New York Post Online Edition: postopinion: "'$200 billion for Iraq, but they tell us we can't afford after-school programs for our children,' he said. '$200 billion for Iraq, but they tell us we can't afford health care for our veterans.'
There is so much wrong with this argument that it's hard to know where to begin. There's the simple matter of Kerry's bald-faced falsity. First of all, the Bush administration's No Child Left Behind Act has increased by 65 percent the amount of federal money spent on schooling. Spending on veterans' health care has grown a whopping 27 percent. "
So now we know the true value system of liberalism. Freedom from tyranny is too expensive. What is important is the welfare state.

What money we wasted in fighting Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini! We were far poorer then, but we should have put the money into school lunches and protection for the Prebble jumping mouse. And, ah, the cost in lives of money to free American slaves in the Civil War!

War is just too expensive, and isn't worth it.

Now we know.
