On My Soap Box, Once More !
In recent weeks the cry from the Left and Centrists especially, is simply this:
Government Is Broken
This is a ludicrous concept at best. George Will was right when he said:
“Government is only broken when the Left can’t enact their agenda.”
In actuality, it is working just fine and working currently the exact way it was intended. America was designed to be a small government society for our fore fathers took their que from history, meaning, they saw the flaws inherent in all other forms of Government. Knowing these flaws and the dangers they present, they created a government that espoused the fears of big government and put in place measures that would at the most, derail big government efforts and at the very least, keep it at a slow moving crawl.
I think it is widely accepted in most circles that the far Left agenda is a dangerous concept, even for the misguided Centrists. However, there seems to be this media created perception that Government serves best when it is served from the center. That somehow when we blend small government concepts with big government agenda, we Americans think we are getting the best of both worlds. This perception is a media creation and has been repeated over and over again, especially for the last 50 years, till we have a nation full of centrists calling out that Washington is BROKEN, and of course, joined by the Left as they always are.
What America needs is more Mike Pences and Jim Demints and less John McCains and Joe Liebermans.
