I guess. If you believe all right wingers are gangsters who force you to buy their protection plan.
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
Edit: this article is fake and I missed the disclosure of that because of adds. The point remains regardless though.
and this...is beautiful.
1)You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2)What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3)The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4)You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!.
5)When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
Personally I find this to be pretty spot on. You can't have a regulated free market...just like you can't have a regulated free people.
Personally I feel that the reason capitalism appears to be the bad guy is because the government is an open opportunity to leverage your business...The government should learn to abide by the constitution and this kind of abuse wouldn't be possible.
Many fail to understand the mentality behind successful business, its calculated and rarely utilizes emotion...it makes the most logical and practical decision possible as many times as possible...when you have a whore of a government that gets in bed with everyone free of charge...then that pony is going to be rode hard and put away wet...all day every day.
That is exactly what is happening...the constitution limited governmental power so people couldn't BUY the government and enslave the people. The government with limitation isn't an asset nor an interest to business/corporations...but a government without limitation? Well that is an asset that will be bought and sold 10 fold and used to its fullest extent...
