A conservative Christmas wish

Russ Harding of Michigan's Mackinac Center for Public Policy is wishing for less government this Christmas:

My perfect Christmas gift would be for the political class to stop playing Santa Claus. I do not want politicians to promise me an endless bag of goodies that cannot be paid for now or even by the next generation. A few items that could fill my Christmas stocking:

  • A government that stops telling me what kind of light bulbs to use, what kind of car I must drive, and how much water I can use to flush the toilet.
  • A government that stops giving my tax dollars to millionaire film makers and green causes such as solar companies and battery makers, most of whom go bankrupt.
  • A government that stops printing more money, calling it quantitative easing.
  • A government that actually passes a budget rather than an endless string of temporary deals which kick the can down the road.
  • A government that stops accumulating debt that cannot be paid back even by future generations.

Midterm elections are coming up.  Can Santa deliver this year?
