Mr. Darwin and the honorable House Speaker

Republican leadership “social Darwinists” against the poor, old, weak and sick?

From Eric Dondero:

Excerpted from the Miami Herlad, column, “Libertarian fanaticism and the debt limit” by Jose Gabliondo:

the libertarian fanaticism about the public debt… is becoming a national liability. It shows how ideas can matter in real life. The two main ideas at work here are small government and market primacy, both excellent values. The Republicans’ leadership, however, has stretched them in troubling ways.

For them, small government means social Darwinism and skepticism about all things public. So entitlement programs make them gag and then wax eloquent about rugged individualism.

No worries if you’re fit as a fiddle. Poor, old, weak, or sick? Tough.

Note – Mr. Gabliondo is a professor at Florida International Univ. a known hotbed for hard-left thinking in FL. He is also described as having advised the Treasury Dept. during the Bush administration.
