On Christmas, Liberals Are By No Means Liberal

Liberals have a lot of great sounding ideas that don't work. Conservatives have a lot of bad sounding ideas that do work. Do you want something that works or something that sounds good?

I want something that sounds good. Things that work require a lot of effort.

I want people to understand that the things which sound "bad" only do so because they require work and diligence along with understanding. Learning is the hard thing for people who have spent their whole lives being indoctrinated that earning is bad, that successful people aren't successful because they worked at something worthwhile rather than taking advantage of others.

Which reminds me. Why didn't the Republican Convention resonate? A bunch of minorities, among others, who told almost the same story. 2nd or 3rd generation natives who's parents came here with nothing, worked hard so their children could make something of themselves. The children who worked hard to get were they are. The operative words being "hard work". That's what offends the low information voter. Why work hard when President Santa Claus says you won't have to if you vote for him? and Merry Christmas to Dr. Sowell and all the TH community.
Random thoughts on the passing scene:

When I was growing up, an older member of the family used to say, "What you don't know would make a big book." Now that I am an older member of the family, I would say to anyone, "What you don't know would fill more books than the Encyclopedia Britannica." At least half of our society's troubles come from know-it-alls, in a world where nobody knows even 10 percent of all.

Some people seem to think that, if life is not fair, then the answer is to turn more of the nation's resources over to politicians --...
