Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “Biden thinks America accomplished jack squat without government” edition

Our gaffe-tastic VP:

Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive,” he said. “In the middle of the Civil War you had a guy named Lincoln paying people $16,000 for every 40 miles of track they laid across the continental United States… No private enterprise would have done that for another 35 years.”

Retorts Reason

What was the “government vision and government incentive” that produced the assembly line? Motion-picture film? Air conditioning? The electric guitar? How about the personal computer? The mobile phone? Non-violent resistance? Aspirin?

Though Biden is generally not to be taken seriously, the government-centrism of his comments are an accurate reflection of his boss, and part of the reason why next Tuesday is going to be an awkward day of work at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Well, Al Gore did give us the Internet, so there’s that.

  2. The more people the government employs, the more jobs they create! I guess that’s why the military is so big.
