Hillary and Taxes — Chutzpah on Parade

It should also be noted that when “the rich” have more of their money stolen by the likes or Hillary Clinton they have less money to invest. When the government takes that money and squanders it on worthless government programs no new jobs are created. It is business investment that creates jobs, for people who…

A Quote For Our Times

Lincoln would now see government not of, by, and for all the people but of, by, and for some kinds of people. He would see it not as of all the people but as of the political activists. He would see government not as by the people but as managed by the politicians and their…
