Why liberal compassion is an inane basis for political action

By Kyle Smith

There is always inequity in life,” an American president declared. ”Life is unfair.”

The president was John F. Kennedy, speaking in 1962.
Today it’s hard to picture even a losing Republican nominee for president speaking so brusquely about the cosmic injustice of it all.
Where life deals a low blow, shouldn’t government step in to call a penalty?

Today, compassion fuels the American political bus. No one can expect to lead the country without proving that he or she feels our pain.
