Back to realism

Despite the conservative victory in getting Miers to resign her nomination, there isn't a great deal to hope for as Peggy Noonan relates.

The culture war has been lost as Pat Buchanan assures us even though the country becomes more conservative over time since liberals don't like to breed.

We suffer as every Republic suffers its decline. Our politicians used taxes to increase their power by buying votes with entitlements and projects. Those entitlements became addictions as would-be millionaires depended on projects to build their empires and kick back to their friendly pols. The vicious cycle began and there's no stopping it except by catastrophe.

An average person can't step outside his home and swat a mosquito without breaking some law, nor make a bad joke at the water cooler without "offending" someone and being sent to re-education camp.

Lawyers and "activists" have ruined our lives, our freedoms, and there's nothing we can do about it.
