Why Washington wants you econ-ignorant,

I keep preaching the basics of Capitalism, because the basics alone make people wise to the tricks of politicians and activists. One basic thing about wealth that many miss, is that wealth is created; it is not just sitting in the Vanderbilts' hands waiting to be given to whoever is lucky enough to be chosen. So if Washington isn't creating any wealth, where do they go to find created wealth to pay for their programs? They go to you and me the taxpayers. They take dollars away from us to give to who they believe should have a right to it.

Another basic truth that a lot don't know, is that outsourcing has been going on since the beginning of man. Outsourcing is trashed by folks who call it "taking jobs overseas", without ever considering just why outsourcing takes place. I could list a lot of reasons why it does take place but to save time suffice it to say that it is nothing new.When our Marines used the Navajo Indian's code to take Iwo Jima in WWII, you could say we outsourced jobs to the Navajo Indians that Americans could have done. But thanks to the Navajo Indian's and their language Major Howard Connor of the US Marines in WWII said: "Were it not for the Navajos, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima."
