America’s Rising Socialists

America’s Rising Socialists


AS WE SEE RISING YOUNG
SOCIALIST STARS ENTERING THE CONGRESS, IT’S GOOD
TO REMEMBER SOME OF THE WISDOM OF RONALD REAGAN. HE FOUGHT VALIANTLY TO CUT
BACK WASTEFUL GOVERNMENT SPENDING. HE ONCE SAID, WOW, IF ONLY OUR NATIONAL
DEBT WAS AS LOW AS ONE TRILLION DOLLARS TODAY. OUR 40TH PRESIDENT ONCE
NOTED, “GOVERNMENT’S VIEW OF THE ECONOMY COULD BE
SUMMED UP IN A FEW SHORT PHRASES: IF IT
MOVES, TAX IT. IF IT KEEPS MOVING,
REGULATE IT. AND IF IT STOPS
MOVING, SUBSIDIZE IT.” IN RECENT WEEKS, NEW
REPRESENTATIVES TO CONGRESS HAVE PROPOSED
EVERYTHING FROM RAISING THE TOP INCOME TAX RATE
TO 70%, TO ONCE AGAIN IMPLEMENTING SINGLE-PAYER,
GOVERNMENT-CONTROLLED HEALTHCARE. THAT ALONE WOULD COST AN
ESTIMATED $32 TRILLION IN NEW GOVERNMENT SPENDING
OVER 10 YEARS- BASICALLY DOUBLING THE CURRENT
AMOUNT OF TAX MONEY THE GOVERNMENT TAKES FROM
“WE, THE PEOPLE.” AND ALL THAT NEW SPENDING
WOULD ONLY GIVE US THE SAME OVERBURDENED SYSTEM
WE SEE IN ENGLAND, WHERE OVER 4 MILLION OF
ENGLAND’S 66 MILLION PEOPLE CURRENTLY SIT ON
LENGTHY WAITING LISTS FOR NEEDED SURGERIES. WE WILL NEVER SOLVE OUR
NATION’S PROBLEMS BY IRRESPONSIBLY GROWING THE
SIZE OF GOVERNMENT AND REDISTRIBUTING WEALTH-
STRATEGIES THAT HAVE FAILED EVERYWHERE
THEY’VE EVER BEEN TRIED. IT DOESN’T WORK BECAUSE
GOVERNMENTS ARE RUN BY PEOPLE, AND CENTRALIZING
POWER AMONG SINNERS ONLY BRINGS TROUBLE. PRESIDENT REAGAN ONCE
DESCRIBED THE PROBLEM MEMORABLY. HE SAID: “GOVERNMENT
IS LIKE A BABY WITH AN ALIMENTARY CANAL THAT HAS
A BIG APPETITE AT ONE END AND NO SENSE OF
RESPONSIBILITY AT THE OTHER.”
