I think I have figured it out. The Democrats are appealing to our yearning for perpetual childhood. Children enter the room and expect to be served–food, drink, entertainment, and light housekeeping. It is the job of parents to gradually wean them, if you will excuse the term, from this natural selfishness into responsible adults. This takes time, effort, and a little word called “No.”
The Democrats never say “No” to their constituents. If anyone falls down and scrapes his knee, the liberals are always around to pick him up, dust him off, and say, “There, there.” You want free food? Fine. Health care? Sure. Education? OK. Condoms? No problem. Of course, unlike most irresponsible parents, the Dems always get someone else to pay for their indulgence–us, the taxpayers.
