Quote Of The Day

by Doug Mataconis

[W]e need to start by making sure politicians who talk about free markets practice what they preach. One of the reasons why people may have lost faith in freedom is that leaders used limited-government rhetoric while expanding the size and scope of government. Free markets got a black eye even though the actual policy was intervention and central planning. So again, leaders who profess to support markets need to act like that once in power. If we do that, we’ll prove that freedom really does work.

– Ron Paul, in response to a question about how to restore public faith in free markets

    “One of the reasons why people may have lost faith in freedom is that leaders used limited-government rhetoric while expanding the size and scope of government.”

    That’s precisely why I think the Republicans got the thumping they deserved on election day.
