Freedom is never an option.

Jennifer today and Borepatch a few days ago are on a similar train of thought. Here are my thoughts.

There are virtually no limited government politicians. There are politicians who wouldn’t mind some parts of government smaller, and who definitely want other parts of government to be big and bigger. That applies to those in either of the two major parties. They only disagree on the parts of government they want big and bigger.

I say they only disagree on the parts they want to embiggen because it doesn’t matter what they want smaller. Because no matter who is in the majority, they will spend 99% of their time trying to embiggen the parts they want bigger and almost no time shrinking the parts they say should be smaller. So what we get is more and more government of the kinds everybody hates. Hence the reason we now have “Universal Healthcare” and “The Patriot Act”.

Freedom is never an option. Whiskey is an option. Lots of whiskey. And rum.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    I like W.L. Weller special reserve bourbon. Good price/performance ratio, at least in Atlanta ($13/bottle).

    I’d happily vote for whiskey, Hell, it might become a requirement for voting
