Senator Jim DeMint has called the Obama Administration the most "anti-business" and "anti-American" of his lifetime. I can just hear the pundits sniggering now at the sport they're about to have with him for such direct and intemperate remarks. It's a short outburst that puts its finger on the crucial spot:
Things that are just so anathema to the principles of freedom, and everything he has come up with centralizes more power in Washington, creates more socialist-style, collectivist policies.Ay, there's the rub. Under President Obama, government at all levels grows; the private sector suffers except for the Fortune 500 Quislings like Jeff Immelt's GE which prosper by getting in bed with the government; people are told what kind of lightbulbs they will use and are exposed to liability for having a garage sale; government unions flourish while lesser-paid and less-protected private sector workers foot the bill; more and more people cannot find work and avail themselves of the government's inducements to become dependent.
Need Noman go on? He doesn't know much about Senator DeMint except that whenever he hears the name, there's usually a lefty harangue invoking it. Good job, Senator.
