A Wake-up Call

Posted 11-27-2013 at 05:22 PM by spare_change
I woke up this morning, and as I am wont to do, I lay there contemplating the state of the world, both near and far. It's important that I utilize this time to gather my thoughts, and marshal my positions, because you just never know when somebody at the breakfast table would ask my opinion on the diamond-smuggling in Sierra Leone or the use of pure naptha in Madagascar.

This morning, however, was given to self contemplation - a look at where I am, where I've been, and where I am...

Right is Right --- Everything Else Is Wrong

This article purports that partisanship is what has led the transition of a significant number of voters from liberal (Democrat) to conservative (Republican) positions. It shows a decreasing number of voters who identify themselves as Democrats feel the government is a threat, while the number of voters who identify...

Moving On ... Time To Come Clean

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

--- Thomas Jefferson


Clearly, Mr. Jefferson would not approve of wealth redistribution, as it is being defined and applied today. To punish some for their efforts, and to reward others for the lack of it, would seem to be inconsistent with the democratic goals of self-realization and growth.

Wealth Redistribution

Posted 11-26-2009 at 10:57 PM by spare_change
"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

-- Thomas Jefferson


Mr. Jefferson would seem to be opposed to the concept of income redistribution. To take from one the fruits of his labor, for whatever reason, would, in Mr. Jefferson's opinion, be antithetical to good government....
