If nothing further were at stake, I should not be particularly concerned about whether we believe in a rule world or an unruly one, for, not prizing the purity of our affirmations, I am not afraid that we might hold false beliefs. The problem is that our beliefs about the structure of the world go hand-in-hand with the methodologies we adopt to study it. The worry is not so much that we will adopt the wrong images with which to represent the world, but rather than we will choose wrong tools with which to change it.

QED: Why We Need A New President, Post-Haste
Dust off your thinking caps. I found snazzy paragraph to further support the idea that we need a wholesale replacement of the current administration; who are busilly using the authority vested in the Whitehouse to whip our government into a mono-theocracy. Really, what we need is a rational, thinking president that bases decisions on facts and truth versus the current incarnation.
