Traitors in Our Midst

The passage that I am about to share, was written over a couple thousand years ago, but it seems so poignant and fitting today…

“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 carries his banner openly.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, 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 the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

A murderer is less to be feared.”

It could very well be about the Bush crime family, or the Clinton crime family, or the Rockefeller crime family, or most of the candidates running for the office of president, or the numerous governors selling out their own states to foreign interests (e.g., Schwarzenegger, Perry), or the DHS head himself Michael Chertoff , or any of these people. Oh, so many traitors in our midst to choose from [so little time] ….
