The Contrasts are Stark

Paul Ryan defines them:

These actions starkly highlight the difference between the two parties that lies at the heart of the matter: Whether we are a nation that still believes in equality of opportunity, or whether we are moving toward an insistence on equality of outcome.

Obama threatens it:

“The one thing that we absolutely know for sure is that if we don’t work even harder than we did in 2008, then we’re going to have a government that tells the American people, ‘you are on your own,’” Obama told a crowd of 200 donors over lunch at the W Hotel.

And startup business owners prove it:

If start-up activity is the true engine of job creation in America, one thing is clear: our current educational system is acting as the brakes. Simply put, from kindergarten through undergraduate and grad school, you learn very few skills or attitudes that would ever help you start a business. Skills like sales, networking, creativity and comfort with failure.

No business in America — and therefore no job creation — happens without someone buying something. But most students learn nothing about sales in college; they are more likely to take a course on why sales (and capitalism) are evil.

Think of that. The goal of every family is to send their children to college. Yet college puts the brakes on their ambitions and instead instills in them attitudes of nannystatism and beliefs that a left wing (never a right wing) government is there to be helpful to all.

Civilizations don’t last forever and this one too will be gone if the way of life shared by the Obamaites manages to fully take this country. Luckily no matter how many liberals despise Ayn Rand even drummers don’t like paying more than their fair share.

  1. You could even pull this further down the road with the President’s new plan to first limit everyone’s college loan repayment amounts and to second forgive the remaining amount after 20 years — with the govt on the hook for the repayment or the banks having to absorb it all, there will be a) no limits on tuition increases — why would colleges even try? and b) no incentive to steer kids into learning sales instead of existential philosophy and 18th century English literature.

    FYI — your snow photo is (was?) upside down.
