Newt a Progressive?
Will Newt, yet another statist win the R nomination? Newt is a progressive in the sense that he believes he is one of the “elite” class and seems to think that big, controlling government is often the solution for the problems we face in America. The following clip shows Newt in his own words talk about how FDR was the best thing since sliced bread.
FDR who raised the top rate of taxes to 90%? FDR, who’s policies scared the hell out of businesses, created greater unemployment and extended the Great Depression by seven years? Yup. As most are ignorant of the statist FDR was, they can be forgiven, but the fact is Newt knows history and still thinks FDR was great, because of the progressive he was, because of the government expansion he put into place…
If you are a statist, and believe that government is the solution to every problem, then folks like Obama and Newt are great choices, but for the rest of us they are different flavors of the same poison. I think it is odd that during the primaries that Republicans have been tripping over themselves trying to choose the person they think can beat the statist, Obama. Instead they should be looking for that person who would best follow constitutional principles of limited government.
