Re: The Passion of the Blog
Three tax-and-spend ideas liberals and libertarians conceivably could agree to support:
1. Infrastructure investment - repair roads, bridges and water-sewer, plus a significant mass-transit component.
2. Homeland-security investment - ports, railroads, other vulnerable but neglected potential targets.
3. Alternative energy development - a public-private Manhattan Project on post-petroleum technologies.
All three have the potential to boost employment and wage levels, improve the environment, enhance security; and all offer ample rewards and growth opportunities in the private sector.
Are we a happy coalition yet?
