I get so tired of hearing class envy arguments filled with the same old liberal clichés which always come down to one thing: tax increases for the rich in the name of “liberal” code words like “fairness”, which is another word for “income redistribution”. I abhor the Robin Hood analogy of stealing from those who work, create jobs, and put their capital at risk to give to those who don’t work or know the first thing about how to create a job.
The government will never be the solution for solving our economic problems and creating a robust economy. The solution has always been and always will be with a private sector based on the constitutional guarantees of liberty and private property rights, which for the most part means “money”.
Liberal Democrats have no right to to decide how much is too much for people to have. “Keep your grubby hands off my money” I always say, and unfortunately I don’t have very much of it. If I want to be charitable and it was one of the Bible based beliefs this country was founded on i.e. “faith, hope, and charity” then that is my choice and my responsibility before God. It is not the governments right to force me to be charitable.
The government in my opinion is no more than a school yard bully ready to take your lunch money at a moments notice and is always an entity we need protection against.
Furthermore, I believe the government is not and never will be a friend that can be trusted. Those qualities belong to the country, which was ingeniously designed during its’ founding to maintain a weak central government for the most part linked to a confederation of strong state governments which many have given their life for over the years so we all may enjoy the God given rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, so important to the founding fathers.
