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.
I think a good answer for "How will you pay for your agenda?" is "We're a very rich country. We'll figure it out."

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.
No matter how many times I see this take, I still can’t get past how offensively stupid it is. This is weapons-grade stupidity. https://t.co/3I6vlNITyu

Ask yourself this.
Who do you want determining how your earnings are spent?
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.
