A new kind of faith

Many say this election year is shaping up to make incumbents an "endangered species." This sentiment is not hard to understand.

The 111th Congress has approved massive spending packages and doubled the federal deficit. Congress also passed a form of government-run health care that is unique in our nation's 234-year history.

The majority members have perfected the ability to vote for landmark legislation without holding hearings or even reading it. In some cases, the legislation had not even been written yet - they couldn't read it if they wanted to.

A new kind of "faith" abounds, it seems - in politics. We now have government based on the principle of "Trust us; we know what is best." One wonders what troublesome and harmful legislative provisions - as yet unrevealed - will arise from the law
