I'm reading the news today and learn that the leaders of Iran say what liberal democrats in this nation think but will not say.
Iran's ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that "the school of Marxism has collapsed and the sound of the West's cracking liberal democracy is now being heard."
Hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, "it is the end of capitalism."
Liberals have been trying to end capitalism in the United States for decades by imposing regulation on businesses, high taxes, and government programs to take from the rich and give to the poor -- a form of socialism.
Liberals have been trying to change our capitalistic system to a socialistic system similar to what they have over in Europe. Yet, what they don't say, is that many people in Europe are becoming more conservative because they are tired of socialism.
Now, keep in mind that the democratic party is saturated with liberalism, but there are many liberals on the republican side too, hence all the increased federal spending the past eight years under republican leadership.
They are tired of taxes being so high they now have limited freedom. Sure they have free health care, but they have to pay for it with high taxes. Thus, the more taxes, the less freedom the people have to do anything else with their money.
Yes, it surely does sound good to take from the rich and give to the poor, but when capitalism has made us the truly greatest nation in the history of the world, when capitalism in its purest form has made many rich people richer and poor people richer at the same time, it still feels better to believe in liberalism.
The claims that liberalism works and socialism works and capitalism is unfair is absolutely not true. And, likewise, (and again) the claim that this financial crisis is in anyway occurring because of a failure of capitalism is itself a farce.
The truth, again, is this financial crisis is the direct result of too much government imposition on the markets. In a true capitalistic system, if people cannot afford loans they will not be given loans. But, as per Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, banks were forced to make such frivolous loans.
And the result was the housing bubble with its inflated housing prices, and now the bubble bursting because all those people, after all, could not afford to pay their loans.
So don't listen to the like of liberals and socialists and Iranian totalitarian thugs who will continue to chime that socialism is a failed system. It is not. The truth is, the current crisis is proof again that socialism has failed and capitalism wins again.
It's scary that one of the main political parties is not only on the same page with terrorist, totalitarian thugs when it comes to the War on Terror is also on the same page economically.
Thus, another reason not to vote for liberalism this November 4, 2008.
