Is common sense having a rebirth?

August 14, 2009

From David Frum:

It’s not enough for conservatives to repudiate violence, as some are belatedly beginning to do. We have to tone down the militant and accusatory rhetoric. If Barack Obama really were a fascist, really were a Nazi, really did plan death panels to kill the old and infirm, really did contemplate overthrowing the American constitutional republic — if he were those things, somebody should shoot him. But he is not. He is an ambitious, liberal president who is spending too much money and emitting too much debt. His health-care ideas are too ambitious and his climate plans are too interventionist. The president can be met and bested on the field of reason — but only by people who are themselves reasonable.”

The danger is real folks.  It must be addressed and stopped immediately.  Americans should be debating the merits of reform.  We should not be stoking the flames of hatred as if we are barbarians.  This is an insightful, intelligent take by a well-respected journalist.  Please read more from Mr. Frum here.
