You don’t really know how bad things are with the Federalis (as my father likes to call the guys who inhabit the nation’s capital). But Patrick D. McConnell has taken the time and effort to find out. He has written a book, Government of Deceit, about the disaster going on in Washington which is sure to create problems not just nationally, but world wide. Things are even worse than we thought.
Basically the problem involves excessive spending that has been going on for decades. This spending which has involved vote buying in the form of entitlements has encroached heavily on property rights. In the course of this it has seriously undermined American individual freedoms. By taking away incentive to work, the government has also reduced productivity and creation of new products to a bare fraction of what is possible. Little do liberals understand that it is the creation of goods and services that provide the wealth and largess that keeps a society affluent.
All of the unemployment and financial chaos we have seen over the last few years is occuring because we have gone past the tipping point. The economy’s producers can no longer keep up with the entitlements disbursed by the government. Mr. McConnell insists that chaos and disorder WILL result. There is no getting out of it at this point. He may be right. I only know that this next election must be a total rejection of leftist ideas or the U.S. is just one more civilized society that is headed for the trash heap of history.
