Whenever you here a politician saying that the national U.S. government needs to regulate something or make a new law or agency, remember this:
Watch on Youtube
So… The Federal government raided this Gibson plant even though the nation it was supposedly helping out said that Gibson was not breaking the law? And they confiscated all of that property without due process? And they have not charged anybody with anything at this point?
We have a word for that – stealing. Don’t think that the government unjustly taking property is any less “stealing” than if an individual does.
Are Obama’s plans to help the economy working?
“Obamanomics, also known as the New Deal, also known as Keynesian economics, is once again shown to be a failure. You can accept the theory floated by the apologists of John Maynard Keynes, that we just didn’t spend enough money, or you can accept that taking money out of an economy so you can stimulate it by putting it back in is as effective as making a lake larger by pulling water out of one side and pouring it in the other.” [Read More]
Republicans (and others) would like to see Barack Obama be a one term President.
Will this happen?
I don’t know. Maybe. Hopefully. But I do NOT feel like I can depend on American voters to throw him out based on principle. It is really a matter of luck. If people feel that the economy is improving in the short run they will re-elect Obama. If they feel that the immediate economic future is bleak they will vote for the other guy.
It’s almost a matter of luck.
Wouldn’t it be nice if voters were interested in what principles would give us LONG TERM prosperity?
And what about liberty? Is anyone really concerned about THAT?
Are we willing to keep sliding into a socialist tyranny as long as it FEELS like the economy is getting better?
If I had to choose between “the economy” being “better” or being FREE to pursue my own destiny I would choose FREEDOM.
After all of these years of blogging here I am still THIRSTY FOR FREEDOM.
