EconoPundit is competing in this week's New Blog Showcase over at Truth Laid Bear. Steve's submission notes that since FDR's administration the Democrats have built their constituency through what is (essentially) a nefarious form of bribery -- they buy our votes with our own money. They take $1 from our pockets, waste 50 cents, and spend the other 50 cents on inefficient nonsense that we wouldn't buy for ourselves if we had the choice. Oh, right, and then they tell us it's "free".
The more money the government has, the more power it has. As I've noted in the past, the solution to government corruption isn't so-called campaign finance reform; power corrupts, and the only way to reduce the corruption within the federal government is to reduce its power.
