Rational Nation USA
Liberty -vs- Tyranny
As America continues its struggle to figure out just how to marry capitalism and the ever present social concerns of a modern advanced society I personally just sit back and chuckle.
The recent national melodrama, driven by the continuing debate over politically opposing views on the ACA (ObamaCare) as well as how to control the spiraling national debt highlights the above point nicely. And, it makes me chuckle all the more.
As I listened to the video I realized, more than ever, the proponents of the opposing political view(s) will never find that place were reason can ultimately result in effective, productive, and long term lasting results benefiting the individuals of this nation. This is largely because they willfully fail to recognize what is really in their rational self interest. I say this to the ideologically driven politicians and the elected officials of both parties that are only too willing to trade in dishonesty and eager to profit from their own position of influence and power.
Businesses that take advantage of, and wallow at the trough of government subsidies and are ready to accept money (taxpayer money) and other favors to keep their failing asses afloat are in the same boat as the politicians that manipulate us as they run the federal government..
Who is John Galt?
