Here is what is wrong with the RNC

This is a quote from John McCain from the interview (starts at 7:30 in the video):

"The government can act with the right kind of legislators to make sure the free market is in the business."

Isn't government intervention the OPPOSITE of a free market? How about the government enforce contracts and protect liberty, then let the chips fall where they may in the free market economy. Government intervention is what happened when TARP was passed under Bush (that McCain voted for), just as there was intervention when Solyndra was given subsidies and GM was bailed out under Obama.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis
