The promise of tomorrow

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Aug 27, 2008

 If I understand the convention rhetoric properly, the Democratic Party leadership is promising to deliver the future.  A vote for Democrats, they tell us, is a vote for the future. 

As opposed to what?

The future is coming. Unless you're contemplating suicide or watching Groundhog Day, you live with the assumption that tomorrow is going to arrive right on schedule, with or without the help of our political leaders. In 24 hours, tomorrow will have become today. It's not up for grabs; you don't have any choice in the matter. 

When Ronald Reagan said that "it's always morning in America," you knew that it was a figure of speech. With the Democrats in Denver, I'm not so sure. Are they promising to make the sun rise? 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
