Nice reference to Sean Gabb here!

As a people that have long puffed out their chests for having the most free and richest country in the history of the world, it is hard for Americans to come to grips with the fact that their country is now a toilet (hat tip to Sean Gabb for this phenomenal metaphor). The country they have long viewed as a bastion of liberty and free markets is now nothing more than a bankrupt, run-of-the-mill police state, but many Americans have been slow to recognize this, and they continue to flail away at issues that are completely irrelevant or quixotic. The prime example of this is the fact that many Americans still waste their time trying to get Congressman X or Senator Y elected, as though it really matters whether the man in Washington robbing them to fund war, government eavesdropping, and corporate welfare is from the Donkey syndicate or the Elephant syndicate. There is a very fine line dividing the cautiously optimistic from the hopelessly naïve, and I fear that an overwhelming number of Americans have slipped into the latter category as they wistfully imagine that their government and their economy can be salvaged in the voting booth.

    Smashing up a leaky lifeboat is not a helpful life support procedure in the middle of an ocean. No matter how angry you might be with it.
