How to Eat an Elephant
How does one eat an elephant? The answer, of course…is…one bite at a time. It is such a simple and obvious answer. If you have something massive, break it down into small
parts. This is not really wisdom or insightful. It is not particularly astute. In fact, the concept to break down a large project into smaller manageable pieces is just…well…common sense.
So if breaking down a large project into more manageable pieces is just…common sense, why is it so elusive in our federal budgeting process? Who would in a sane state of mind raise their hand and state that they believe it is a good idea to spend billions more than one takes in year…after year…after year? There is an inability to honestly challenge the spending and so it grows. It grows despite the acknowledgement of imperfection and waste by all lawmakers. We are told we must spend more than we have on more than we need; this is a destiny of a democracy high jacked by progressive socialists. If the classic liberals (those for liberty) whether Republican or Democrat do not find a way to restore our democracy; there will be no nation.
