We Got Hosed, Ayn Rand

I realised this morning that we capitalists and Libertarians have indeed been had by the Bush administration. We supported his demagaoguery on social issues, his incessant playing to conservative religious people, because we knew that once elected he would reduce the scope and size of the federal government and pack the courts with judges who know how to do their jobs.

We even supported the faith-based initiative because it made sense.

Today, I thought, we've got it backwards.

The social conservatives supported his demagoguery on economic issues, because they knew that he would oppose gay marriage, make it look like America had some moral values after all, and pack the courts with judges who know how to do their jobs.

No, no, I'm merely jittery about tax reform next year. The fiscal crisis Bush has been creating will materialise, spending will finally be cut, and...

Yes, that must be it. Take deep breaths, guys. This will all turn out all right.
