One of our oldest and dearest blog-buddies asks a silly question:
GRANDSTANDING: Transportation Committee Dem Wants Hearing on United Airlines Incident.
Must every problem or pain find its solution or palliative in Washington?
Well, of course it must. We are a post-Constitutional Progressivist nation, and the lamentable condition of always looking to an all-powerful central government for solutions to our woes—real, contrived, or insignificant—is the ultimate intention and desired end-state of Progressivism. It always was.
I know I said Stephen’s question was silly, but in truth it’s anything but. It’s penetrating and insightful; it’s the only question that really matters, when you get right down to it. We should have been asking it all along, and we’d be a damned sight better off if we had been. It’s the question that inspired the founding of this nation, and ought to be always in the forefront of our thoughts.
