Cheat Seeking Missiles posted some notes taken while watching an interview with Michael Barone. Here is a good quote:

The major policy issue of this election for the GOP is that probably half the voters don't know that free markets work and government intervention doesn't. They never have had to wait in gas lines, so they have a bedrock of false assumptions, leading them to accept the idea that the government really can run health care at a lower cost than the private sector.

Some lessons keep having t0 be relearned over and over again. Why oh why can't humanity be wise enough to learn from the mistakes of others?
