It’s not the Government’s money!!!

Money

Honestly, I just do not understand why socialists cannot get it through their thick skulls that the wealth in America doesn’t belong to the government.

But they simply do not understand it.

Take MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, for example.

In an effort to come to the defense of Bolshevik Barbie’s completely embarrassing Daily Show interview, Hayes tweeted out this.

Of course what Chris doesn’t explain here is that in order to pay for things, the Government – which creates none of this “rich” country’s wealth — has to take your money.

America’s wealth belongs to those who create it and earn it – not to the government.

It’s not the Government’s money.

How hard is that to understand?

And as soon as the Government takes that money out of the economy, the economy will collapse.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has no problem with the idea of taking from some Americans in order to redistribute their wealth to others.

Because to her, your money doesn’t belong to you.

It belongs to the Government.

Therefore, the Government should be free to determine how much of your own hard-earned money you are permitted keep.

It’s why these morons refer to tax cuts as “spending.”

Because cutting taxes, to them, is the government relinquishing what rightfully belongs to it.

Socialists don’t believe in property rights.

The don’t believe in economic freedom.

And they really don’t believe that you know how to better spend your own money.

Ask yourself this.

Who do you want determining how your earnings are spent?

You?

Or a dummy like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

The problem these people have – in addition to being painfully stupid – is they don’t understand the concept that wealth can be created. To them, there’s a fixed, finite amount of money in the universe. There will never be any more; and there will never be any less. So the only way to make life “fair” is to make sure that fixed amount is evenly distributed.

But that’s not how an economy works.

In a free market economy, wealth is created. There isn’t a finite amount of wealth floating around out there that never increases.

You’d think a so-called “economics major” like Ocasio-Cortez would comprehend that.

But she doesn’t.

So dummies like her and Chris Hayes just assume that if there is trillions of dollars in our economy, that the Government has a right to confiscate it and spend it any way it wants.

But the American people are not the indentured servants of the Federal Government.

And we sure as hell are not the Government’s personal ATM card.

The problem with a government deciding to drain the wealth out of the pockets of the people is, as Margaret Thatcher famously said, eventually you run out of other people’s money.

But, sadly, people like Ocasio-Cortez will never ever understand that.

    Ocasio-Cortez has an economics degree? I’ll bet dollars to donuts that her degree was also filled with so many SJW classes and “studies” classes that her degree, such as it is, becomes worthless. Her own words attest to that.

    I had an argument with a socialist who, after I said that your money doesn’t belong to the government, told me, “Well, it’s federally issued money, so it belongs to the government.”

    I would argue that it’s more often ignorance rather than stupidity, Dianny, although in “Occasional-Cortex’s” case it’s probably both. Merely one more example of progressives being ruled by emotion rather than logic.

    Economists are generally held in disrespect. Like politicians, because they lie! (Disclaimer- when I needed a Resume the first 2 (of many sets)initials after my name did not – as friend suggested, mean I was a Bad Ass – they were for my Econ degree.).
    2 examples of Nobel economists telling what I understood when they said them were politically motivated LIES!

    1. When Ronny ran for Pes he said he would un do Jimmy’s tax + spend regulations on oil. A Nobel winning FDR economist (he ran the FDR equivalent of CLC- name not really important.) said were Ronny elected oil would be $80 a Bbl by ’84 and gas would be $4.50 a gal in ’84! ( more disclosure: I voted for Jimmy in 76. Well Ronny did what he promised and oil dropped 50% in 2 years – from$40Bbl to 20Bbl. Gas prices dropped almost 67% in 8 years; falling to $0.859 a Gal when he left office!

    There was never any doubt in my mind that this Econ Phd was telling lies. History proved me right!

    2. Oct ’16. NYT Nobel winner said that were Don elected the DJA would fall to 12,000 within a year. And unemployment would climb to 9%.
    The DJIA wclosed at 25,527 Fri and unemployment is now 4 .0%. Paul lied again. He has been telling lies for at least 20 years!.

    I am aware of only 2 men withe Econ degrees that are honest: Ronnie and the Jarhead! She lies; of course she does. Just like Paul at the NYT. Economists are the brunt of many bad jokes (HST told many; before most readers were born.) and they deserve it! She is telling a “Compassionate conservative” lie! she knows it; and so do I!

    Venezuela was once the richest country in South America, now they’re eating zoo animals. Socialism = ruin.
    Bring it. I won’t be eating zoo animals, I’m going all in for liberal vegetarians. Mmmmm.
    Socialism kills people.
