Soiled and Incompetent Hands of the Tribunes
 
“The spoils system in civil service is an unavoidable conclusion of democratic premises regarding political equality. The idea that each man is as good as the next leads to rotation in administrative office and foments stubborn popular opposition to the development of a merit system.  This opens the way to the establishment of a self-perpetuating political oligarchy, since the political organizer is paid for his services in the coinage of government jobs.
 
The folly and danger of schemes to promote social welfare by state action must now be clear. The complexity and interdependence of society make it necessary that the formulators of such programs possess extraordinary wisdom and insight, combined with a single-minded desire to serve the public good.
 
It is doubtful whether anyone, at the present stage of inquiry, knows enough to fulfill this requirement; it is certain that state officials in a democracy, elected on a haphazard basis by an ill-informed electorate or appointed as a reward for political services., could not, with the best intentions, remotely approach this ideal. 
 
And devotion to the public welfare is an even scarcer commodity in democratic government. The drive for power among conflicting interests tends always to convert the state into a prize to be won by the dominant class; meanwhile, issues of public policy are decided, not on the basis of their merits, but in accordance with the pressures brought to bear on the tribunes of the people.  To entrust the adjustment of the delicate social mechanism to such soiled and incompetent hands would be madness.”
 
(American Conservatism, In the Age of Enterprise, 1865-1910, Robert Green McCloskey, Harper, 1951, pp. 59-60)

"Human rights now encompass things such as wealth redistribution, protecting transsexuals from hostile glares, and banning all Confederate symbols—which a black student once complained violated her human rights when she espied a Civil War history book on my office shelf."

HOW TO CONTACT CONGRESS

The right to "petition" government in this 
manner was secured by our Founding Fathers.  
As Sam Adams famously wrote, "It does not 
require a majority to prevail, but rather 
an irate, tireless minority keen to set 
brush fires in people's minds."  What the 
limited-government movement needs are a 
few good pyromaniacs.

If you want to contact Congress on any 
issue, you can do so toll-free by calling 
(800) 862-5530.  
When the Capitol operator answers, simply 
ask to be connected to a particular 
congressman or senator.
