Rant About the Oregonians Worst Writer: Elizabeth Hovde

There’s a reason I don’t subscribe to the Oregonian, and her name is Elizabeth Hovde. Worst two sentences of her column this morning, “Democrats,” in her words, think “that the government can and should be responsible for taking care of you. And a lot of people misguidedly believe that Americans are entitled to other people’s money.”
Wrong Liz. Democrats believe that we all pay taxes “to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…” It’s called the Constitution.
The government DOES NOT redistribute money from working people to lazy people–this is not a society of “makers” and “takers”– and as long as Republicans believe this nonsense, they’re going to lose elections.
I’ll say it again Republicans, you better get smart. Elizabeth Hovde is really dumb–that’s evidenced by her poor writing skills, and why the Oregonian publishes such a foolish hack is beyond me. The point is, if conservatives think they’re going to get ahead by slandering Democrats and the people who voted for them as lazy people looking for government hand outs, their party is going to go the way of the Whigs.
