Monday I had the luxury of being at my desk doing paperwork and I had Rush Limbaugh’s program going in the background. He had a 24 year old caller who had taken the Liberal (Leftist, Democrat, Progressive, Socialist, whatever) bait hook, line, and sinker as they say. He had called in to make the case that a tax cut equated to government spending. That reducing the tax burden on American corporations was tantamount to welfare for corporations. Now Barack Obama pulls that crap (“Tax cuts that we didn’t pay for”) I just never thought anyone with half a brain would buy that line.
Limbaugh picked this young man up at the end of a segment, asked him to hold on through the commercial, and continued to work with him. Limbaugh failed to make a dent in this guy’s thought process that everything he made, everything you make, and everything Ford Motor Corporation makes, somehow belongs to the government. I didn’t hear every word and every argument but it was stunning. No doubt the caller was a product of the public school system. What is scarier – he may have been voting for three election cycles!
I can kind of understand why a Professor of Environmental Studies at a University supported by taxpayer funds, working on a grant from government largess, and expecting to retire on a sweet pension would vote Democrat. It’s in his self-interest. But how on earth can someone believe after the record of catastrophe accumulated by government that the fruits of your labor are better handled and dispensed by the government? I mean exactly how many bridges to nowhere do we need? How many things can we build in
