The Motivation Behind Democratic Policies

Nothing to do with freedom

John Hinderaker, noting that Democrats have blocked consideration of the free trade agreement between the U.S. and Colombia, had this observation:
With the Democrats' policies on taxes, trade and energy, it is not easy to see how they could damage our economy more if that were their purpose.
It is their purpose. Since President Clinton, against fierce Democratic opposition, pushed NAFTA through Congress, I can't think of a single Democratic initiative on taxes, energy or trade which would have been beneficial for our country. Quite the contraty. Powerline's Paul Mirengoff observes:
The truth is that most major Republican ideas weren't tried because the Democrats blocked them.
Democrats frequently refer to themselves as "progressives" when in reality they are "obstructers" of progress.
