Over at the National Review, Jonah Goldberg is issuing a wake up call to the Republican Party. Goldberg argues for a return to the traditional conservative principles of a smaller government whose powers to tax and spend are heavily restrained. Goldberg closes the article with the following indictment of Republican policies:
We have confused “low taxes” — which we all like — with limited government, which we don’t have. We expect Democrats to want the government to do everything, but at least they have the consistency to raise taxes in order to pay for it. Republicans lack similar convictions. Which is why they need to be born again.I couldn't agree more. The party I know and love seems to have lost its way in many respects. But don't expect those guys in Washington to do anything about it. It will truly take a revolution at the roots if we expect things to change. Who's with me?
