Conservatism, Katrina tolls for thee
"The fundamental tenet of conservatism is that smaller government is better. That Americans want a limited government. Do you see anyone calling for limited government after Hurricane Katrina?"
Cenk Uygur praises Rush Limbaugh for sticking to his "starve the beast" guns but issues a challenge to those with even the slightest tether to the planet Earth (or an upcoming election):
"I dare Norquist and all of the elected Republican officials who have been running on his agenda to step up and stick to their principles. I dare them to suggest that a limited government should not help the people affected by Hurricane Katrina."
"They would be run out of town Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as well they should be. Americans simply donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe in a government that small, that limited or that uncaring."
"We believe in a government that cares enough to protect its citizens and that tries to do best by them... Government is what we do when we all get together for a common purpose. And what we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do is leave one another behind. America is not that cruel. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about time conservatives understood that."(HuffPost)
