“Government spending cannot create additional jobs. If the government provides the funds required by taxing the citizens or by borrowing from the public, it abolishes on the one hand as many jobs as it creates on the other.” 

~Ludwig von Mises, Planned Chaos, pagew 20-21 

 

“We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish. “

~Friedrich A. Hayek

Most Americans Oppose Second Stimulus and Using Bailout Funds for States

“…56% of Americans oppose the passage of another economic stimulus package this year. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats are hoping to spend more to combat unemployment, just 33% favor another stimulus plan.

Thirty-six percent (36%) of voters believe the first stimulus plan passed in February has helped the U.S. economy, but 34% say it has hurt the economy.

Most Americans (53%) believe the U.S. economy will be helped more by decisions made by business leaders to help their own businesses grow rather than by decisions made by government officials. Just 29% say decisions made by government officials to help the economy grow will do more.

By a 59% to 24% margin, voters believe that an increase in government spending will hurt the economy.

Voters hold these views at a time when they don’t expect the economy to turn around soon. Looking ahead to a year from now, 67% expect unemployment will be the same or higher than it is today. But, 76% still prefer a free market economy over a government-managed approach. …”

Hayek on Socialism 

 

“An essential point in the social philosophy of interventionism is the existence of an inexhaustible fund which can be squeezed forever. The whole system of interventionism collapses when this fountain is drained off: The Santa Claus principle liquidates itself.”

~Ludwig von Mises, Human Action, pages 854 and 858

That Billion Dollar Stimulus Package is Criminal

By Alicia Colon

“…Socialism is almost always promoted as an ideal by those who have never lived in dire poverty. They have a romantic idea of the poor that has no basis in reality. People may have been created equal but the success of their pursuit of happiness is only determined by their individual efforts.

 

I grew up in the slums of Spanish Harlem in the 1950’s and watched the advent of socialist programs destroy families by making an absent father an eligibility requirement. Those like my mother (and like Michael Steele’s mother in Maryland), who refused to enter that trap made it possible for us to leave the barrios and the ghettos. Those who fell for the demagoguery of political scam artists remain crippled there expecting cradle-to-grave government care.

 

That billion dollar bill was not designed to stimulate the economy. It was intended to destroy it and those who voted for it in Congress are either criminal conspirators or just plain dumb. In either case, they need to be voted out of office.  …”
