If Not Capitalism, What?

It wasn’t socialism that made this the greatest country in the history of the world. It wasn’t communism that made this country the envy of the world and the destination of choice for people who want to better themselves. It wasn’t collectivism, of any kind, that caused this country, in less than 30 years, to bypass civilizations that have been around for thousands of years, and especially not Islam. So why do so many people vilify capitalism without saying why? It’s because they can’t say why. They have an unreasonable hatred of capitalism, instilled in them by liberals with no reason.

INCOMPETENCE IN GOVERNMENT: One of the best illustrations of political incompetence is the liberal idea that Americans don’t know how to spend their money properly; that we need the government (which has wasted $TRILLIONS of dollars on idiotic things) to tell us how to spend it. Our major problem today is that the vast majority of politicians down through history have been incompetent and have no idea how to govern.

“SPENDING OURSELVES RICH”: Another foolish and incompetent idea government has used to “spend us into bankruptcy” is the idea that we can SPEND our way out of a recession. That the way to more “revenue” is taxing us more. This in spite of the evidence before their eyes otherwise.

BUSH WAS NOT UNPOPULAR: The liberal media has a lot of people who don’t pay attention to politics convinced that Bush was one of the worst, and most unpopular presidents in memory. In spite of the fact that the economy boomed during his administration until the screwups DEMOCRATS put in effect destroyed it. I have my own problems with some of his policies, but overall, he was a decent president.

“SHALLOW EARTHQUAKE” IN DC: What other kind would there be? There’s nothing in Washington these days that is not “shallow.” Except for the “money pit” Obama is digging for us. I heard today we’re now $4 TRILLION more in debt than we were under Bush after EIGHT YEARS, most of it with a Democrat Congress. Bush spent $4 trillion in EIGHT YEARS and Obama has spent that much in little over TWO YEARS.

“OOPS! WE WERE WRONG!” Has anybody noticed how often the government (and business) changes what it does, and how it operates because they “discover” what they’re doing was wrong and was killing too many people? One day coffee is bad for you; next, it’s beneficial. One day eggs are bad; the next they’re good. Alcohol is bad, then it’s good. Sugar substitute is good for you, then it’s bad. I wouldn’t believe anything these people ever told me.
