an ideologue treason

Mark Anderson:

  1. The last administration spent more money from current funds, and indebted us more deeply into the future, than any in history.
  2. Called “starve the beast,” it is a much-discussed strategy of spending the US into oblivion while in power, so that the following party has no dry ammunition with which to carry out its programs.
  3. Carried further, it suggests a gluttony of spending while in power, so that services, and the government itself, is forced into contraction.
