True Measures: Thomas Sowell

May 28, 2009

Thomas Sowell’s Random Thoughts columns are always entertaining.  Read it here.  I like this paragraph:

Just days after Colin Powell informed us that the American people were willing to pay higher taxes in order to get government services– and that Republicans therefore needed to stop their opposition to taxes– California voters resoundingly defeated a bill to raise taxes in order to pay for the many government services in that liberal state.

Many seem to spend a good deal of time convincing us of the truth, but have trouble coping when the truth is different than they perceived.
