Jindal hits a nerve with speech before GOP governors
According to Salon, the San Francisco based webzine, Jindal gave a "tedious speech" before the Republican National Committee Thursday night and is a man who, as an Indian-American, "thinks he can help his party avoid demographic extinction as the official white party in a country that will soon be mostly non-white." Moreover, his "post racial" offering boils down to nothing more than "screw the poor, whatever their color." Salon finally dismisses Jindal's speech as a lame attempt to say "nice things about voters who aren't white" but will do nothing different from the old white men who run their party.
No analysis of Jindal's resizing government remarks which are pretty powerful.
This means re-thinking nearly every social program in Washington. Very few of them work in my view, and frankly, the one-size fits all crowd has had its chance.
If any rational human being were to create our government anew, today, from a blank piece of paper - we would have about one fourth of the buildings we have in Washington and about half of the government workers.
If we created American government today, we would not dream of taking money out of people's pockets, sending it all the way to Washington, handing it over to politicians and bureaucrats to staple thousands of pages of artificial and political instructions to it, then wear that money out by grinding it through the engine of bureaucratic friction...and then sending what's left of it back to the states, where it all started, in order to grow the American economy.
And salon's analysis? Just motivist pap about racial demographics. What better endorsement that Jindal is hitting a nerve?
