The brilliant John Stossel recently tore apart the “insanity” that is today’s Democrat Party. Stossel is a Libertarian, not a Republican, and he quite often takes both parties to task for their differing anti-liberty ideas. So Stossel is no partisan hack; he’s an equal opportunity offender when it comes to pointing out problems with their platforms. However, he save particular scorn for the current and incredible disconnect between the Democrat Party and economic reality.
He uses one issue in particular to prove his thesis – the Democrat obsession with destroying any successful economic activity that they don’t own.
Today’s Democrats are insane. This isn’t just a new Bernie Sanders phenomenon. Watch what happened at the last Democratic Convention when radio host Peter Schiff walked around and asked people this: “Would you be in favor of a law banning corporate profits?”
“Maybe we should talk corporate losses.” “You actually want to force corporations to LOSE money?” “Yea. I think so.”
“Let’s do it!” “Through the nose!” “Through the nose!”
Are you kidding me? Just years ago President Bill Clinton backed free trade, signed welfare reform, presided over a budget surplus. But now Democrats are so clueless that they want to lower profits? Yes!
“We should put a cap on corporate profits so that no one corporation can earn too much money.” “Yea, I think that’s a good idea!”
What? What do they think will fund “free” healthcare, “free” education, and all of the other stuff they want to do? Maybe when it comes to money they don’t think. Tax money just flows in from corporations that make NO money… and rich people?!
It is completely insane, Mr. Stossel. Today’s Democrat Party would prefer seeing the destruction of our nation than admit that their policies don’t work, have never worked, and will never, ever work.
