We Need to Change Its Constitution

Cantor Scolds Committee Chairmen | National Review Online

Sources say the chairmen were slightly surprised to hear such a warning from the mild-mannered Virginian. But with rank-and-file Republicans angry about the farm bill’s collapse, they know Cantor is facing pressure.

This farm bill, like all farm bills, was nothing more than a huge boodle-bucket full of pork.

That “rank and file” Republicans were angry about its failure tells you everything you need to know about rank and file Republicans. It also tells you everything you need to know about the possibility of the GOP, as presently constituted, ever stopping, let alone reversing, the march of the government Leviathan.

The key phrase in the above is “as presently constituted.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
