I think, if you research it, that progressive ideas from both sides of the isle have brought us to this point. Ideas propagated and implemented in various forms over the past 80 years or so. I suspect that when one finds themselves on the wrong road it might be a good idea to retrace the steps taken and get back on the right track.

Being president was always easy for Barack Obama.

But delivering on the big words has been considerably tougher.

In part, Obama’s troubles stem from the rigidity of the left’s broken ideas. They admit of no compromise. Consequently, Obama has subsumed his whole personality into an unworkable progressive ideology that was dead outside of academia- and news rooms- until he resurrected it.

It’s the idea that a benign government of technocrats and academics can engineer near perfect justice at the trivial cost in liberty and money to most of us. 

Everyone gets a mortgage, even though that’s an idea...
