It’s the question for the 2012 election. Do you favor more government, or less? People on the political left don’t trust us, so they always favor more government, more red tape, and more wasteful programs. Perhaps another way to say it is that they like the slow-moving pace of the institution. As Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard put it, they place their faith in regulators rather than risk-takers. Conservatives lean toward a smaller federal bureaucracy because they believe in people power. We think that you can make a better decision for your family than the system can.
This accomplished woman addressed an audience at CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Committee), on February 10, 2012. She said that only in America is it possible to go from secretary to CEO. She knows, because she did it! She used the power of the individual to succeed, including starting a small business. Instead of dividing us – rich vs. poor, young vs. old, etc., Ms. Fiorina encouraged us at CPAC.
Carly Fiorina reminded us that “ANYTHING can be accessed at ANYTIME by ANYONE from ANYWHERE… For the first time in human history, anyone can know anything.” It reveals a true power shift - away from big – to small. Decentralized authority is the Internet, and it shows us that conservative ideas work best.
I saved the best part for last. She said, “If you looked up the word PROGRESSIVE in the dictionary, you would read words like change, forward motion, advancing. If you look up CONSERVATIVE, you will read opposed to change.” As I point out in my book, and here’s the punch line: She said, “The 21st century and the age of technology have turned these definitions on their head.” Exactly. Yesssss! While liberals claim to support the working class, the 99% of us, progressives actually fight for the status quo, officialdom, the Post Office, and City Hall - while conservatives push to limit government and transfer power to the little guy!
