THERE’S NOTHING HOLDING THE JOINT UP, Mark Steyn writes:
So Washington cannot be saved from itself. For the moment, tend to your state, and county, town and school district, and demonstrate the virtues of responsible self-government at the local level. Americans as a whole have joined the rest of the Western world in voting themselves a lifestyle they are not willing to earn. The longer any course correction is postponed the more convulsive it will be. Alas, on Tuesday, the electorate opted to defer it for another four years. I doubt they’ll get that long.
Plus, Steyn reminds readers that he’s the author of “After America — or, as Dennis Miller retitled it on the radio the other day, Wednesday.“
