Internal dissension the greatest threat to freedom

The slow-bleed-to-defeat strategy of the Democrats in Congress has a precedent in the Book of Mormon: "king-men" rebelled, sought the judgment seat, were in league with their country's enemies, and prevented provisions from being sent to their nation's armies.

"Moroni asks Pahoran to strengthen the forces of Helaman—The Lamanites take the city of Nephihah—Moroni is angry with the government. About 62 B.C." (Chapter heading to Alma 59).

"Moroni complains to Pahoran of the government’s neglect of the armies—The Lord suffers the righteous to be slain—The Nephites must use all of their power and means to deliver themselves from their enemies—Moroni threatens to fight against the government unless help is supplied to his armies. About 62 B.C." (Chapter heading to Alma 60).

"Pahoran tells Moroni of the insurrection and rebellion against the government—The king-men take Zarahemla and are in league with the Lamanites—Pahoran asks for military aid against the rebels. About 62 B.C." (Chapter heading to Alma 61).

"Moroni marches to the aid of Pahoran in the land of Gideon—The king-men who refuse to defend their country are put to death—Pahoran and Moroni retake Nephihah—Many Lamanites join the people of Ammon—Teancum slays Ammoron and is in turn slain—The Lamanites are driven from the land, and peace is established—Helaman returns to the ministry and builds up the Church. About 62—57 B.C." (Chapter heading to Alma 62).
