On the professed puzzlement of liberal economists over how to overcome the country’s economic malaise…
Why are we blind to history? What in the world is so unique about now, other than, for the first time we’ve got somebody actively trying to destroy the private sector job creation that has always defined this country’s greatness. Well, if we know that, then we also know what to do. And that is – defeat this guy… the whole Washington mindset, that if they can’t come up with something, then there is nothing to do. Which represents the whole problem – the world does not revolve around Washington, and this country does not revolve around Washington. Washington is nothing but a gigantic boulder in our highway. To progress… I’m not saying this in a reactionary way. I’m not saying it even in an ideological way. This is pure, unadulterated fact. You simply cannot have this level of regulation on people who want to create jobs, who want to grow businesses, start them. You just can’t have this kind of shackle around them, and expect magic to happen.
On the relationship between the rich, the middle class, and the poor.
Somebody who is rich is not hurting somebody who is poor. Or middle class... A rich person is not hurting anybody. You take all the money away from the rich, where do the people who work for them go? What happens to them? Somebody who's rich is not hurting anybody who's poor, or middle class. Some politician (or) government bureaucrat can destroy your job. Somebody in government can destroy your profession, regulate your profession out of existence. Somebody in government can take your assets, or drive up your costs and prices and do more harm to you than any other person or people. And we look at them as the great equalizers?
