"You do not examine legislation..."

Post by AJMD429 »

.

I normally don't like LBJ's politics, particularly the twisted way he stopped the incredible social and economic progress blacks were making, by introducing government into the equation, intentionally giving 'just enough' assistance to provide a facade of caring, and get the target group 'hooked' on government handouts, but simultaneously thwarting all other paths to equality.

However, this makes a good thing to remember:

"You do not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it would do and the harms it would cause if improperly administered."

"first do no harm" - gun control LAWS lead to far more deaths than 'easy access' ever could.

I despise LBJ.
His "great" society evolved into the socialist/woke mess that is killing all of us today.
I'll never be convinced that he wasn't in on the JFK murder. JFK would never have approved that fetid P.O.S....
