If Elizabeth Warren is Their Leader, We’re in Good Shape

I haven’t been paying that much attention to Elizabeth Warren because a) she’s running in Massachusets and b) the stuff she says is pretty silly.  Her claim to fame is a YouTube video where she says that businesses are successful because they can take advantage of the US legal and physical infrastructure and, therefore, should be paying more in taxes to thank Uncle Sam.  This seemed silly to me because I don’t know any conservatives who quibble with paying for police, fire, and roads.  What we tend not to like paying for are NPR, a $6 billion fact finding commission on owls, or paying over 1,100 postal workers to sit around and do nothing.  Stuff like that.

Anyway, she’s a darling of the left now, which just shows how far the left has sunk.  Now, she’s claiming she created “much of the intellectual foundation” for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Riiiiight.

If Occupy Wall Street, which is marked by incoherence, is her “intellectual” child, well…

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
