Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men, governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons. And why subject it to coercion? To produce uniformity? But is uniformity of opinion desirable? No more than of face and stature.

Recession Official

Goldman Sachs has come out with their call of a recession. Though they believe it will be short lived, they believe it is coming--as we have been saying for a while, it is here.

The interesting thing about this is that they are placing the recession at the time of the presidential election, which means it will become the primary focus of the campaign. Do you believe any of the candidates will have the courage to honestly speak and tell the citizenry the government burden needs to be reduced when they are trying to buy votes with government offerings?
