When dealing with modern day politics it might be reasonable to consider Newton’s laws of motion although actually part of physics might also be applicable to political science.
Let’s consider paraphrases of Newton’s three laws and how they might apply to the last election. The laws might also be applied to The Affordable Care Act its inception, the mass of the American People and the force need to move that mass, and its potential demise.
1)An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
2)Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).
3)For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.
