Here’s what Goldberg’s argument boils down to: Congress is filled with statists, both conservatives and liberals. They all love big government. They all love the warfare-welfare state. They are incorrigible. They love America’s vast military empire, the invasions and occupations and endless war, torture, infringements on civil liberties, military detention, socialism, interventionism, the drug war, and so forth.
Therefore, Goldberg’s argument apparently goes, the only thing American voters can do is elect a statist to the presidency—that is, a person who can work with Congress—which, it seems to me, guarantees even more statism!
So, if people are realizing that the big-government direction in which conservatives and liberals have taken our nation is wrong and destructive, they’re apparently supposed to reject the candidate who reflects their views and instead vote for a candidate that does not reflect their views.
That’s ridiculous. Maybe even whacko or loony.
