Purpose of Blog

As you read through the weekly Leftist LUNCs, you may ask: "Why is it that Liberals typically start out with wonderfully positive and laudable intents, but end up with negative and regrettable consequences?" "Why do Leftist LUNCs continue to happen, over and over again and on such a grand scale?"

There are various answers to these questions hinted at in the Leftist LUNCs, themselves. I will briefly discuss each in this blog.

Gov: Wrong Tool for the Right Job--Intro

Introduction--Costly Government

Each of the Leftist LUNCs that have and will be explored in my other blog have at least one thing in common--i.e. "costly and deleterious expansion of government." Liberals tend to look to governments, particularly centralized governments, as the means to their worthy ends.

Unfortunately, though, as will be made clear, in many cases governments are the worst means, and they are often a part of the problem rather than the solution

This is not to say that governments are completely worthless. They are good and perhaps even the best means for certain ends (particularly those things listed in the Constitution), but not so good for others. It is just that Liberals tend to champion causes for which governments are terrible, and shy away from or challenge causes for which governments work best. (See below)

  • Strength in Numbers  -For many leftist causes, there is weakness rather than strength in numbers because the many are being supported by the few.
  • Elitism and Specialization -Most of government isn't peopled with the best and brightest.
  • Cold Nanny -It doesn't make sense to turn big-hearted projects over to an entity with no heart.
