If New Jersey and Louisiana can do it, why can’t Kentucky? Why can’t we wake up to the costs of corruption in our government, that is.
New Jersey is closer to the edge of self-imposed bankruptcy than we are. Louisiana needed a natural disaster of biblical proportions. Both needed some kind of catalyst to open their eyes to the damage their abusive political machines were doing to the many to benefit the few. What will Kentucky’s be?
Kentucky taxpayers could save themselves a fortune by snapping to attention before the wolf gets to the door. Right now, he is at least in the driveway.
Kentucky’s unaccountable education bureaucracy spends money with insufficient oversight and fixes it’s own report card every year. Kentucky’s politicians increase spending on themselves and borrow by the billions when your money runs out. Secrecy in Frankfort is so entrenched, the media watchdogs can’t even be bothered to push for more openness. “Needy” citizens have too little accountability for their bottomless bowls of entitlements. And “economic development” bureaucrats pick business winners and losers with money they take from those who they prefer to be on the losing end.
What do you think it will take to wake up Kentuckians and inspire them to rip control of their government away from the grubbing scoundrels who call the shots?
I think it might be abuse of taxpayer-provided and taxpayer-purchased gasoline that really starts the ball rolling. Sure hope so.
