Beware the liberals bearing gifts
In addition to nominating for president a notoriously corrupt and wicked individual, the Democrat Party has also adopted a most extraordinary platform. It is extraordinary for its sheer outlandish foolishness. I don’t know how to link to the PDF document itself, but here is one of several sites that contain such a link ( http://reason.com/blog/2016/07/26/democratic-platform-2016-science-plankx ). So you don’t have to take my word for any of this: you can easily read it yourself–if you’ve got the stomach for it.
Among many inanities the platform lays out a national economic policy to be adopted by Careless Clinton if she gets elected. Even this section is too turgid to quote in its entirety; but here are some of the things they say they want to do.
–“Rein in the corporations” (except for those that make sizeable donations to the Clinton Foundation)
–Raise “the workers'” wages by order of the federal government, which sounds like something usually done only in countries that had names like Such-and-Such-Peoples Democratic Republic, etc.
–Force “the corporations” to share profits with their employees (the document always says “workers,” but I can only type that out so often before it makes me gag)
–Impose all kinds of environmental restrictions on business
–Compel businesses to provide expanded benefits to all employees
And then, having done all that–wait for it!–they propose… “to create well-paying jobs” all around the country.
Uh, who is going to offer these good jobs, once they’ve finished gutting business and making it virtually impossible to turn a profit?
I have been in business, and here is one thing that everyone ought to understand: if you don’t make a profit, you don’t have a business. As a rule of thumb, in order to keep any kind of business healthy, you have to be able to sell a good or a service for twice what you paid for it. Otherwise, it’s belly-up.
Obviously career politicians who have never owned a business, or ever worked for one, don’t know this. Or simply don’t care.
What do you get when you combine dishonesty, vast corruption, hypocrisy, empty promises, and just plain wacko ideology?
I hope we don’t find out.
