"This is a disaster, according to liberal politicians and commentators.

Or is it? Perhaps the real danger is that sequestration will occur, and people's lives will go on as normal. The liberal myth that all government spending is critically important will fade away. People might actually realize that we can survive and thrive with smaller government. In actuality, liberals are very concerned that their fundamental philosophy -- that prosperity is driven by government spending and government growth -- might be discredited. How can government justify confiscating and wasting trillions of dollars more than we take in every year if nobody believes these expenditures matter? Maybe those dollars will finally be recognized as pork, waste, union handouts, and paybacks to donors and friends. Maybe we really could cut the size of government by even more than the woefully inadequate 2% and we'd all be just fine.

This is the existential threat to liberalism. It's about the lie being exposed, not the paltry decrease in the increase. Hence the sound and the fury."

Government dependents scoff at the thought of being fired or laid off, their divine right to legally rob from tax makers and payers who have or create or make or take real jobs. They used to babble and prattle about how it was neat that the rest of us and the best of us should have to compete; but not cuss and fuss at the thought of them having to compete with us. They should have no trouble getting a new start, since they are so smart. Alas, they are pissed, but it will never come to this, at least until the real economy starts to collapse under the government crap. Then, they'll get the big reality bitch slap.
