9/11 Ten Years Later

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer: Excerpt:
It is tempting to say that it is impossible to imagine the federal government being more mismanaged - in foreign policy, domestic policy, and civil liberties - than it has in the past ten years.

But some perspective is in order. The 1964-74 LBJ-Nixon years sent 50,000 Americans to die in Vietnam, their anti-poverty programs led to an explosion of crime and family breakdown, and Medicare helped put America on a fiscally unsustainable path. Before that, the big-spending, pro-regulation methods of Hoover and FDR kept a generation mired in poverty.
