I'm with the Derb:
Pat Sajak: “I’m not suggesting that public employees should be denied the right to vote …”
Go ahead, Pat: say it. I did, back in 2003.
If you let public employees vote, what do you think they are going to vote for? For more public spending, more government jobs, higher government wages. Can you vote yourself a pay raise? No, and neither can I. Bill Bureaucrat and Pam Paperpusher can, though, and they do. Bill and Pam have no problem at all with ever-swelling public budgets, with ever-expanding public services, with the creeping socialism that is slowly throttling our liberties out of existence.
It’s an idea whose time will soon come.
