A Lesson In Big Government Failure

by Joseph Haas - December 26th, 2010 - The American Thinker

Kudzu can be seen in a larger context when examining the New Deal. Roosevelt's aggressive domestic policy and massive expansion of the federal government are still with us today. The bureaucracy created under the New Deal is continually spreading, tightening its grip, and smothering the American people -- just like kudzu's effect on the environment. There is little to no political will to curb and fix Depression-era policies like entitlement programs (and kudzu). One day, America will wake up to find herself smothering -- not under the green leaves of a vine, but under the red tape of the same government who created the kudzu crisis.

If this story was better known it would be handy to call the progressives that engendered the disasters, both disasters, "Kudzu Democrats." It would be a great analogy. Unfortunately it will probably never be understood because ignorance of the consequences and accountability for the failures are still not sufficiently well known by the voters whose lives are damaged.
