Sowell Bats .999
Hey, gonna miss a pitch sometime! Taking cheap shots at Ted Cruz wasn’t a great idea.
Liberty Belle Maggie has the gory details of Dr. Sowell’s latest at-bat. She called a strike-out. We agree.
Dr. Thomas Sowell, the great economist and political philosopher, says that Senator Ted Cruz is “looking out for himself,” and it’s not good for the only Party that can fix Obama’s disasters.
We can’t improve upon Maggie’s notes. PRTWT.
One assumption underlying Sowell’s view is that the Republican Party is the source of the solution. I find the naïveté rather shocking. The solution is in the commitment to same from an electorate dedicated to promoting Libertarian-Conservative values (or Classical-Liberal, if you please.) This generation of Republican leaders and legislators is so far from there as to be ideologically indistinguishable from their statist “opponents” across the aisle.
“Economics is the study of the use of scarce resources that have alternative uses.” Ted Cruz is merely tapping into a huge, unmet market demand. Economist Sowell appears to have missed that small point, too.
Hey, on the up side, that means he’s batting .999!
