We report, you decide

Today’s Downsizer Dispatch . . .::::::Subject: Sean Hannity responds, kinda, sorta::::::Last night, during “Hannity & Colmes” on FoxNews, Sean Hannity got a sour look on his face and said something like the following . . . ::::::”Ron Paul won the text messaging poll after last night’s debate, but you may be surprised to hear who our focus groups said won.” (It was John McCain.)::::::We report this, it’s up to you to decide if it’s enough that Hannity acknowledged Ron Paul’s victory in the text messaging poll. Does it make up for the fact that he implied the night before that Paul supporters gamed the poll by calling in repeatedly?

The Accountability Project

Today’s Downsizer Dispatch . . .::::::Spread the Downsize DC message to those you know. Forward this message to others.::::::Quotes of the Day:

“It has been said that the intelligence agencies have to be right 100% of the time, and the terrorists only have to get lucky once. This explanation for the devastating attacks of September 11th, simple on its face, is wrong in its value, because the 9-11 terrorists were not just lucky once. They were lucky over and over again. When you have this repeated pattern of broken protocols, broken laws, broken communication, one cannot still call it luck. If at some point, we dont look to hold the individuals accountable for not doing their jobs properly, then how can we ever expect for terrorists to not get lucky again?”:::– Mindy Kleinberg, one of the Jersey Girls (of the 9-11 Families)

“There was plenty of intelligence. That intelligence was mismanaged. Instead of addressing that mismanagement we gave the intelligence community more money, more authority, and they’re less accountable. That’s ultimately going to prove catastrophic.”:::– Mike German, former undercover anti-terrorist agent for the FBI, famed Whistleblower, and author of “Thinking Like a Terrorist”

::::::Subject: The Accountability Project::::::These are perhaps the most important insights we would like to share, with as many people as possible . . .::::::1. The institution of government tends not to work . . . because it does not have to. ::::::2. The institution of government pays no real price for failure . . . instead, it usually rewards itself for failure.::::::3. Rewarding government for failure leads to a dangerous spiral of bigger and bigger disasters. ::::::These three observations, in a nutshell, sum up the practical case for Downsizing DC — the bigger government is the harder it fails. The rest is commentary.
