Sounds right

haterSounds right, so it must be right.

Are we too quick to accept ridiculous ideas because they sound good? Take “balanced budget,” for example. Balancing the Federal budget may be a good idea when times are good, but it is a terrible idea when times are tough. The idea that a balanced Federal budget, unlike a local government budget or a family budget, is always desirable is patently false.

Sounds right, so it must be right.

  1. Conservative.
  2. Job-killing regulations.
  3. Keeping out immigrants means more jobs for us.
  4. Our taxes are too high.
  5. Job killing trade agreements.
  6. Balanced budget.
  7. Disruption.
  8. Strict interpretation, original meaning, textual analysis.
  9. Life.
  10. Right to work.
  11. Reed’s opponents are “haters.”
  12. MAGA.

Sounds right, so it must be right? More likely not. What did I miss?
