Boomers: ‘Sorry, but we spent all the money.’

America's post-war wealth is now gone and in its place stands a mountain of debt that our kids will shoulder all the way to their graves.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

The United States did not seek the role of defender of world peace. We were doomed to it by the events of the mid 20th century.

Failure in real time.

Liberals believe that there is no societal ill that does not call for a massive dose of government – despite now four full generations of compelling evidence to the contrary.

Dems for repeal.

Good policy is good politics and the best possible policy is to get this horrendous law off the books as quickly as possible.

Liberals imagine that a large population must have the oversight and control of a small, highly-educated circle of elites. From such imaginings emerge bad ideas like Obamacare.

Until Obamacare went “live,” most people viewed the debate on health care as purely political and mostly abstract. Now it's real and the reality is causing heartburn for the Obama administration.

Whether articulated in these terms or not, what we are seeing is what happens when a small number of elites presume to impose upon us their priorities at the expense of those of the majority.

If journalism were functioning in America, the reporting would go beyond the ‘gotcha’ politics of the moment and would drill down into the actual substance of what separates the parties.

One might forgive the president for standing firm on Obamacare, his signature legislative achievement. But there can be no forgiving his intransigence with respect to the rest of the federal budget.

That the vast majority of federal spending proceeds apace during what is laughingly called a shutdown is testament to the fact that federalism as envisioned by the founders has long slipped its constitutional moorings.

You will not hear anyone in the mainstream media say that making a policy demand as government funding is about to run out is a perfectly legitimate prerogative of elected legislators.

Senate Democrats refused to continue funding the government because they do not want to be subject to Obamacare – a law that they imposed upon the rest of us.

Sen. Cruz has reminded us that there is not a single Republican fingerprint on the abomination that is Obamacare. Not one. On a measure of such scope, it’s unprecedented.

Obamacare is so poorly conceived that it cannot ever actually function. The process of recognizing that fact and correcting it is now underway.

It’s not going to just “work out.”

Among those that still support Obamacare, the talking point has become, “What if it all just works out?” And thus we arrive at the pass at which the entire rationale for annexing one-sixth of the U.S. economy is reduced to wishful thinking.
