In his weekly newsletter, Georgia Congressman Lynn A. Westmoreland (3rd District) has this nice little dandy worthy of a quote:
When the government picks winners and losers, everybody loses. We have to restore the power of capital in capitalism. Businesses must succeed on their own – or be allowed to fail. Instead of a permanent bailout fund, we need a plan that permanently ends the Bailout Era and restores personal responsibility in our free markets.
There are plenty of folks on the left who would love to see the concept of personal responsibility go the way of prayer in schools, Christmas tree lightings, and mangers on the steps of our courthouses and other government buildings.
