Why We Should All Want Obama’s Economic Policies to Fail

leave a comment »

I usually don’t get into debates about the effectiveness of economic policies. Certainly above my payrate. So I would never say that so-and-so’s economic policies will or will not work. My objections rest instead on the basic ideas of how government and economics are designed to work, and always have worked, in this country. Thus, I could care less whether Obama succeeds on some, most, or all of his ideas, because his ideas right out of the box are inapposite to our constitution and our civic way of life. It would be like cleaning your floor with a sandblaster. It will be clean, for sure, but ruined. Beyond salvage, if it’s been “effective” enough.
