There’s going to be another Ross Perot, and this time he’s going to be younger. There’s going to be a millionaire rising out of the country somewhere and he (or she) is going to lead a movement of people who are worried about federal deficits, who are offended by the horrendous burden seniors are placing on the young and who are disgusted by a legislative process that sometimes suggests that the government has lost all capacity for self-control.
He’s going to be set off by some event like what is happening right now with the Medicare prescription drug benefit. He’s going to look at an event like that one, and he’s not only going to be worried about the country’s economic future – he’s also going to be morally offended. He’s going to sense that something fundamentally decadent is going on.
And he’s going to be right.
And unlike Perot, hopefully he’ll be sane. Anyway, read the whole thing.
