More Krazy Krugman


On July 4th, the towering intellect of the progressive left Paul Krugman, decided to write an opinion piece entitled E Pluribus Unum in that bastion of liberalism, the New York Times. It was an opportunity for Mr. Krugman to

“…wax a bit philosophical, to wonder what, exactly, we’re celebrating.”

But of course instead of reflecting upon the spirit of liberty and individualism upon which this country was founded, Mr. Krugman proceeds to spout typical liberal screeds that are becoming like broken records.

Economist John Goodman encapsulated the main points of Krugman’s piece in an article entitled A Liberal View of July 4th. Goodman expounds on the highlights of Krugman’s article.

Imagine a tribute to America that:

…Says the founding fathers were hypocrites because many of them owned slaves.

…Pretends that the phrase “all men are created equal” means equality of material condition (or at least equality of opportunity) rather than its actual meaning: equality before the law.

…Applauds our nation for declaring that “all men have rights,” but manages to mention only one of them (the right to vote), even though that one was not in the Declaration of Independence or in the original Constitution.

…Implies that anyone who believes that voters should produce the same identification we all have to produce to fly on an airplane or enter a government building is secretly intent on voter suppression.

…Spends four full paragraphs taking a swipe at Sarah Palin’s view of “real America” by pointing out that most Americans live in cities, and large cities at that, rather than in places like Mayberry.

…Spends another two paragraphs announcing that although the original colonists were mainly WASPS, “we’re no longer an Anglo-Saxon nation; we’re only around half-Protestant; and we’re increasingly nonwhite.”

…Says the most significant feature of our system is that we have survived as a “democracy,” even though the founders called it a “republic.”

Goodman then goes on to eviscerate Krugman’s comments. It’s a thing of beauty. Take a quick read.
