The "Lack of Civility"

Check out my latest at The Partial Observer. Excerpt:
But this "lack of civility" did not originate just with the Right, even though people whose memory spans go only as far back as the rise of Rush Limbaugh may think so. Those who criticized absolute Presidential and bureaucratic power over the economy and domestic policy have, since FDR, been smeared as uncompassionate supporters of the "free market" who are determined to starve children to death.

In every instance I see since FDR, those who promoted federal Statism - the concentration of power in the federal government and especially the Presidency - has been the first to smear opponents.
