We're too broke to be this stupid

Mark Steyn sees signs that beleaguered taxpayers may finally put the brakes on wasteful government spending.  From the conclusion his of  Macleans piece "We’re too broke to be this stupid:"
The green jobs, the gay parades, the jihadist welfare queens, the Greek public sector unions, all have to be paid for by a shrinking base of contributing workers whose children and grandchildren will lead poorer and meaner lives because of the fecklessness of government. The social compact of the postwar era cannot hold. Across the developed world, a beleaguered middle class is beginning to understand that it’s no longer that rich. At some point, it will look at the sheer waste of government spending, the other shoe will drop, and it will decide that it no longer wishes to be that stupid.
John Hinderaker at Powerline believes this may be Steyn's greatest column ever.  That's quite and endorsement and makes it a must read.
