More insight into how liberals' (small) minds work
That's how liberal minds' work: "Please government, give us more, regardless of how much it costs, except when we have to pay for it."
Years ago, my father and I used to wonder why American businesses don't use more freight trains. Then I studied Austrian economics and its free market principles, specifically knowledge's distribution throughout society, and entrepreneurship's basis in specialized knowledge. It then seemed so elementary that the private sector overall determined what was a better method of transporting people and goods, and only government could be so stupid to go the opposite way.
