I have been really busy in the last 2 days, thus missed El Collectivista Presidente's Hugo Chavez-esque rant against the watered down, somewhat-toothless, "Pledge to America" released recently.
Instead of dissecting the hair-pulling minutiae of El Collectivista Presidente's all-too-predictable attack, I point you to a fascinating debate between Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush in 1980.
The contrast between the two couldn't be any more bold. And while GHB's statism is nowhere near Obama's, it proves that statists have always been in positions of power in the Republican party. Reagan states his case and does it well.
Although I disagree with tax cuts without corresponding spending cuts as well. We need to drastically shrink the Leviathan and cut taxes.
Hat-tip goes to Last Tradition. Check out all of the great stuff he has up here. Cross posted to LCR.
