Fighting To Maintain The Illusion

Robert Tracinski has a fantastic summary of what's going on across the nation as our debt bombs go off. It says what I've been thinking, but it does so better than I can. Rather than try to top his excellent prose, I'll just link and excerpt.


(T)here is something deeper here than just favor-selling and vote-buying. There is something that almost amounts to a twisted idealism in the Democrats' crusade. They are fighting, not just to preserve their special privileges, but to preserve a social ideal. Or rather, they are fighting to maintain the illusion that their ideal system is benevolent and sustainable.

You are correct. The whole version is great. The point of miniature secession was one I would not have thought of, but it is so very apt.

I wonder the percentage of people either instinctively or through articles like this know what's really going on in Madison.
