“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”
Marcus Tullius CICERO (106-43 BC)
Is America at the point where it must fear traitors within? She stands well armed, with the latest military technology at her fingertips, and with more being developed with every new moon. She controls outer space, and for the most part the seven seas.
Yet she is rotting from within with a rot brought on us and fertilized by traitors to the American ideal, its Constitution, and its Christian underpinnings among whom are her elected leaders.
We had a President (Bush) who refused to secure the borders of his own country, even after two states on her southern border declare states of emergency. What goes through the mind of a man who takes no action in this situation? Does he care, or is he too busy with other issues that take precedence? Dare we entertain the thought that he is fully aware of alien millions pouring into the country he has sworn to defend and silently welcomes them?
