“Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them. They then start to nationalize everything.” – Margaret Thatcher
Obama is not the first Socialist, nor will he be the last. He is, however, the president who most embodies the ideals of Socialism. Just as Thatcher said, Socialism is essentially the redistribution of other peoples’ money. We all know that, yet it still continues to flourish as a hipster political philosophy.
It seems like it would be a natural understanding that the government spending more money means that we will have less money. But that isn’t the case. For example, according to Breitbart:
“The California Air Resources Board is reportedly considering a new plan to help transportation for low earners: buying them cars. The agency would like to give those of low income a voucher to buy energy-efficient vehicles like the Nissan Leaf, which has a sticker price of $21,000.”
First, why does the government need to buy cars for the poor? What is the benefit? There is none. The only thing that will happen is the further growth of a dependency state. The poor will get their nice new cars, but they will not be able to afford insurance. They’ll get in an accident, and cost numerous people money. This leads to the question of subsidizing insurance. Eventually, there will be no more money. One subsidization leads to another.
Second, whenever the government subsidizes something, it is actually the American people who pay the price. The government has no money of its own, it all belongs to the people. These Liberals love to bleed all over these causes that wind up helping nobody, while doing substantial harm to the economy—local or otherwise.
Stanley Young, of the Air Resources Board defends the idea, saying: “…Make sure low-income people can also get into these clean vehicles.”
Ah, there it is. The ultimate goal of this endeavor is climate-based. If the government cannot force Americans to buy electric vehicles (which are selling terribly), they will take our money to force the vehicles upon poor people. They will get their way, regardless of the will of the people.
There is always an agenda behind these bleeding heart projects. No matter how much Liberals say they care about A, 99% of the time, they actually only care about B. They use people as tools. We are merely a means to an end for them.
This is Socialism.
