From Here: (Thanks to First Draft.)

It comes down to this: When the community has failed a patient by voting an ideologue into office…When the ideologue has failed the patient by writing legislation in his own interest instead of in the patient’s…When the legislative system has failed the patient by allowing the legislation to be considered… When the government has failed the patient by allowing something like this to be signed into law… We as physicians cannot and must not fail our patients by ducking our heads and meekly doing as we’re told.
Because we are their last line of defense.

I’m trying to think of these pulls to the right like somebody grabbing hold of your swing and pulling it way, way back, so you can shoot out into the clear blue sky.
