Then came Liberalism. At the start of World War Two England was the wealthiest country in the world. It’s colonies even prospered relative to other undeveloped economies. By 1950 England’s apparently never-ending slide into economic irrelevance was well underway, and except for a decade after Mrs. Thatcher, it continues at an increasing pace.
Liberals believe that by taking an ever larger percentage of wealth from those who earn it and giving it to those who do nothing a nation can be made to prosper. This has never occurred anywhere or anytime in history. The change causes those who create wealth to husband more of that wealth in investments that benefit only them. This because intelligent people quickly learn that liberals view the creators of wealth only as ATMs. So to keep their live style they use more money to create more money relatively quickly to replace what is stolen by the government. This greatly slows the pace of economic expansion and the creation of more jobs (and thus wealth) for those who will work.
I would guess if one were able to thread their way through the bookkeeping chaos that is our government, one would find that somewhere near 80% of this government’s revenues, which are to the penny, stolen from those who work, are given to those who won’t. No strings. Just given to them. This vast amount of wealth that is given away every year has spawned huge industries, not subject to taxation. For one example the vast drug industry paid for by money stolen from workers and given to the shiftless. In a very few years the taxes from this money directed into the licit private industry would wipe out the national debt.
Liberal theory is just that which it pays for: drugs for the
masses of the ignorant and lazy.

Being a realtor in America’s Chernobyl, Michigan, I have been forced to reassess my activities and plans endlessly as the radiation seeps through what’s left of economics here. Many of my former colleagues were all about pressuring clients to “close the sale”. Many of those colleagues are now gone. I found that folks are easier to close when they get what they want, at acceptable terms.
The virtuous have gone into hibernation, or left the state,
looking for a better climate in which to honestly deal with other
honest people. Washington, being in control of the currency, is
not an honest broker, and the honest know it.

I wish to thank you very much for writing a frank and
truthful perspective on what ails our country/world and humanity.
I have shared it with family, friends and colleagues. Warmest

Re: Ralph R. Reiland’s Isn’t It Reich?
It’s the very old argument of “the individual versus the crowd” that Reich makes. First off, he assumes his “high status” position as an “intellectual” who should be heard. Next, he grabs for a power position from which he gives forth his commands as one of the leaders.
God, I never thought the commies would show up dressed as these idiots! But here they are, right in front of us, sounding so damn smart and so very right in every pronouncement uttered!
Eric Hoffer is smiling, that’s for sure! Me, well…I’m very
worried because these clowns now have more power than they should
have plus I sense more useful idiots are available for them to
hide behind while making such decisions.

Re: Tom Bethell’s A Culture Mired in Callousness:
Tom Bethell quotes Bishop Martin Holley: “As an African American, I am saddened by evidence that black women continue to be targeted by the abortion industry. The loss of any child from abortion is a tragedy, but we must ask: Why are minority children being aborted at such disproportionate rates?”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
