RealClearPolitics - A Crossroads Election

Thomas Sowell on the election: "For all its sweeping and scary provisions, ObamaCare is not nearly as important as the way it was passed. If legislation can become laws passed without either the public or the Congress knowing what is in those laws, then the fundamental principle of a free, self-governing people is completely undermined."

I couldn't agree more. Look, I don't like ObamaCare, but if Congress has passed the bill after a reasonable debate, after actually writing the bill and reading the bill, there would far less hate of the bill--partially because if everyone in America understood the bill I doubt it would have passed.

The election is about government and trust and I don't think America trust their government because they can't identify with their government.
