Key word "if". Dr. Sowell did not say that it was likely or not.

Did you read the complete sentence? "It would not matter to me if the next five presidents in a row were all women, if these happened to be the best individuals available at the time." Apparently you missed the qualification that they be the best individuals available at the time.

Campaigns are about glib talk and in many cases claims that they will not have the ability to fulfill if elected. Unfortunately, we only get to vote for the candidates on the ballot and in many cases the got there based on the primary election votes of low information voters. Further the politicians do their best to make as many of us as they can be low information voters.

Well for one thing their opponents would likely attack any unverifiable claims and raise questions about them.

All candidates for public office should be required to submit a resume of their experience and qualifications for the office that they seek. Said resumes should then be made available to the public for validation. Why should politicians not have to provide to their potential employers (voters) what most individuals are required to provide to their potential employers in the private sector?

The only way to wean people off of the programs is to reduce their benefits over time without regard to their other income. Otherwise the potential loss of free benefits provides an incentive to not work, because they do not become significantly better of from working because of the reduction of the free benefits.

Do you really believe the members of either party will ever even propose such limits, much less let them be enacted? If you do, you don't have a clue.

And spousal benefits (free stuff). But, just wait until those "married gays" have a falling out and want out of the "contract".

"Ryan is proposing experimental programs – Opportunity Grants – that consolidates 11 distinct government anti-poverty programs into one cash grant to states, allowing states flexibility to propose new and creative ways to use these funds." Better yet, get the federal government out of the welfare business altogether, and let such programs be funded and operated at the lowest possible level of government, or better than that by the private sector. Sending money to Washington to be doled out as the politicians see fit is inefficient and far more costly in delivering the same net benefits.
