Quote of the Day

Bill Clinton on the success of Republican economic philosophy. Or a lack thereof.

You know, there’s not a single solitary example on the planet, not one, of a country that is succesful because the economy has triumphed over the government and choked it off and driven the tax rates to zero, driven the regulations to nonexistent and abolished all government programs, except for defense, so people in my income group never have to pay a nickel to see a cow jump over the moon. There is no example example of a succesful country that looks like that.

Every Ayn-Rand worshiping Libertarian ought to be asked every single time they step up to the podium to provide an example of a successful libertarian country. There isn't one and never will be.

I would ask the same of on-the-fence independents who seem to think the Republicans might have an idea or two worth trying despite the complete lack of evidence to support their policies.
