So we were thinking, while watching and reading all of the quite proper arguments against raising taxes, excuse us, “enhancing revenue” in the middle of an economic depression as a means of eliminating the deficit combined with the gargantuan clusterfrack that is the impending EUro Collapse:
Why hasn’t a single one of the supposedly “best and brightest” GOP candidates connected the two because, to us, it’s pretty blindingly obvious.
But perhaps that’s only because we, unlike the moron politicos of this nation, actually have some first hand experience with that sort of thing. Maybe it’s a “you had to be there” sort of thing.
The EUnuchZone has some of the most outrageously confiscatory, rapacious taxes in the world and just what did that do to help them with their deficit?
We realize that the destructive effect of government theft of resources is obvious to anybody with an IQ of at least 50 and thus within the grasp of even Jon Huntsman, which might explain why none of the eggheads in the race have thought of elaborating on it further, but it ought to be equally obvious to those wannabes that the lesson clearly hasn’t sunk in among a sizable proportion of American voters, being the spoiled, cushioned, ignorant of the ways of the world brats that they are, so perhaps it might help to point it out to them?
We mean, EUnuchistan is about the width of three crotch hairs away from utter economic implosion and if you want a case study of Nanny and Welfare Statism, you can’t ask for a better one, so why not point it out?
We’d do so ourself — who are we kidding? We’ve done nothing but for going on ten years now — but evidently the great unwashed of this country (and pretty much the entire punditry) have no use for the experiences of people who’ve actually lived the “dream”, much better to leave that sort of analysis to the eggheads at the Weakly Standard or National Review who wouldn’t recognize socialism if it jumped up and bit off their carefully coiffed bangs, having no experience with it at all beyond trying to split a tab at the Four Seasons.
So hey, you “conservative think tank” geniuses. It’s right there. Would it kill you to point it out?
It would be uncivil and probably lead to a lot of instances of being uninvited to important cocktail parties inside the Beltway.
Can’t call socialists “socialists” or point out their failures, now can we? It’s simply not done.
Don’t Let’s Be Beastly to the Commies.
