Sowing Seeds of Discontent

With each debate and campaign stop, the Democrats are clarifying their vision for our future. From their point of view, it goes like this:
  • We must quit in Iraq, it's the fastest route to shame and defeat.
  • We have to bring our troops home from Bush's unnecessary war so that we can send them to do peacekeeping in areas vital to the national interest [sic] like Darfur or Kosovo.
  • Terrorism is mostly our fault anyway.
  • You will have your taxes raised, in every way imaginable.
  • Protecting our borders is fundamentally racist.
  • What our health care system needs is more bureaucracy.
All of this fits their worldview to a tee: Government gains more power from having more dispossessed and disaffected victims so that it can exercise that power to control society through taxation and regulation.
