DeMint Takes a Stand

With a $825 billion stimulus bill working its way through Congress (the House of Representatives is debating the bill today), Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is drawing a connection obvious to most libertarians, but jarring to members of both major parties:

DeMint, speaking Jan. 27 at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., explained the Obama administration will "create crisis and widespread panic" just like its predecessor in order to get Congress to act expeditiously.

"I've been around long enough to know whenever someone tell me I have to make a decision right now, my response in no," DeMint said. "That clears it up right away and I think more and more the Bush administration and now this administration knows that they're not going to get a quick reaction out of Congress unless they create crisis and widespread panic. And that's going to be their M.O. to get Congress to act."
Creating false crises to push an agenda? Sounds familiar. Check out the Illustrated Road to Serfdom and let us know in the comments section how far along you think we are! Considering this socio-political trajectory, perhaps Obama really will bring us "progress."
