Money = marker for someone's TIME, thought, effort = someone's Life spent When this is taken by force (tax, bonds, $ printing) -- life is stolen. Remember our founding words: ....with the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For the past 100 years, and ever more rapidly in the past forty, our governments have been actively ignoring that primary function --- They *should* be protecting EVERY individual's right to life, which they do by honoring and protecting every INDIVIDUAL's right to the product of their time, thought, and effort -- the value they produce that others are willing to trade for -- represented by the trade marker - money. Instead they have been forcibly and with great inventiveness been stealing the lives of every individual that produces a value to trade. IT IS OBSCENE. It is horrifically sad, as this was the first country that started with the idea that each individual's life was to be guarded FIRST, as superseding in importance whatever somebody or some group said was in the 'interest' of the masses, or this group or that group. No one was to be thrown into the volcano or bled to death for the 'sake' of the group. Ultimately, each of us is to blame. Over time, the # of value producers will wither. When their is no longer, or insufficient blood in the host -- what then for the screaming parasites? "They" said capitalism was evil because it was dog eat dog, survival of the fittest, and tooth and claw law of the jungle ---- they will see tooth and claw savagery--- but it won't come from those praying and working for a society where all respect each other's lives and trade value for value, no it will come from those who whispered -- I have a need, someone should fill it without recompense. Evil is not brutal til the very end.
Where in the world do you see anyone on our (presidential) political landscape who actually backs a true laissez fair free market view? We haven't been close to a free market in a long long time. It is the leftward creep (then leaps and bounds) that has gotten us into this ugly mess of socialism/corporatism..... enabled by those who are sort of 'conservative-light' -- which generally meant they didn't really fully understand all of the full ramifications of the ideas about self sacrifice, definitions of the good, the nature of government, etc.
"The evolving demographics of the country, combined with the profound changes to both the culture and the economy, demanded the GOP change both its sales pitch and its governing philosophy." Which is to say, the state-ist, collectivist, philosophical movement driven by our government schools and leftist media, made for a more leftward thinking culture and a crappy economy, and this *demanded* the GOP change both its sales pitch and its governing philosophy. More succinctly -the wrong headed side gained some forced and demagogue driven popularity so the GOP MUST give in and abandon its philosophical foundation. What a bunch of mushy-headed idiocy. Is this what you'd tell your kids? Equivalent of "Jump off bridge if everyone is doing it."

It's interesting that the typical Liberal can not conceive of a situation in which some one or some group does not 'run everything' or 'run things.' It's almost like, the Europeans, they don't really understand freedom and the rule of LAW. No.... it's exactly like that.

The point: the liberal, statist, collectivist, elite view teenage moms and their offspring as lifetime voters. It's a LOT easier to foster dependence. The driving forces behind collectivism have been doing this purposefully for over 60 years. The evil ideology is winning. It's so sad.
