Sen. John McCain has dropped even lower in his kow-tow to the whiners who insist that the proper role of government is to prevent bad things from happenning to likely voters.
In a new ad, Sen. McCain declares, “I won’t tolerate a system that puts you and your family at risk. Your savings, your jobs. I’ll keep ’em safe.”
Here’s the problem: That “system” is called life. Life is inherently risky; jobs and savings are never secure, and the federal government can’t change that, nor should it try.
In promising to protect Americans from the vicissitudes of life, Sen. McCain echoes the liberals who have brought us decades of economic devastation in the guise of paternalistic molly-coddling.
