Quote Of The Week

Sorry for slow blogging, family emergency mid-week has made things rather hectic around here.

Here’s a thought from Paul A. Rahe that I hope will get your brain cells working, tho:

Thanks to the Progressives, we now live in the worst of times, and we also live in the best of times. Our greatest misfortune is our greatest good fortune. Thanks to our benefactor Barack Obama, we live at the moment – one hundred years after the initial victory of Progressivism – when the tyrannical character of the administrative state is becoming evident to one and all, when with the help of what my friend Michael Barone calls “gangster government,” we are being made aware that, due to our abandonment of federalism and the separation of powers, we now live under a government that is irresponsible in every sense of the word. Put bluntly, President Obama is giving us the political education that we were denied in the schools and universities that the Progressives have crafted for our indoctrination. Unpleasant as it is to be confronted with gangster government, it is enlightening – and now, for the first time in my lifetime, we are in a position to think clearly about our options. No one is kidding anyone any more, and no one is pretending. We are witnessing the Great Unmasking. As William Blake once said, it is the road of excess that leads to the palace of wisdom. For us, alas, there is no other way.

Read the whole thing. Really.

    Agreed, with the caveat that one only “sees” what one wants to see. Denial runs deepest in the gut, and if a person wants to believe the New, New, New Deal is working and beneficial – in spite of massive amounts of evidence to the contrary – there is no power on earth that will alter that perception. The crucial issue here is the numbers. Are there more of them that will vote, than us?
