The Tyranny of Dead Ideas - Matt Miller (Click for pdf doc)

American Enterprise Institute Event: Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Are Conservatives in the Grip of Dead Ideas?

In his new book, The Tyranny of Dead Ideas: Letting Go of the Old Ways of Thinking to Unleash a New Prosperity (Times Books, 2009), Matt Miller argues that political and business leaders have failed to prepare the United States for economic crises because they are slaves to dead ideas. These dead ideas include the notions that higher taxes hurt the economy, that free trade is always good, and that money follows merit. Miller also offers up a catalogue of "tomorrow's destined ideas" that he believes will eventually replace their dead counterparts.

As for your post on my blog, you seriously are mislead. You questioned why I voted for Obama. I can assure you, I didn't vote for that man. Certainly, not based on the color of his skin but by the context of his character which was severely lacking in my opinion. It continues to be my opinion as he focuses on killing unborn children and changing our society into a socialism. McCain/Palin was on the back of my bumper. Too bad you didn't really understand the issues and not succumb to the mind control of our liberal media by voting for Obama. Or maybe you did understand the issues and are really of the new lack of morals mentality that our MTV generation has created. Good luck in your endeavors. Thank god for the freedom of speech we are given to disagree with others.

Elisa,
In your post you stated that Obama had betrayed your trust and mislead you. A reasonable person would assume that you had supported Obama's position on a woman's choice.

I hope you meant that McCain/Palin were on the front of your bumper so that your sentiments were clear to all who cared to know.

As for Obama's "socialism," I presume you prefer Alaska socialism and McCain's Keating financial policy.
