Getting pretty tired of public sector unions. Basically they and the Democrats get together to bribe each other with our money. And now they’ve stormed the capitol in Wisconsin hoping to prevent the legislation trying to break them up.
Is that a democratic option we just didn’t know about? You invade a capitol and keep legislative action from happening? I guess it’s probably called something like a “mob veto”. So what would be an appropriate democratic response? Tear gas? Angry bees? Ninjas? That would be democracy in action — or action democracy.
Really, all we want is to finally cut the budget and break up these groups that basically exist to make sure the government is expensive and ineffective. And it is friggin’ hard. There are large swaths of people who think there is nothing more important than the government spending lots of money on them, and it is rather pathetic. But look at the factor of motivation here; we find these parasites annoying, but to cut them off is death to them. That’s why it seems unlikely that the average American who thinks we should cut the budget will be as motivated as the defenders of the status quo unless he feels his own way of life is really at stake from the system collapsing entirely. Don’t know how we get there. Sometimes I think we’ll just have to wait for the collapse and concentrate on making a better system next time so this doesn’t happen again.
