All those wonderful government programs have costs, as we see in this piece from Las Vegas. Of course, for statists, they have benefits too. Now we’ll have more demand for government services and the possibility of more votes for the politicians who will “protect” those made casualties by the very people who the recipients now look to as saviors. What a system. Did you hear the ratchet move?
In other news, I went to a Veterans Day event today that featured a lot of talk about our freedom. You’ll excuse me if I had a hard time believing the majority of Americans really understand what this means (though perhaps they do and only care about protecting their ancient liberty, which is hardly cause for too much excitement).
