Big-government conservatives in the legislature

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 6:34 AM

John Brummett this morning enumerates the ways in which legislators — mouthing small-governmnent platitudes — govern like big government corporate enablers. And it's not just the 2,000 bills crammed into the filing bins.

The balance of all that inessential legislating taking place under the Capitol dome tends to fall generally in these categories of hyperactive and intrusive state government:

—Imposition of personal religion in defiance of our U.S. Constitution.

—Similarly unconstitutional interposition against federal laws, which would get us sued and sanctioned.

—Worshipful big-government partnership with big business by which the little man’s money is getting systematically transferred to the arrogant corporations with the best lobbyists.

—Allegiance to the bogus notion that it is the bait put out by the government, not the daring of smart and innovative people, that creates jobs.

Amen.
