"Extremism" in the Defense of Freedom is a Good Thing
7 April 2011 Michael Hurd

Big Government Senators have labeled Tea Party types as "extreme." The label itself is supposed to disarm them and inhibit all debate.

Of all the stupid things said in political Washington D.C., few are as ridiculous as the claim that a government shutdown, or government spending cuts, will "harm" the American economy.

Such a statement relies on the most false premise imaginable: That government creates wealth. This is plainly untrue. Government cannot create wealth. This false idea, in American history, goes back to the semi-fascist administrations of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt. These two Presidents believed, as does the current one, that government organization is the key to economic prosperity. According to this point-of-view, wealth is created by the efficiency of politicians, not by individuals in the private sector. Political goals (left-wing ones, always) are, according to this view, what generate economic growth -- not self-interest, profit or a simple desire for personal success.

Tell that to any successful entrepreneur or innovator in the history of mankind. Try to find such innovators in the halls of government. You won't find any. The only people you find in government are people willing to take credit for the accomplishments of others.
Ken-G. Johansen.

Jepp, staten liker å ta æren for hva folk har klart å oppnå, husker en Ap fyr snakket om hvordan staten hadde hjulpet næringslivet fram under deres styre. Det er en artig måte å få støtte i folket på.
