Quote of the Day 12/26/09

There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as caring and sensitive because he wants to expand the government’s charitable programs is merely saying that he is willing to do good with other people’s money. Well, who isn’t? And a voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he will do good with his own money— if a gun is held to his head.

P. J. O’Rourke – Why I Am a Conservative

I’m tired of people with their hands in my pocket telling me that they know the best way for me to spend the money I’ve earned. My deadbeat brother-in-law hasn’t done a week’s work in the 15 years I’ve know him, but I pay for his continued existence out of each paycheck I bring home. If too much CO2 is really a problem in need of an immediate solution, perhaps the politicians who allow an able-bodied jerk to receive government checks for doing nothing could do the world a favor and stop their personal production of CO2.

Just an idea.
