Modest Proposal

by John Derbyshire

If, at this point, you’re sick of all the electioneering, conservative blogger Ziel over at Your Lying Eyes has a suggestion that is at least original.

Suppose a new kind of Republican candidate bargained with Democrats — offering a Living Wage policy for an end to the Diversity Regime? Tax increases on the wealthy in exchange for a big rollback in the Federal bureaucracy? Big investments in Green technology in exchange for rolling back restrictions on oil, gas and nuclear technology? Dramatic reductions in defense spending in exchange for a dramatic cutback on immigration, a border fence, and large-scale deportations?

I’d vote for that guy . . . though the Democrats would of course renege on the bargain first chance they got.

The Corner

The one and only.
