Nevertheless, in its editorial entitled "US economy: The Tea Party is a real threat to America", The Observer shows why it should go straight from the printing press to the budgie cage without anyone wasting their time actually reading it.
What we get from the Establishment Left's intellectual whores in this particular article is a trenchant defence of state power against the will of the people. As the title suggests, those who wish to stop expanding the gargantuan national debt are the threat. The fact that these people were elected with a clear mandate to do this is irrelevant to the Observer. The people exist to serve the state, not the other way around. To the Observer, government is the great benefactor and government spending the solution to everything, the more the better. Keynesianism rides again (a Pale Rider if ever there was one).
There's no reason to stop at $14.3 trillion, or stop at all, and if it all goes wrong, blame it on those impudent Tribunes of the People who tried to restrain the Neronic madness of Washington.
