Reagan was wrong; it is opposition to Government that is the problem … [Darleen Click]
… because Government is the Solution.
Why don’t Democrats just say it? They really believe in active government and think it does good and valuable things. One of those valuable things is that government creates jobs — yes, really — and also the conditions under which more jobs can be created. […]
It ought to be perfectly obvious: When the private sector is no longer investing, the economy will spin downward unless the government takes on the task of investing. And such investments — in transportation and clean energy, refurbished schools and the education of the next generation — can prime future growth.
Yet the drumbeat of propaganda against government has made it impossible for the plain truth about the stimulus to break through. […]
So when conservatives say, as they regularly do, that “government doesn’t create jobs,” the riposte should be quick and emphatic: “Yes it has, and yes, it does!”
One really has to give E.J. Dionne of WaPo props for being brutally honest about the Left’s principles and aims … ever bigger Government to run our lives. Because, let’s face it, our fatness, clinginess to godbothering and incorrect thoughts prove we can’t be trusted on our own.
So maybe someone can ask Dionne, or any statist-Liberal apparatchik “Well, why have a private sector at all? We can have 0% unemployment with the Gov running everything and making being unemployed a crime.”
Like, that hasn’t been tried before, right?
A good question to pose: why should we rely on the morality of politicians? Why should we hand over our rights to pandering temporary politicians?Tags: e.j. dionne, government is the solution, leftism, liberalism, ronald reagan, soviet union, washington post
