“Lack of faith is the only thing we got to fear! If we have faith in the plans of our leaders, why, the plans will work and we’ll all have prosperity and ease and plenty. It’s the fellows who go around doubting and destroying our morale, and it’s they who’re keeping us in shortages and misery. But we’re not going to let them do it much longer, we’re here to protect the people…”
– Anonymous government representative in Atlas Shrugged
Why does the above quote bother me? Because this is exactly the feeling and rhetoric going around Washington today. If you are still thinking “so what?” well, that government depicted in Atlas Shrugged is very, very evil.
Oh, and for those of you who wish Obama the best, well, he just got his plan passed. Now my children can thank you for an estimated 80% tax rate they will be saddled with to cover this nonsense.
Have a nice day!
