Bill Moyers Essay: On the Sabotage of Democracy describes secession by another name.
If you doubt what Moyers is talking about, look at the flags that are being carried by the disloyal opposition.
I know these people are so frustrated, that they are trying to anger us. If I can stand to see the American flag burned in protest, I suppose I can stand to see the confederate flag.
When someone burns the flag they are trying to tell you what they do not want. Is it fair to say that when they display the flag of the confederacy, they are telling you what they want? If this is any indication of how a grudge can be handed down for over 140 years, you can imagine how long they will be willing to carry on the grudge against the Affordable Care Act. Will we have to defeat these people more resoundingly than they were defeated in the Civil War (they call it The War Of Northern Aggression), before we can get the point across? Or has the American experiment finally reached the end of the road?
You might take the lesson from this that we have to defeat the latest move in Congress by the Republicans the way we treated the surrender of the Japanese after World War II. Then we insisted on abject surrender with no face saving possibility. The Republicans are giving every indication that this is the only way they will get the point, if indeed they will ever get it.
