Glenn Beck has decided that the main issue the opposition to big government should focus on is corruption.
All the special interest handouts in the stimulus, health care, and cap-and-trade bills aren’t there to build a better nation. They are there to build the framework of these corrupt “organizations” like ACORN and SEIU to fundamentally transform America.
And if we allow these bills to go through, an already enormous problem will spread like a disease.
We need to kill the corruption before we do anything else.
Glenn Beck is wrong and his campaign to end corruption will accomplish nothing for America. He is pursuing this because his crusades against Van Jones and ACORN have gotten him publicity and helped his ratings.
There has always been corruption in government and there always will be. Corruption is nowhere near the fundamental problem in America today.
Imagine if Glenn Beck’s crusade somehow miraculously succeeded and all corruption was vanquished. What would we have? A squeaky clean welfare state. None of our problems would be solved. The American people would not be a bit more free. Who knows, we might even be less free because businessmen depend on corrupt politicians allowing them to produce in peace. If those politicians don’t get their palms greased, they might actually enforce all the regulations in existence and bring this country to a screeching halt.
Glenn Beck is wasting his time and ours. It reminds us that a philosophical change in America would bring us new politicians — and new journalists and new cable TV personalities.
