Great short article by Ms. Quade on the Victory Girls blog.
BTW if you want to understand how the USA got to the predicament it is in, I recommend you read/listen to the scholarly work by Mark Levin titled “Ameritopia”. It is at times it is difficult to read because of sourcing of texts/writings over the past three hundred years. But if you stick to it, it then all unrolls and reveals quite plainly the implications and results. I cannot be more enthusiastic about this recommendation.
