NY Times: "Young, Liberal and Open to Big Government"

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/11/us/politics/in-montana-young-liberal-and-open-to-big-government.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

MISSOULA, Mont. — This funky college town, nestled along two rivers where five mountain ranges converge, has long been a liberal pocket, an isolated speck of blue in a deeply red state. Now Montana is electing more politicians who lean that way, thanks to a different-minded generation of young voters animated by the recession and social issues.

3. The Democrats have the right idea by asking

“My analysis has been for a while that it’s going to come down to not whether the government should address certain problems, but how,” said Ruy Teixeira, a senior fellow at the left-leaning Center for American Progress in Washington. “We’ll shift from, ‘Does government even have a role?’ to ‘Given that government needs to play a role, what’s the best way of doing that?’ ”


Instead of insisting the government needs to be small (inefficient) and stay out of the way (let private interests run roughshod).

Logic would dictate that a government serves a purpose, else, why not just have anarchy?

4. These Kids Have Traveled A Lot

most of my son's friends have been somewhere else in the world where .... socialism exists.

My kid was in Canada skiing and broke his collar bone...they treated him like a prince and we only paid for the pain meds.
