Such passion, such vitriol.Comment Posted By djh On 16.09.2009 @ 06:49
Great post and comments.
I think this discussion highlights the thoughts of many, that we have very poor choices in this matter and after the choice, no control over what happens. I think I am a conservative but question what that means. Am I against big government? I live/work in the North East but winter in Arizona. I have for 14 years driven across the fruited plain in the fall and spring. I could not do this if the Interstate system did not exist.
I have a limited knowledge of economics/finance and do not understand debt and spending since the 1950's. I look at my grandchildren and wonder, how is this sustainable?
At this point my position is a pox on both their houses! but what do I have to offer in a positive vein?
The Constitution was designed to create a more perfect union, perhaps we should go back to first principles.?
In this debate about the shape and size of government it is difficult to align oneself with the traditional labels. It was not the conservatives who fought slavery in England in the early 19th century but the liberals. Now, it is the liberals who seem to want to control the means of production, denying individual liberty.Comment Posted By djh On 12.04.2009 @ 13:31
I have been following your blog on this and your thoughts on modern conservatism. Recently, I re-read Thomas Sowell's "Conflict of Visions". I think of myself as a "Constrained", one who looks to small incremental increases in and by society. Obama is an "Unconstrained", thinking that through intellectual brillance utopia can be achieved. I do not think he, and liberals in general are evil, but their overreach has unintended consequences, usually negative.
May you have a happy/ prosperous and productive New Year.Comment Posted By djh On 1.01.2009 @ 10:00
