    "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 murder is less to fear"

    You're not even making sense now.

    1) American law already states that federal funds can not be used to pay for abortions.

    2) Obama cannot simply make a new law that says the government can fund abortions through an executive order. Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer demonstrate the power an executive order has.

    What exactly are you having trouble with? The fact that it is already a law in the books, or the fact that this law can not be changed through an executive order?

    Is there a law that says that law can not be overturned and how would a executive order prevent this?

    2) Obama cannot simply make a new law that says the government can fund abortions through an executive order. Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer demonstrate the power an executive order has.

    DO you admit that an executive order is meaningless since it can not change anything?
