Unintended Consequences

Time after time with Liberal policies, we see they have unintended consequences, most of which are negative. I just came across this piece on the unintended consequences of the idiotic “Cash for Clunkers” that didn’t do anything to help the economy but help those who were already planning to, and had the means to, buy a new car while spending $3 billion dollars we didn’t have.

John Stossel had a great piece out today as well, documenting how even the American With Disabilities Act has harmed those it was intended to help. It just goes to show that even if you have the best intentions in mind, things can go wrong. Republicans voted for this as well, though I’m sure there would have been more opposition to this if anyone had anticipated what was going to happen. More often than not though it tends to be Liberal policies.

I’m sure I have more examples of this in my extensive bookmark collection and I’ll post them to provide more examples of how Liberal policies, or just government policies in general, actually do more harm than good. Government regulation does more harm than good. Our nanny state control is destroying our freedom, the freedom that allowed us to get where we are today. They never used to have idiotic rules for everything like we have today and we did just fine because we are a smart, determined people with common sense. If there is an issue, we’ll solve it and those who don’t or aren’t willing to make changes are only hurting themselves. The free market or the court of public opinion will make the changes we need (ie things like the Americans with Disabilities Act). Don’t get me wrong, there are times when the government does have to act but most times they don’t need to. We as a people can do things better. It’ll take a while for me to post these other examples since I’m in the process of moving but I’ll do it as soon as I can because I want to spread the word that just because something “sounds good” or is “heartfelt” that it’s actually a good idea but rather a bad idea. Seeing things like this continues to show me that Liberals are all heart and no brain, that they do nothing besides appeal to emotion rather than logic and reason.
