VOTE HILLARY 2008!

So the Cato Institute e-mailed this to me.

She is such a FREAKING POLITICIAN!!!

I do desperately want her to win the nomination for the Democrats. I'm going to have a Hillary bumper sticker on each of my 4 cars.

This is yet another example of politicians having not the feigntest clue as to the basic principles of economics...or perhaps choosing not to have a clue only because it is politically advantageous.

As a HUGE fan of Bastiat, I couldn't help but laught out loud when I read that earlier today. Laughing. Right before I wanted to cry.

Her husband was a strong free-trader who liked to put the "protectionist" sheepskin on to win union votes before key elections. Observe his speech after the WTO debacle in Seattle, for example. Contrast it with the speech he made in England just after he left office. Both can be found on PBS's Commanding Heights series site.

I'll remind you too that in Bush's last State of the Union he talked free trade at one part, and "creating a level playing field" at another part just as Hillary did.
