20/20 Hindsight

Eli looks at the lessons of the last eight years. Here's a few things the the Bush administration taught us.
o Tax cuts for the rich do not trickle down to everyone else, nor stimulate the economy, nor increase tax revenue.

o Unfettered free trade does not lead to jobs and prosperity.

o The free market is not a substitute for regulation and oversight.

o Pre-emptive war is not cheap or easy, and does not make the world safer, more stable, or more democratic.

o A weak, ineffectual bureaucracy is not a good thing. Nor is an all-powerful executive.

o "Voter fraud" is a hoax. Vote suppression isn't.

o "Compassionate conservative" is an oxymoron.

I prefer "moron," The other word is too complicated for my neural net.
