-A +A
Bail out businesses that cannot succeed on their own merits? Give jobs to everyone regardless of ability? Print money that cannot be backed by reserves? Provide free services to everyone regardless of needs? Penalize the rich then distribute their fair earnings among the lazy and the poor? Create a government that has people staging protests in the streets? Forgive debts of greedy homeowners? Have Obama or any of the protesters ever read Any Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”? Written in the 1950s, it describes exactly where we are today and exactly where we are headed. We will be our own downfall and socialism will take over, destroying our country. Where does the money come from when the “rich” decide to close down their companies and lay off their detractors? God save our country. Gregory Nauslar, Folsom
