The Bright Side of One Party States

On Con­ser­v­a­tively Speak­ing and to a lesser degree on DaT­e­chGuy on DaRa­dio we speak about the one party rule in Mass­a­chu­setts and all the trou­ble it causes us.

Mass­a­chu­setts and Cal­i­for­nia may be one side of the coin but the NYT talks a bit about the other side of the equa­tion:

Come Jan­u­ary, more than two-​thirds of the states will be under single-​party con­trol, rais­ing the prospect that bold par­ti­san agen­das — on both ends of the polit­i­cal spec­trum — will flour­ish over the next cou­ple of years.

There are risks in such a polit­i­cal situation:

Some politi­cians are mind­ful that one-​party con­trol car­ries with it one-​party blame — and a risk that a par­tic­u­larly par­ti­san agenda will even­tu­ally irk vot­ers and lead to a rever­sal in the next election.

But there is also a reward in a par­tic­u­lar sense.

I am a con­ser­v­a­tive because I believe it is not only morally right but it pro­duces the great­est good for the great­est num­ber eco­nom­i­cally and socially and for the future of my chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. Let’s work under the assump­tion that our friends on the left believe the same (we’ll pause for our con­ser­v­a­tive read­ers who might have been drink­ing to wipe off their key­boards after spit­ting it out).

Pre­vi­ously we have seen the effects of lib­eral rule in cities like Detroit but now we will be able to actu­ally com­pare the results between the blue and red state as a whole.

In 2016 we will have years of data to see what states have made it and what states have not, what states have employ­ment and what states do not, and more impor­tantly with four years of Barack Obama ahead of us, we will see which states become places where peo­ple are going to want to live and which states are not.

I’m nearly 50, it’s my inten­tion to live and die right where I am, but by the end of the Obama years both of my sons will be out of col­lege and we will see where they will decide to go to make a future for themselves.

May the best states and ideas win. The only ques­tion is, will the media report it?

On Conservatively Speaking and to a lesser degree on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we speak about the one party rule in Massachusetts and all the trouble it causes us.

Massachusetts and California may be one side of the coin but the NYT talks a bit about the other side of the equation:

Come January, more than two-thirds of the states will be under single-party control, raising the prospect that bold partisan agendas — on both ends of the political spectrum — will flourish over the next couple of years.

There are risks in such a political situation:

Some politicians are mindful that one-party control carries with it one-party blame — and a risk that a particularly partisan agenda will eventually irk voters and lead to a reversal in the next election.

But there is also a reward in a particular sense.

I am a conservative because I believe it is not only morally right but it produces the greatest good for the greatest number economically and socially and for the future of my children and grandchildren. Let’s work under the assumption that our friends on the left believe the same (we’ll pause for our conservative readers who might have been drinking to wipe off their keyboards after spitting it out).

Previously we have seen the effects of liberal rule in cities like Detroit but now we will be able to actually compare the results between the blue and red state as a whole.

In 2016 we will have years of data to see what states have made it and what states have not, what states have employment and what states do not, and more importantly with four years of Barack Obama ahead of us, we will see which states become places where people are going to want to live and which states are not.

I’m nearly 50, it’s my intention to live and die right where I am, but by the end of the Obama years both of my sons will be out of college and we will see where they will decide to go to make a future for themselves.

May the best states and ideas win. The only question is, will the media report it?
