The Objective Eye

"Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat which it can blame for the nation's troubles and use as a justification of its own demand for dictatorial powers. In Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany, it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen."
- Ayn Rand, "America's Persecuted Minority: Big Business" (1961)

What Would Ronald Reagan Do?

Now Playing: "Heretics" - Lane, Hellborg, Sipe, from "Time Is The Enemy 1996

Or more specifically, How Would Ronald Reagan Handle This Bureaucratic Meltdown?

Gee, see if you can guess:

"The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."

That, in a nice nutshell, is a concise history of the twin Italian-Fascism-Revival entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and how they evolved into the corruption bomb we've just had blow up in our faces.

Where, oh where, is Reagan's brand of cut-through-the-crap leadership today? I'll tell you where it's not, and that's between the ears of that frothing, nonsense-spewing retro-Marxist and economic illiterate Obama, nor that craven conformist and... economic illiterate John McCain.

Gee, I'd like someone to vote for...

Once again, with feeling:

Dear France, can we borrow your President for eight years or so?
