Government doesn't work, so we need more of it
We were as surprised as anyone else when we heard the responses from Democrats after the Katrina hurricane disaster. After a natural disaster struck, government at all levels was not able to respond to meet the demands of the public. This is not surprising to those of us who believe that government--on its face--is not competent to respond to every human suffering and ailment. Thus, it was rather risible to hear Democrats essentially saying, the government was not able to help the people in New Orleans, and thus, we need more big government to be even less competent in the future.
