If I wanted America to fail I would never tell them that...
...the free market is the only force in human history to uplift the poor, establish the middle class and create lasting prosperity.
... I would empower unaccountable bureaucrats in a distant capitol to bully Americans out of their dreams and their property rights.
... for every concern, I'd invent a crisis and for every crisis, I'd invent the cause.
And a nice little populist shout-out to us little folk out here in the hustings:
...and I would praise those who preach environmental austerity in public while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private.
... I would convince them that all of this is for the "greater good".
If I wanted America to fail... I suppose I wouldn't change a thing.
This message of "shared sacrifice" we keep hearing from our minders is never accompanied by a message of "shared prosperity" whereby there is an actual pro-growth economic strategy for all Americans. Small wonder then, when it is the jerk of statist redistributionism in which you have been marinating your entire adult life, that concept is an entirely foreign one.
The career political class in D.C. has no interest in any of this other than accruing more power in which to sap the American public. Let's remember that in November and act accordingly.
