Lefty Relics Gathering Dust

David Boaz writes at Cato @ Liberty:.

So the Associate Publisher of The Nation sends me an email asking me, “Have any lefty relics gathering dust in your closet?” They’re having a fundraising auction.

As it happens, I do have some lefty relics I’d like to get rid of. I have:

  • Keynesianism
  • Wilsonianisn
  • Nationalized health care
  • Government Motors
  • The idea that the Constitution grants “plenary” powers to the federal government
  • The War on Poverty
  • Racial preferences

And by the way, when National Review asks me for conservative relics, I’ll have a list for them, too.
