Voices of Sanity

It's a shame that voices of reason and intellectual discussion get shoved aside by the media and most political commentators [both the professional Commentariat and the casual blog commenter] in favor of rhetoric and hyperbole...and rank hypocrisy.

Once in awhile, honesty breaks through the fog and morass.
Both parties have equally participated in abandoning the limited role of the federal government. You lay on top of that the careerism of politicians who want to do things so they can get reelected and what you have is a catalyst, which makes that even go faster.

Our problems today are two-fold: We spent money we didn’t have on things we don’t absolutely need, which refers back to the enumerated powers listed in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution.
 Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)


  1. If we just had 59 more of him in the Senate...

  2. [both the professional Commentariat and the casual blog commenter] -- somehow, I feel this was directed at me :) (the casual blog commenter part).

  3. Rosey - Not at all, really speaking of the many voices I see commenting at the blogs I frequent. I've always been rather impressed at the temperament on comments at this humble site.

  4. Oh well, I'm a conservative who by nature is paranoid. HAH
