Welcome to The Goatherder.

 

The Goatherder is dedicated to the exploration and discussion of the positive role that government can play in a democratic society and capitalistic economy.   Quite simply, I believe that government must play a significant role in our economy. The institutions of our civil society enable, enhance and multiply the rewards of our capitalistic economy. They are what make the difference between the riches of our American self-made man (or woman) and the lonely, impoverished goat herder.

 

This site is unabashedly opposed to the no-tax, no-government agenda of the Radical Right, and to the election of its ring wraiths, such as George W. Bush. It is pro-capitalism, pro-liberal democracy and pro-activist government. AND WE WILL CONTINUE SPEAKING OUT, EVEN AFTER OUR TEMPORARY SET-BACK OF NOVEMBER 2, 2004

 

Please read some of the materials I have presented and join in the discussion.

Read The Goatherder and the Self-Made Man this site's signature essay.
 
"And I see, Dick, from the papers, that you are better off than you were eight years ago"
"And I can assure you, Joe, that government had nothing to do with it."
 
Forget the billions in government contracts, Dick Cheney had it wrong at a much more fundamental level. Government enabled his success.
