do you feel safer?

I just started reading Jon Taplin's blog but I am already impressed:

"The Republicans pretend their are no trade-offs. The Irony of the twin poles of the neoconservative philosophy first elucidated by Irving Kristol in The Public Interest in 1965, is that still today the fiscal insanity of the task is not generally realized. Here’s the Gospel according to Irving:

In domestic affairs the national government should shrink (by cutting taxes and business regulations)
In foreign affairs the government should grow (by becoming the world’s sole military superpower).

If insanity has been defined as the ability to hold two opposing ideas in your mind simultaneously, than this must be exhibit A. "
