Economic Choices

Sorry for the absence. 6 days of the flu and counting…

I love this quote. It captures the essence of the Conservative movement. Sadly, the GOP has largely abandoned these principles.

“But beyond this, beyond this we have to offer America and the world a larger vision. We must remove government’s smothering hand from where it does harm; we must seek to revitalize the proper functions of government. But we do these things to set loose again the energy and the ingenuity of the American people. We do these things to reinvigorate those social and economic institutions which serve as a buffer and a bridge between the individual and the state — and which remain the real source of our progress as a people.”

Ronald Reagan March 20, 1981 CPAC speech

Setting loose the individual versus providing employment, housing, healthcare and retirement for people. The choice is becoming much clearer again. Do you want freedom or the promise of security? (there is no guarantee)  I’ll take freedom every time.
