So today, instead of trying to maintain slavery the way the secessionists did when they concluded the Union was doomed after Abraham Lincoln won the presidency in 1860, these modern-day rebels are not content to abide by the results of elections, or to respect the “law of the land.” They are intent on repealing the health care plan which conservatives authored in the first place!

They can’t be trusted. They lie. They’re disloyal. They think their constituents are superior to all other Americans and all the other people on earth. They speak with “forked tongues.” They routinely break their promises.

The “members” Boehner refers to who are now threatening to force a catastrophic United States default on its debts, represent a fraction of one of two legislative branches; in war against the other legislative branch; and against the co-equal executive branch; and the co-equal judicial branch; in order to dismantle the Affordable Care Act – which they call “Obamacare” – which would provide affordable health insurance to 20 million uninsured Americans.

Boehner may wear the title “Speaker of the House,” but he’s nothing but a puppet, whose strings are being pulled by a modern-day secessionist political force, a modern-day confederacy.
