“Add Hillar y Clinton’s endorsement of driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants (‘it makes sense’) to a very long list.
“The list? A seemingly unending series of bad policy proposals and loopy values that liberals have championed. [. . .]
“Whether it was education policy, welfare policy, economic policy, foreign policy or social policy, time after time after time what became the guiding lights of modern American liberalism proved to be utter disasters. [. . .] All too frequently people who were supposed to be helped — were severely harmed. Most disturbingly, the proponents of these policies seemed to simply shrug their shoulders at the results and move straight on to the next disaster.”
