There is an illness afflicting a number of adults in our country. Its most insidious and deadly symptom is a victim’s inability to care about those less fortunate to the point that the patient will knowingly engage in behavior that is detrimental to themselves. Its current designation is termed “conservatism.”
This horrendous disease is causing the demise of the “Party of Lincoln” and is manifested most prominently in the U.S. Congress. If it is allowed to spread unchecked, those most severely infected will cease to exist as a political entity.
However, there is a cure. It is commonly referred to as “rational thought.” This cure, when used in conjunction with compassion and common sense, eliminates the illness and produces something people with intelligence call progress!
