Give a man enough rope,

Most of you are familiar with the saying "give a man enough rope and he will hang himself". Thats exactly what is happening to today's anti-capitalists. A good example just happened in my home state of Tennessee. The Tenncare Program was recently cancelled (Tenncare was medical care for the poor at the expense of Tennessee taxpayers) after the governor and the people of Tennessee realized the cost of socialized medicine was too much. Now before the governor reached that conclusion he proposed huge cuts in the program to save it, but the Tenncare advocates drove a hard bargain and refused any cuts to the program. So as a result those advocates now have no Tenncare. So the greed of the anti-capitalists is what led to their loss. Had they been willing to accept some of the governor's cuts they could still have their program; by being too greedy with taxpayers money they suffered the consequences. Give a man enough rope and he will hang himself.
