Seeing This All In One Place Is Horrifying

It’s Not Your Founding Fathers’ Republic Any More by Myron Magnet, City Journal Summer 2014

Presidents, Congresses, and courts are creating an elective despotism.

Hell, it’s not my father’s republic any more.

But read the whole thing.  Magnet is both magisterial and brilliant in his measured explication of just how far we’ve fallen, why we have fallen (hint:  it was a group effort) and from where we have fallen.

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.
