Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns


Didn’t get to watch Edwards last night, but here’s the transcript of his speech. Sounds like he’s sticking with "two Americas." Also sounds like those two Americas are divided 98-2. After promising to pay for more of your health care and child daycare, we are told: "So now you ask how are we going to pay for this? Well, here’s how we’re going to pay for it. Let me be very clear, for 98 percent of Americans, you will keep your tax cut — that’s 98 percent. But we’ll roll back the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, close corporate loopholes, and cut government contractors and wasteful spending." David Frum asks "Does this speech make any sense at all? They’re going to raise taxes on almost nobody – and pay for almost everything." And check out Michael Knox Beran’s analysis of Edwards’ invocation of Disraeli’s "Two Nations" and why it’s dangerous.
