Low taxes are a wonderful thing -- a quick peak at the Reagan economy vs. the Carter economy tells the story like a cold slap in the face. But, low taxes must go hand in hand with reduced spending. Without downsizing the government, we seem to be spiraling into economic oblivion.
What happened to sanity in the Republican Party? I think some thought you said "Hannity".
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
