My Response to Erick Erickson’s Latest

Erick Erickson is a talk show host on Atlanta’s WSB Radio. He was the editor of RedState, a conservative political blog. Recently he started another conservative blog, The Resurgent.

Erick has made it clear to anyone who reads his columns that he does not like Donald Trump. That is an understatement. He loathes and despises Donald Trump.

How Government is Like a Wildfire

 Smokey the Bear says, “Only you can prevent wildfire.” Fire is one of the most valuable chemical reactions known to man. It can heat your home, cook your food, and power your automobile. It can also be one of the most destructive forces known to man.

If it is not tightly controlled, the same fire that provides warmth, can burn your home down with you and your loved ones inside. Fire has an insatiable appetite for oxygen and fuel. It does not care where it gets it.
