Liberalism in America today and Munchausen by proxy syndrome is the same thing with different victims
Installing the appropriate words in the classic case
In MBPS, an individual — [a liberal]— causes...symptoms in [the needy].
Typically, the cause is a need for attention and sympathy from...[voters]. Some experts believe that it isn't just the attention that's gained from the [problems with the needy] that drives this behavior, but also the satisfaction in deceiving individuals who they consider to be more important and powerful than themselves.
Because the [liberal] appears to be so caring and attentive, often no one suspects any wrongdoing. Diagnosis is made extremely difficult due to the the ability of the [liberal] to manipulate [voters] with symptoms in the [needy].
