Govern­ment to the res­cue

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

It is fair to con­clude that the po­lit­i­cal left re­gards all mat­ters as the do­main of govern­ment — an “en­light­ened” govern­ment run by them. Fam­ily, faith and free­dom are seen as threats to govern­ment con­trol, and thus must be un­der­mined.

Whether the sun shines, the hur­ri­canes blow or hell freezes over, we can ex­pect “pro­gres­sives” to shape the event as a call for more govern­ment. The pro­gres­sive way is pol­i­tics run amok. When not able to ex­ploit ex­ist­ing events to their sat­is­fac­tion, the left cre­ates events for that pur­pose. And like bratty chil­dren, they will not rest un­til they have their way.
