Reasonable and Logical Observations

“Often, in politics, it doesn’t matter what the facts are. What matters is how well you make your case to the voting public.” –economist Thomas Sowell

“[T]he prime feature of political decision-making is that it’s a zero-sum game. One person’s gain is of necessity another person’s loss. As such, political allocation of resources is conflict-enhancing, while market allocation is conflict-reducing. The greater the number of decisions made in the political arena, the greater the potential for conflict.” –economist Walter E. Williams

“America is on a path to bankruptcy. It’s easy to get bogged down arguing about lots of small cuts, but we’ll only make progress by abolishing whole departments and entire missions. I hope the public understands it has to be done.” –columnist John Stossel

“Unlike most of the 111 that preceded it, the 112th Congress must begin the process of restoring the national regime and civic culture the Founders bequeathed. This will require reviving the rule of law, reasserting the relevance of the Constitution, and affirming the reality of American exceptionalism. … The American Revolution was a political, not a social revolution; it was about emancipating individuals for the pursuit of happiness, not about the state allocating wealth and opportunity. Hence our exceptional Constitution, which says not what government must do for Americans but what it cannot do to them.” –columnist George Will

“The point Obama wanted to make [in his Tucson speech] was not that political rhetoric caused the violence but that such rhetoric — like, for example, criticism directed at Barack Obama — should be toned down. So even as he conceded that rhetoric did not cause the violence, Obama argued that it should be muted anyway. And he cloaked his appeal in so much emotionalism, in so many tear-jerking references to the recently departed, that some in his audience might not have noticed he was making the political point he wanted to make all along.” –columnist Byron York

“As many have observed, the coming-together moment in Tucson after the shooting wasn’t a memorial, it was an event. The White House put it on: ‘Together We Thrive — Tucson and America.’ T-shirts carried the message, and signs were placed on seats for Obama’s speech. To say this was in bad taste is an egregious understatement. Why didn’t they just call it a campaign whistle stop?” –columnist Jon Rappoport
