– Was talking to a kid who knows everything…
…and he pointed out that the following statement was just not true:
“A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues.”
Sadly, he didn’t realize it wasn’t my words, it was a quote – John F. Kennedy, Sept. 18, 1963.
Kids have no frame of reference from which to work
Our economy tanked around 2007 and crashed in 2008. Since that time anyone that’s hit the workforce has graduated into an economic malaise. They haven’t had a chance to work in a thriving economy, so they are still subject to the propaganda spread by those who say their lack of wealth is caused by someone else having it.
Worth noting that the Democrats once had great leaders
Men like JFK were not averse to wealth, but instead embraced the idea we should all be encouraged to aspire to whatever heights we wanted to reach. They realized America is exceptional NOT in its ability to guarantee a handout at someone else’s expense, but in its ability to offer everyone an opportunity to make something of themself.
But that was then
Back then the Democrats were effectively the ONLY party in Texas. You didn’t have a chance here as a Republican. Those days are gone, and it’s not that Texas changed, it’s that the Democrats did. They have become the party of “free stuff”. They are the party that panders to the Obamaphone lady and her buddies. If you missed that brilliant piece… enjoy:
Meanwhile, An Example of TODAY’s Democrat Leadership
Here is a video of what in my opinion is one of the stupidest statements ever uttered by any national office holder ever. That’s a tall order given some things spoken over the last four years… but it is still the winner, as it illustrates the complete stupidity of todays DNC.
Congrats Nancy, you made your mark on history. Your statement beats the Obamaphone lady.
Sure, Obamaphone lady is an idiot, but she isn’t an idiot elected to Congress. God help the DNC.
