An outstanding summary of America's leadership woes, via Instapundit.
"Welcome to liberal utopia, where barriers are not erected against
terrorists or illegal aliens on our nation's borders, but rather against
citizens, and where wheelchair-bound veterans enroute to honor their
comrades face tighter security than terrorists enroute to murder a US
Ambassador. This is where up is down, wrong is right, illegality is
celebrated as progress, and where Constitutionalism is derided as
racist. No longer relegated to the fever swamps of academic fancy,
utopia has acquired real estate and made known its demands."
"Chiefly instructive in all this is the salient reality that any person
capable of wielding the instrumentalities of the state in a despotic
manner in the present, will prove equally capable in the future when he
controls your health care."
