Give me .... death?

Mark Steyn laments the "Death of the American Idea."

I'm not so sure. Specifically, it's government spending he's concerned with.

"The greatest dangers to liberty," wrote Justice Brandeis, "lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding."

Now who does that remind you of?"

The Democrats, of course. But, well, I've seen a bit too much of a free hand by the Bush Administration, spending-wise, to be able to freely assign blame.

Re-think time, people. It's not so much a conservative-liberal thing, right now, purse-wise.

(In fact, life is much less left-right, black-white, you-me, us-them at all.)

(Just a thought.)
