15. That explains all

the people on a Democratic message board that insist we trust the government implicitly to know what's best for us because questioning the President is unpatriotic.

He's picking out the authoritarian Republicans and libertarian Democrats for his example. Switch the two and you get...well, not the exact opposite, but something different. Largely what you get is people that think the government should never be questioned, but don't recognize the other party as a legitimate authority.
