If Only This Would Happen Here

Here’s a perfect example of how to address economic problems:

King Abdullah II of Jordan fired his government in a surprise move on Tuesday, in the face of a wave of demands of public accountability sweeping the Arab world and bringing throngs of demonstrators to the streets of Egypt.  (HT Tyler)

Talk about laissez-faire.  We could use that sort of thing in America.  Just imagine how much we could accomplish if we didn’t have bureaucrats telling us no.  Imagine how much we could accomplish if we could keep what was rightfully ours without having to bailout banks and pay people who aren’t working.  And imagine how much happier we would be with our new-found freedom.

Too bad the American electorate doesn’t have the spine to demand this.
