The 2010 GOP Pledge

September 24th, 2010 by Adam G.

The 2010 GOP Pledge is gassy and timid. But that is not the only reason I like it.

The GOP pledges that no new regulation costing the country more than $100 million a year shall go into effect until approved by Congress. This is also pretty timid, but its a good start.

Not that Congress is any better than the regulators, but at least Congress is a creature of the Constitution.

I had to think about this for awhile to see where you were coming from.

There are a few branches of government we wish to be bold and decisive; mostly the military and some law enforcement, both of which must be bold and decisive to be effective in their role of maintaining order.

But, yeah. Just about every other branch of government is better when it is gassy and timid. Timid people don’t tend to abuse power. Gassy resolutions honoring Radio Shack do little harm.

Vader,
in truth I was just being sarcastic. Your explanation is, however, better, and I adopt it forthwith.

I agree with Vader. The less Congress does from one session to another, the better. It’s constantly trying to fix things that really screws things up.
