Governments Consume

Posted on January 21, 2012 at 3:19pm 1 Comment

Governments don’t produce wealth. If this were not true, why do governments collect taxes? Why don’t they just pay their bills out of the wealth that they have produced? The fact is that all governments, from the very first, consume wealth. Everything that the government does, even if necessary or important, is consumption.

Prior to the 18th century, all Governments acquired wealth by invasion, conquest, enslaving the conquered, various forms of subjection (serf, vassal,…

Government and the Redistribution of Wealth

Posted on August 31, 2011 at 9:58pm 0 Comments

 

Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary defines socialism: b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state. (Emphasis mine. )

Production controlled by the state, or socialism, has been around for as long as there have been governments. The taking of the fruit of the labors of those that are productive and giving it to those who are not is the method by…

Thanks, ROC 29, for sharing that link!

If Republicans can figure out the key to reaching the people, they can win the election. The main thing to keep in mind is they don't trust government!

At the same time, they count on government to keep it's promise to follow through with their Social Security and Medicare Entitlements. When politicians start talking about "austerity measure," they interpret it to mean that the little they are expecting to get, will be taken away.

Thanks for the note, Roc29,

Here's the thing: my organization is based on a conservative agenda.  You can see it if you go back a week or so in my blog.  We don't have "party control" right now, we have the control of the very, very few individuals over the many.  My concept would be made of state and national councils all of which would have to stick to the agenda, posted for all to see prior to our voting for any member of this party and sending them to DC.  Lobbyists would be out of the picture.  We know what works in government and what makes sense.  The constitution spells out powers.  Take the whimsy away from individuals in office and the possibility, to the extent possible, that they can be corrupted, base it on that agenda, posted for all to see, and I think you've got a winner.

Finally, it's as clear as day that the status quo is a loser.  I prefer action to doing nothing.

"Hope" is bulls***.

Hi Roc29,

The post was my recommendation on how to change it.  Change the party rules -- or change the party.

Few of us know and understand the crisis that is at hand.  I think it's too late.  The young will not listen to reason, and I'm too old to fight.  I'm working on having enough cornbread and chicken to make to the end.  Good luck to you, and may GOD bless, z

Your comments are right on.  The Democrat mindset doe's not allow them to win a war.  They like to win a battle and then forsake a war victory.  Bush made a similiar mistake after the Irac win to reshape the country into a Democracy.  I say, bomb, figh, and t win the battle and get out. We cannot reshape the world.

No, redistribution of wealth is from the producers to the non-producers.
