Elizabeth Warren is right the system is rigged

Mark Twain famously remarked, “No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.” So when U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, of Massachusetts, proclaimed that “the system is rigged” in her prime-time speech at the Democratic Convention — Bill Clinton's warm-up act — it appeared that she agreed with Twain and 69 percent of Americans who believe that “politicians break the rules to help people who give them money,” according to a Rasmussen poll in August.

Before assuming that Warren blames politicians for rigging the system, Think Again. In fact, as an advocate of an assertive and growing federal government run by benevolent and enlightened policymakers, Warren is out of sync with Mark Twain, public opinion and America's founders, who feared a system rigged by powerful elites, like the British one they overturned.

Medicare is now the single largest expenditure of the federal government...and it’s going broke...and the Democrats will have none of that;

Social Security is going broke...and the Democrats will have none of that;

Meidcaid is bankrupting both the federal government and every state government in the land...and the Democrats will have none of it;

In less than four years, Mr. Obama has cranked up the national debt by more than 50%...and the Democrats will have none of it.

If Mrs. Warren is so dadgummed smart, why doesn’t she talk about how to fix these things?

Everyone in America can do something to make their lives better. But now many chose to just let the government do it.

Thanks a lot, LBJ.
