One of the Seven Deadly Sins is greed. In the Bible it is addressed as avarice. Either word is correct, either word is not necessarily a good thing but is a necessary evil and component in a free society. Economic freedom cannot exist in a culture, unless there is a healthy amount of it, even if that means some unhealthy amounts exist.
Progressives disagree with that notion, they think government is the answer to make greed go away. But before anyone reading this post is tempted to get indignant about my statements, here is a short clip from a late 70s Phil Donahue shown you might want to watch. Notice how quiet Phil gets, when Mr. Friedman makes his points:
How is greed a good thing? Give this a read.
Someone started a business in her own home and because she saw the potential to make more money, she now has a payroll, which means she has created some jobs along the way.
There are stories all over this nation like this. A small business gets bigger and needs more people to hire to make it grow. But if you penalize these people by categorizing them as greedy corporate jet owners because their income is above $250,000 annually (which isn’t that much anymore), you will see no more growth of these kinds of businesses and thus there will be no job creation. More people will be on the public dole and less people will be paying into it.
This is not rocket science. This is not fuzzy math.
Once a government swells so big and and out of control that the citizenry cannot fund it anymore, once there are more government jobs (both directly funded and subsidized), it will collapse like Greece is trying to do. Greece is a small country that has little influence on a large scale, but it is microcosm of what this nation will become if the present government continues to spend us into oblivion.
Call your Congressman and Senators and tell them you will not tolerate any more out of control spending. Tell them that if they continue to do so, those up for re-election will be fired like many were last year. Now is not the time to get passive. Now is the time to be assertive, now is the time to be active. Now is a good time to STOP THE MADNESS.
