As usual, I am in violent agreement with Mr. Stossel. Here's a Noah Webster quote I saw recently ... "In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate -- look to his character. ... When a citizen gives his suffrage to a man of known immorality he abuses his trust; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country."
If there were any doubt that Obama is a narcissist and doesn't understand the US Constitution nor the American culture, the response to the election demonstrates it.
Since the nature of man is such that it is naive to believe elected representatives will act altruistically rather than pure self-interest and selfishness, there are two Constitutional changes that probably should have been in the original form: - term limits for elected representatives and senior bureaucrats, and - prevention of a full time sitting legislature. From our collective experience, we have seen that the longer a person sits in a government office then the more mischief s/he gets into.
Little did the band Greenday realize when they wrote "American Idiot", they were actually talking about Ezra Klein! :-)

Somebody had to say this. Thanks, KT!
JFK -- I like your reference to '1984'. Our language *IS* fast becoming Newspeak.

Politically correct phrases are nicely aligned with Eric Blair's (aka George Orwell's) Newspeak from the novel '1984'. We seem to be in the phase of language evolution where AmProg (American Progressivism - much like 'IngSoc' [English Socialism]) is attempting to construct B vocabulary words from A vocabulary words (according to Newspeak dictionary rules). It is all done with purpose. :-o

Why You Shouldn’t Vote

This seems like an argument against voting one's conscience (the seemingly perpetual "vote for the lesser of two evils" argument). It has served the country so well, so far, I guess those agreeing with the author will spur others onward and to status quo. "Always vote for principle. Though you may vote alone, you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." — President John Quincy Adams
His fans remind me of Shakespeare (Richard III) - a fabulous tale of treachery and deceit. "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this son of ...."
