When I read Rand’s list of federal agency cuts a few weeks ago, I thought he might just be the one.
Especially since he meets all the qualifications of the NBC scab pickers and dividers who come out of the woodwork from time to time.
What I keep in mind is that if Rand were President his actions would be limited by Congress and the Courts. He’d have to move thoughtfully and nimbly in finding consensus.
It would be fairly easy to eliminate redundancies within and between departments, shrink departments and shut some down by divesting their funds and transferring those funds, with only mild limitations, to the respective states.
It would be impossible for him to radically alter America alone. He’d have to create liberal and conservative coalitions idea by idea and issue by issue. It would be very healthy for this country to have those kinds of debates.
I’m done freaking out at every nuance of a candidate. That got us Obama and a bunch of morons who thought Romney or every McCain would have been worse.
