One Party State?

Today the Big Government site released a recording of a conference call from the National Endowment for the Arts to artists, producers and many others who recieve funding from the federal government. The recording shows the blatantly political nature of the program, encouraging the artists to create art that supports the political goals of the President.

Art at the service of their government master.

Knowing this, do you suppose we could expect the NEA to be equally supportive of funding pro-liberty arts? Does anyone think this program is in any way bi-partisan after hearing this phone call?

Government agencies cannot take part in partisan politics. Yet this is clearly happening during this conference call. Read the story at the Big Government site and listen to the audio and tell me its not blatantly political. Laws are no doubt being broken, but can we expect the government to enforce laws it is breaking itself?
