The Daily Caller has an interesting what-should-we-cut? forum featuring various political creatures. Before getting into the nitty-gritty of which federal department to axe, my eyes got stuck on this answer from the Democratic Droopy, Paul Begala:
The government of the United States of America is the greatest source for good in the world. The federal government freed the slaves, defeated the Nazis and integrated our schools. The federal government cured polio, built the interstate highways and put men on the moon. Oh, and the federal government — with Al Gore's leadership — really did create the Internet.
Libertarians, on the other hand, have given us pompous, turgid literature and plans to legalize drugs. Call me old school, but I believe in E Pluribus Unum, not Canis Canem Edit.
In related news, the Democratic talk-shop Think Progress has reacted to the candidacy of an anti-Drug War Republican like so–"Meet Republican Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson: Nullificationist Who Opposes Child Labor Laws."
Question for my liberal and progressive brothers and sisters who hate the Drug War as much as I do: How long you gonna sit there and take it?
