Quote of the day–Alan Korwin

Politicians, and government in general, are world economic meddlers and obstacles. They interfere with business, slow its progress, regulate its advances, tax its earnings and generally make it harder for business to thrive, saddling it with red tape, trade barriers, obstacles to entry, and eating out its substance.

Politicians Aren’t Businessmen
[Very few people will understand this once Obama has been crowned. Unless his $775 Billion stimulus plan is about cutting taxes by billions rather than spending billions he is going to fail to improve the economy. Most people believe more rather than less government is the solution to their problems. If Obama says it even if it is all lies and jest people hear what they want to hear and disregard the rest.–Joe]

  1. I couldn’t have said it better myself, and I’ve tried.

    It’s pretty much “game over”. You know the socialists have won when their primary opposition has been, and remains, the socialist Republicans. It’s now just a matter of how easy we’re going to let them have their victory.

  2. This is a serious political misconception which must be corrected before we can possibly see any great change.

    Even those disillusioned with politics – those who might be on our side if they were better educated – tend to think of politicians as “businessmen” and so regard the inefficiencies and evils of government to be the faults of the wrong people being in charge. They’re the same people who think that politicians are interested in money.

    We’re stuck in this rut until people realize that politicians are not in it for money, they are seeking power, and that government is not a business, which must compete in a marketplace, but a force-backed monopoly. The root of the problem does not lay at the top with the people in charge, it is fundamental and intrinsic to the system.
