TUESDAY’S UPDATES 4-8-14

TUESDAYS NEW AND UPDATES YOU MAY HAVE NOT SEEN

I believe that we’re all fallen creatures and that if we believe that people can become angelic when they’re in government, we’re naïve and crazy. The bottom line is the same incentives that drive the free market system are incentives that drive people that are in politics. So yes, part of this is a reflection on our

fallen nature. Whenever you have concentrated power or concentrated wealth, it leads to temptations and leads people to do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do.

But I think, second of all, there is an ethical erosion. There’s a saying that a friend of mine used. He said when you first get to Washington, you think it’s a cesspool; and after you stay a few years, it suddenly

becomes a hot tub. And I do think there is the notion in Washington that some things that, at first, people don’t think is acceptable soon becomes acceptable. And these

are things that really would not be acceptable anywhere in the country.

It’s a reflection of declining moral values on the broader culture, but also specifically among the leadership class, that they have convinced themselves that they are entitled to play by a different set of rules. They’ve convinced themselves because they are “serving the public good” that’s its okay for them to serve themselves as well by engaging in these crony activities.
