Quote of the Day

"Free people can treat each other justly, but they can't make life fair. To get rid of the unfairness among individuals, you have to exercise power over them. The more fairness you want, the more power you need. Thus, all dreams of fairness become dreams of tyranny in the end."

-- Andrew Klavan

There is a fundamental difference between equal opportunity and our Dear Leader's promise of equal outcome.

The only way the government can declare an equal outcome is to make everyone equally miserable through a totalitarian state. Russia, China, N. Korea, Cuba and the slave states did a good job of that.

Sounds like what Comrade Hopey Changey wants to do.

Can someone email this to the white house? Oh, never mind. They probably have people assigned to reading these blogs. Maybe this will end up on the president's morning briefing if we are lucky.

I love Andrew Klaven's stuff. He's got the right ideas about the direction the country needs to head. Thanks for the quote.
