Admittedly, this guy doesn’t like McCain…

This guy from the NY Times sure doesn’t like McCain much, but he does have a few good points. McCain did sponsor the McCain-Feingold campain finance law, but he is also a HUGE proponent of exactly the kind of regulation that got us here, namely NONE!

In my belief, government has a few basic duties:
1) National Security (Military, Environment)
2) Protection of the weak (Old, Young, Disabled)
3) Education
4) Regulation of the free market (Short-term interests are NEVER good for ANYONE, and in the end, WE aren’t the shareholders anyway.)

Anyone who runs for office is going to be elitist (by definition?), but at least lets have a realistic elitist!
