Just when you thought crazy couldn’t go any farther South, Democrats take it to the equator.
As media natter about “Barack’s Angels”—the Dems’ response to mystery guest Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention in Tampa—a telling video has emerged.
Talk radio host Peter Schiff interviewed delegates at the Democrats’ convention in Charlotte. Every delegate except for one featured in the video said corporate profits should be banned.
The people need those profits, doncha know?
One fellow described himself as a union man. Ban profits!
This video perfectly illustrates Democrats’ fatal flaws—the inability to envision and act upon consequences as well as a complete lack of understanding about how the economy works in a free society.
If you ban corporate profits, and embrace the collectivism President Barack Obama is so wild about, there go your union pension plans. There go your union benefits. There goes your tax base. There go your investors. And ultimately there goes your U.S. wealth because large corporations will seek friendlier shores.
Small corporations would tank. There go your jobs.
Furthermore, there goes your freedom.
Dems can bandy terms like fair share, level playing field and social justice ‘til the donkeys come home to the barn. The party’s anti-business policy will produce none of the above. Furthermore, considering the fact we have documented proof of corruption in government—Solyndra, the General Services Administration scandal, Fast and Furious—seems to me a genuinely moral person would start with government reform.
It’s amusing that the party claiming intellectual superiority would have such a scarcity of it among the delegates who allegedly control the party.
I say allegedly because Wednesday’s sham vote on returning words like Israel and God to the party platform dismissed the power of the delegates as evidenced by video you will see until Election Day. That vote was a generous gift to the Republican Party, by the way.
Meanwhile, a couple Hollywood starlets—“Barack’s Angels”—will allegedly take the stage tonight to heart the Democrat incumbent.
Will those starlets agree to a ban on corporate profits? If so, there go the designer dresses, gals.
There goes your party too—Dems have plenty of corporate support from employees and other associates like companies like Microsoft, GE, Google, Goldman Sachs and numerous others. If you think big money isn’t behind President Obama, you need to put your thinking cap on.
The bureaucracy we call the U.S. Government functions as the largest de facto corporation in the world. Unfortunately, the CEO in charge at present can't run it.
