"The future is dramatically conservative, in a very uncomfortable and dark way."

If entitlements and social programs are tinkered with to conform to budget realities,

it is cheap and easy to condemn them as mean or racist or some such thing within the political arena. If these programs stop abruptly because they have been purposefully grown to ridiculously unsustainable levels, those who refused to scale back well-intentioned programs when offered the chance will be responsible for the primitive violence engulfing our cities. The new and less noble beasts prowling the once-peaceful streets will be the creation of insane spending and decades of dishonest and vain politics. -- Articles: After Obama: The Coming Reign of Incredibly Small Government
