What is needed is a GOP that is as committed to reforming entitlements as the Democrats are to expanding them. Democrats knew, in 2009-2010, that Obamacare was politically unpopular and might undermine their personal political aspirations. But many of them voted for it, anyway. Why? Because expanding federal benefits is embedded in the DNA of their party and is a central element of the modern progressive’s self-conception. Republicans have no such core conviction, and it shows.”

The only real option to correcting this mess is getting government out of it. That’s obviously not going to happen with the current crop of geniuses scurrying around under the Capitol Dome in DC. Removing government from the equation isn’t really a high priority for lawmakers in Mississippi either, no matter what they tell you. This includes the spineless Republicans who are more adept at spouting talking points on the campaign trail than they are finding ways to put those points into action that accomplishes the goal.

What the slave apparently didn’t know about Jefferson was the many years he had wrestled with the problem of slavery, much as today we see groups making demands without first demanding of themselves a fuller understanding of the circumstances that has led to their perception of the underlying challenge. In November of 1808, President Thomas […]

Government becomes involved in certain areas of our lives; the problems then become worse, so the government has to devise another solution to fix the problem that it created in the first place. It results in a neverending cycle of government intervention.
