Conservative Principles in Action
After repeatedly lambasting President Bush and many of his fellow Republicans on Capital Hill for not applying conservative economic principles to "Republican" policies, perhaps there is an ounce of retraction to be spoken in their favor. That is, thanks to Scott Tibbs' posting of a tax chart
, we can see that Bush's tax cuts have benefited all of us, not just the "rich" like the leftist media loves to portray. Any Robin Hood-like scheme smacks of Communism and will not work. Taking money from the rich to give to the poor will fail in the long run, mostly due in part to the innate industriousness of the rich and the innate poor money-handling of those who are poor. Face it--no one in this country is poor because of lack of opportunity. No one, except perhaps an exceptionally small percentage who are severely disabled, experienced unforseen disaster or in which their decision to stay faithfully married (for example, to a no-good cheating drunk bum) led to financial ruin. We live in the richest nation in the world; a nation in which freedom allows any one of us to seek economic improvements for our families. So let's stop the "Bush hates the rich" stuff and get to the point. Tax cuts benefit us all! Capitalism is not based on greed or envy like Communism (whose underlying motivation is to keep others from procuring more wealth than you); it is held affloat by the unseen hand that helps us all rise up together in economic prosperity.
All that just to say thank you to President Bush who cut taxes for us all, not just the rich.
