CONSERVATIVE THINKING ON THE MARCH

This from Jeremiah a commenter at B4V:

I have never heard that “money is a finite resource.” If that is the case, then it begs the question … if money is the only means for securing needs for survival, as it is the only means of economy that we rely on, and it is “finite,” then wouldn’t money have stopped circulating some time ago? The exchange of money for goods would have not worked.

There are many things that I am not, and an economist is one of them, but from what I know, and have read, money is not a creation of the government, that markets, which pre-existed the state have full jurisdiction of the exchange of services for goods (or, in this case, money). And that the government should not regulate or tax markets for the services they’ve rendered. That is why America became a top-notch in the world, because of a FREE market. Why we prospered until this point in our history.

Now, I’m not an anti-wealth person, at all. If you can get ahead in the world, with hard work and ideas, then you’ve achieved the American dream, and have well deserved it by earning it. I am also not against corporations, nothing wrong with entrepreneurship, though I am of the firm opinion that corporations should not have monopolies over large sections of any field, because that cuts in on the little man’s business. Small business, independent retailers must then dissolve their businesses, and/or file for bankruptcy because they cannot compete against the corporate lords. Well, enough with that…

What I really don’t get, is how does the government expect anyone to survive with their tax hikes, on top of printing money? On top of gas prices? When you rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to go, and you have long distances to travel, and you need a dependable vehicle, and it costs you $120 a week, just in gas alone, then you have all your utilities…$200 something electric bill per month, $60 water bill, $65 sewage bill, $160 for groceries, then there is insurance for vehicles, $300 a month, vehicle payments, health insurance, home insurance, home mortgage, etc, etc, etc, etc. Not only that, but the federal taxes that are spent are going to people who don’t even work for a living.

I don’t know, I really don’t know. I don’t know what more federal and state governments expect.

What happens if working people don’t have anymore to spend on taxes? What then? They need every dollar they can just to survive … what if they run out of money? Where is the money going to come from to feed those living on the government teat?

I was always of the opinion that in America, you start at the bottom and work your way up, not have everything handed to you on a silver platter, no, you worked, and provided for yourself. Why now, does the government seem to think that they must think for us? And take from the rich, to give to the poor?

So-and-so wants what I have, but he doesn’t want to work for it? Why?

Usually when someone steals from us, some type of retribution must be paid to compensate for losses. Why are we treating the government any differently? Why do they get away with stealing from the middle class working man?

I think I have the short answer, but I would like to hear a detailed explanation…

Feel free to give your opinions in the comments as I will later today.

    Wow! The ignorance is impressive. Has he never heard the phrase “No taxation without representation”? We’ve taxed markets since before we were a country. And we’ve also regulated them.
