Sabl's Law of U.S. Political Rhetoric y Andrew Sabl

"No argument can succeed in American politics if it contains a subjunctive."

The Administration never says the people it's spying on might be terrorists, or that it would be a good idea to tap their phones if they were terrorists. They ARE terrorists, the whole policy is a program for keeping track of terrorists, and anyone who opposes it is easy on terrorists.

Conversely, imagine Democrats trying to say that the power "might" be abused:
"You're accusing the President of dirty tricks! Where's the proof, you paranoid Deaniac?"
