Noah Webster blamed government failure not on politicians, but on voters who “neglect the divine commands and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”I assume that these men are bad because they do no revere the Ten Commandments or respect traditional American values and customs. They share the moral standards of their lowest common constituency, sunk to the level where fear passes for scruples and propaganda fuels ideals.

The president and the rest of the feckless insiders are still to blame for their incompetence and duplicity. But their guilt does not excuse the voters who themselves empowered such men to deprive us of exceptional life, individual liberty and the pursuit of personal happiness. Reform begins when the polls open.
