I am curious to know how many of the bloggers here that believe we are on the right track have ever run a business or met a payroll. How many of you have ever hired someone and paid them a wage and benefits based on your own market accomplishments? I have rarely met a progressive who remained such after they ran a business. The day to day pressures of administering a business while trying to minimize taxes and regulatory costs soon convinces them that progressive policies are little more than redistribution schemes.
So I suggest that all you liberals who like to postulate about grand macroeconomic schemes take the first easy step to test your political theories about this economy: Practice some actual micro economics...... start a business, hire some people, and let's see what you are made of. My bet is that none of you will take me up on this dare because you prefer not to really test your pet political arguments. Your game is to stand on the side line and hypothesize about grand schemes that sound so.....nice. But prove me wrong...get in the game. I suspect that most of you would run home crying after about a year of trying to run a business. You just don't have what it takes to run a for-profit business (a lot like our current President). And that's why your message has failed so badly in this mid-term election. Here's a simple thought for you folks: Buy what you can personally pay for and don't run up debt you can't handle. Home ownership isn't a right or an entitlement. Until you get that, you will always be just lost out there in never never dream land.
