The Death Penalty – Ta-Nehisi Coates

The Death Penalty – Ta-Nehisi Coates:

” This is all a long way of saying that some conservatives don’t hate big government, they simply want big government to work strictly for them.”

(Via Ta-Nehisi Coates.)

A better way to say it might be, “Big Government to conservatives is any part of government that doesn’t work strictly for them.” How else do you justify a yearly, as in ongoing, DoD budget of $800B while decrying a temporary stimulus package of the same size? Utter discredit.
