Yesterday, the elitist sycophant George Will, the national voice of the Bush and Ford families, vomited an article aimed at appealing to libertarians and limited-government conservatives. The premise around which his entire, intoxicated, argument swirled was that, “To will an end is to will the means for the end, so the Republican clamors are also for the requisite expansion of government’s size and coercive powers” (Times Herald).
What he is trying to say, foggy and bizarre as it sounds, is that in order for Republicans to demand that United States law is enforced, is to demand government expand. Why, pray-tell, does our desire to enforce the laws already voted upon by our legislatures and signed by United States Presidents, expand government? Because our government has been refusing to enforce those laws in the first place.
So, would George Will argue that our continuation of the War on Drugs is a de facto measure of “big government”? I’m quite sure I’ve never heard him make that point, but we can be certain that if we ended the war on drugs, government would get smaller wouldn’t it? And what about the police? If we just got rid of the police, we’d have smaller government. Oh, George Will must be for that too, since to will an end is to will the means for the end.
George Will is accusing conservatives of being for big government because they want laws already in existence to be enforced. Is George Will an anarchist who doesn’t believe in the rule of law? Is George Will a democratic-populist who believes in arbitrary rule of law?
No. George Will is a corporatist, big-government Republican who represents Wall Street, K Street, and the Chamber of Commerce. He is the face and tongue of the Country Club Republicans.
I hate to tell you this, Mr. Will, but your Republican Party of wealthy, self-important, nihilists who believe the American Worker exists to provide the Corporate Class with cheap labor is dead. It’s dead. The Republican voters despise you. The Democrat voters despise you. Libertarians despise you. Your reign of Crony Capitalism is quickly approaching its’ end. Prepare to encounter a new Republican Party that won’t doll out corporate welfare. No more double standards for the corporate elites who purchase your newspaper companies, who buy your politicians, and who write our laws. That’s all coming to an end.
George Will’s Republican Party is DEAD. Long Live The Republican Party!
