Enlightened ramblings of a minarchist libertarian with Objectivist tendencies

Thursday, July 01, 2004


That is the only word I could come with describe the performance of GOP lawmakers in their attempts to get the next budget passed.

As they infight over the question of which is more important, reducing the deficit or cutting taxes, they completely miss the obvious answer that both are important. The problem is that the Republican party has increasingly become a party of more talk, less action.

Of course, it would never occur to any of them (perhaps other than Ron Paul) that they could have it both ways if they would only work to completely wean themselves off pork-barrel spending and take a red pen to the majority of government programs. It is easy, just do what you promise to do every election cycle, reduce the size of the federal government.
