John Hinderaker nails it.
Lenin wrote that the only question in politics is “Who-whom.” Filling in the ellipsis, the question is, Who is screwing whom? Sadly, many Americans–based on recent election results, perhaps a majority–are now Leninists. In their eyes, government is merely a means to steal someone else’s money. They rebel only if it turns out that they are on the wrong end of the screwing. This is, to put it very mildly, not what the Founders had in mind.
