I’m not casting this week as I’m busy creating value for other people. This cast is a repeat of Stating The Obvious 0196 – Why Statism? part 2 of 4 (follow this link for the show notes).
How democracy “works” – You need a large population of parasites and a small number of producers to create things for the parasite to demand access to. Stupid people will tell you democracy needs a financially strong and educated middle class to work. This is not correct. A financially strong and educated middle class doesn’t need the State to provide for them. They will not support taxes, wars, welfare and regulation.
Democracy, in order to “work” – and by “work” I mean keep the State powerful – requires very poor people and very rich people who can be turned against each other. This is why the poor still trail the rich after 6 years of the most socialist president the U.S. has had so far.
Obama came into office with the stated goal of “spreading the wealth around” and yet . . . are any of you poor people richer?
You can wait for your Messiah Hussein Obama to give you money or you can create wealth for other people and earn money. Your choice.
