When the People fear the Government, you have Tyranny.  When the Government fears the People, you have Liberty.

I'm Mad As Hell And I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore!

                                                                                                                                        Punish The Successful
 



If you want to divide people with dissenting views to make it easier to implement your political ideas, one good way to do it is create envy and a sense of unfairness.  What class of people are easy targets for this?  The Rich!  Oh my god.  Look at those rich people!  Let's just take their money!  We all know that they didn't work for it or risk anything for it.  They were just lucky. 

So, let's see how this works.  Here are two scenarios:

John is born.                                                                                                             Joe is born.
John gets a high school diploma.                                                                        Joe gets a high school diploma.
John decides not to continue his education.                                                     Joe works two jobs to put himself through college.           
John gets a job making $24,000 a year.                                                            Joe buys a used car for $800.
John buys a new car or motorcycle.                                                                    Joe works a 40 hour a week job making $24,000 a year.
John buys a fishing boat.                                                                                      Joe gets a second job working 20 hrs a week at $10 an hour.
John buys new rims and a super radio for his car.                                         Joe works these hours for 5 years to save enough to open a coffee shop.
John likes to come home after working a 40 hr week and relax with          Joe works 60 hours a week for 3 years to build his business. 
     a case of beer and the remote control.                                                         Joe saves enough to open a second coffee shop and hires more people.
John gets behind on his bills.                                                                             Joe works 80 hours a week to keep both shops running smoothly.
John gets pissed at his boss because he was asked not to wear his      Joe finally trades in the old car for a nice two year old one.
     baseball hat while working.  John feels disrespected and quits.           Joe works 80 hours a week for the next 10 years and now has 20 coffee shops.
John gets further behind on his bills.                                                                Joe employs 100 people.
John hears people talk about how evil the rich people are and says         Joe finally buys that new car, a nice house, and can play golf once a week.
       "hell yes".                                                                                                          Joe can now keep a lot of people employed.
John gets another job but is let go because he showed up drunk.             Oh, Joe now makes $250,000 a year and still works 80 hours a week.
John gets his 3d DUI and looses his license.                                                            Joe -------------> Evil Rich.
John drives anyway and gets caught and is DUI again.
John goes to jail and hears that all the trouble in this country
     is because rich people are greedy.  And when they say raising the taxes
     on the rich and giving it to the poor will fix everything,
     John says "hell yes".  Damn rich people.  What did they
     ever do for me.

The line in the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when the the wrong challis is chosen and the Knight says "He chose poorly" illustrates what Freedom is.  The Freedom to choose success, failure or mediocrity.  No place in the Constitution or Bill of Right does it guarantee equal pay or life styles.  It guarantees your Freedom to choose.  Choose to work your butt off in a effort to succeed or just do enough to get buy.  It's up to you. 

People that have made the sacrifice to work long hours, get an education or risk everything to open a business are the very ones that hire people.  If you shut them down, then what?  I have never gotten a job from a poor person.  My God!  I love rich people.  Yeah baby!  Expand that business and hire more people.  The more people that work, the better off the Country and it's citizens will be.

Here is a passage from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged (http://www.aynrand.org/site/PageServer?pagename=index:) that gives a different slant on Money or Profit.  They are Not the dirty words our Government would have us believe.

To the glory of mankind, there was, for the first and only time in history, a country of money—and I have no higher, more reverent tribute to pay to America, for this means: a country of reason, justice, freedom, production, achievement.  For the first time, man’s mind and money were set free, and there were no fortunes-by-conquest, but only fortunes-by-work, and instead of swordsmen and slaves, there appeared the real maker of wealth, the greatest worker, the highest type of human being—the self-made man—the American industrialist.  If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose—because it contains all the others—the fact that they were the people who created the phrase “to make money.”  No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity—to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor.  Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created.  The words “to make money” hold the essence of human morality.

 

Our Governments Deliberate Action to Allow the Economy to Decline

 

 

In our country of very intelligent people, doesn’t it seem strange that our Government seems to be ignorant?  Remember, these are the very well educated people we elected to represent our interests and defend the Constitution.  They are the ones that are supposed to work For the American people, not against them.

 

So what in the hell am I talking about?  I’m talking about an economy in dramatic decline while Washington seems to believe spending more of our money and going into debt with foreign governments is the right thing to do.  I’m talking about a Government that does not believe in the virtue and strength of American business and the importance of the word profit.  A Government that is more interested in how it can gather even more power over the people than returning that power to its rightful owners, the American citizen.  I’m talking about a Government that would rather loot the hard work of its productive citizens and give it to those that would rather mooch off that productivity than contribute to the financial health of the country.

 

OK, that’s all well a good, but what could our (you notice I use the word Our not There) Government do?  They tell us all the time that every one getting paid for the work they do is greedy and should share what they worked hard for with those that don’t work.  How about this…………GET OUT OF THE WAY OF BUSINESS AND GET OUT OF MY WALLET!!!!!!!   Eliminate corporate taxes and capital gains taxes for a start.  Or institute the Fair Tax.  Can you imagine how fast our economy would turn around if Washington just did that?  Of course, if they do that, they will be giving away power and you know they can’t do that!  Well, they won’t do that until all the unclean, unwashed masses (that’s you and I) stand up and take our power back.

 

Back to the deliberate actions to allow the economy to decline.  The natural state of man is dominance over other men.  Yes, it’s true.  That is why our founding fathers wrote our Constitution to limit the size of Government.  They knew if the Government got to much power the citizens and Freedom would suffer.  Our politicians know that when there is a crisis they have a better chance to convince us that we should depend on them more and on ourselves less.  The more of a crisis they can get the economy into the more people will be dependant on them for their needs.  Ever here the story about giving a man a fish and feeding him for a day or teaching him how to fish so he can feed himself for the rest of his life?  Our Government really likes to hand out fish but will kick and scream when our businesses want to be treated fairly so they can expand and hire more people.  When you hire more people you have to train them.  That is where teaching them how to fish comes in.  Now they can feed themselves.  Can’t have that if you are the Government.

 

If you over regulate, over tax  and demonize American business they will eventually stop producing.  And when they stop producing, they stop hiring.  When they stop hiring more people are out of work.  When more people are out of work the Government has the people just where they want them.  Dependant.  So if a majority of the people are dependant on the Government and are not paying taxes to support the Government where does the Government get the money to support the new dependants?  Why, tax anyone who is left.  Of course, when you tax the remaining evil rich or people that still have a business, they also go out of business or if they have enough money they move out of the country.  So now we have a country that is all Government with no income from the people or business.  The only thing they can do now is tell each one of us what we will do for work, where we will live, what kind of car (if we are allowed to have one) to drive, and tell us that we will now be working 70 hours a week 7 days a week for the Government.  Not ourselves but for Them.  For many of us that are older we may never see the full extent of total Government control.  But our children and grandchildren will.  Anyone who is willing for their children and grandchildren to become slaves of the Government is someone you really don’t want to associate with.  Seems to me that this country fought a war over slavery.  What will you be?  The facilitator of your children’s slavery or a patriot that will fight with every breath of your being to stop our Governments growth and domination over our people?
