"A government can be compared to our lungs.
Our lungs are best when we don't
realize they are helping us breathe.
It is when we are constantly aware of our lungs
that we know they have come down with an illness."
by:
Lao-Tzu
[Li Erh] (570-490 BC) 'Old Sage', Father of Taoism

    Using this analogy, Americans have a lung cancer. The only way the United States will live is to cut out the cancer.

    Well said, but do not confuse not being aware of your lungs with weak lungs... indeed, it is only when you have strong lungs that you are healthy and carefree!
