The Proof is in the Pudding

I am still under the illusion that our leaders are taking us towards socialism. But it is the people who are doing it by electing those leaders.

Checkout a recent Rasmussen Poll

Only 53% of this country feels that capitalism is better than socialism? Maybe a history teacher can confirm some things for me; when did students stop learning about our founders and the constitution? Probably around the same time prayer was removed from the schools in the early 60's. That fits with the general trend of younger people leaning towards socialism.

Ignorance, plain and simple. People are failing to see the results of socialism across the globe and throughout history. There are no examples of a successful socialist state anywhere, anytime. People have mistaken the sins of people for the wrong social and economic system. I guess that is a natural move if there is no God, thus no sin.

In case you missed the elected officials who visited Fidel Castro last week, here is a recap.

Is Fidel Castro a person we should be looking up too? Am I crazy for thinking that these congressmen and women are off their rockers?

  1. "The core substantive principle of liberalism is this: As many people as possible should have as much say as is feasible over the direction their lives will take." That means, on the one hand, open societies with no more than a necessary minimum of state coercion, and on the other hand, a guarantee of "sufficient economic security to individuals so that they are not dependent on the arbitrary will of others for the basic necessities of life." As this definition makes admirably clear, conservatives and libertarians are simply one-handed liberals, opposed to restraints on economic activity but unconcerned about those unable, for whatever reason, to take part in economic activity on equal terms
