It’s long been surmised that the Liberals dislike and distrust America and Americans. For last couple of decades they’ve developed an quasi-exilic philosophy when it comes to the nation they live within and people they reside among. It has always seemed that they seek government intervention because of their belief that Americans are inherently wrong or evil and that they can’t ever be trusted to do the right thing unless they are forced to do so.
Now we have some strong evidence that our surmisation was not too far off base.
A tax cut is non-targeted. If you put a tax cut into the hands of either a business of an individual today, there is no guarantee they’re gonna invest their money. There’s no guarantee they’re gonna invest their money in the United States. They’re free to go to invest anywhere that they want, if they choose to invest… The fact is, none of those people are guaranteed to invest that money in any of the new projects that we are… So government, yes government, has the ability to make a decision that the private sector won’t necessarily make today.
— Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)
Testimony Before the US Senate
Senator John Kerry, the Liberals poster boy now that John Edwards disgraced himself, eloquently summed up the Liberals’ view of Americans. They don’t trust us and believe that they’re right not to do so since we might not invest our money in their projects.
The Liberals – so perfectly personified by Sen. Kerry – find it impossible to believe that Americans would invest their money even remotely wisely, or even within the US it seems. They certainly seem sure that Americans would invest their money in the projects that the Liberals are developing and championing. In their minds, we must all be forced to fund their efforts – for the good of the nation of course.
One doesn’t have to wonder too much about why they feel this distrust towards Americans. The Liberals aren’t stupid; they know that many or most of those programs that they want wouldn’t receive voluntary investment because they don’t work. If people are allowed to retain the freedom to use their money as they see fit, most of the things that Kerry and the Liberals want to do would die off due to lack of funding. That is because capitalism and a free market only invests in projects that offer some chance of a return, whether it be monetary or ephemeral.
Make no bones about it; it’s Americans’ freedom that these Liberals despise. They do not believe that Americans can be trusted with their own freedom or money.
Liberal politicians and their followers rant about “failed policies and theories of the past,” but they seem to have no qualms about demanding that Americans accept, condone, and endorse policies and theories based upon State Socialism, which is a political-economic model that was proved to be a failure by both the collapse of the Soviet Union (USSR) and China’s (PRC) adoption of capitalistic economics.
It’s really no wonder that Sen. Kerry and the Liberals distrust Americans; they and us have very different views of America.
