Take my money, please…

It turns out there are words to express the Liberals' contempt for Canadians! Scott Reid, Paul Martin's communications director, said in an interview today on the CBC that a child care transfer to parents instead of an institutionalized and regulated universal child care program would be a bad idea because…

As i have oft written, the left know what is best for you and you are simply to stupid or to selfish to do it for yourself. Just ask Jack Layton.

Canadians might be shocked to hear the Liberals assume that poor and working-class people would rather spend money on beer and popcorn than care for their children. However, conservatives of all stripes understand that leftists naturally assume that everyone except the anointed few have no ability to run their own lives, making regulation necessary so that government makes all the decisions for these poor, benighted folks. Rarely do liberals -- or Liberals -- come right out and say this as Reid and Duffy did today. It gives a rare honest look into the paternalistic nonsense that modern liberalism espouses, if usually a bit more smoothly than this.
