Why the naysayers lose,

Liberal politicians have for years labeled rich people in America as greedy and evil. Politicians who make those attacks lose elections. (ex. John Kerry) Bill Bennett gave a simple explanation for this on his radio program. He said the reason attacking the rich doesn't work in America is because most parents believe their children are going to be rich. Bennett is correct; only capitalism can offer such hope and Americans thankfully understand that.

Don't tell me it's not contagious,

I've always said that it is human nature to be a Capitalist. Once a person is given freedom, that person begins to think like a Capitalist. Thanks to America's influence in the world, more people are beginning to see that Capitalism provides a bright future for any nation. Canada thankfully has elected a conservative to run their country (Stephen Harper); I have no doubt that America's success under Capitalism is responsible for such a thing. Freedom is contagious!

Only under Capitalism,

We hear a lot about "racism" and how it holds certain people back. Racism can't hold anyone back in a Capitalist economy. In the 1960's many black actors faced racism on the entertainment market. Black actor Duane Jones famous for his lead role in "The Night of the Living Dead" beat the odds however. Suprisingly his role in the movie was originally going to be given to a white male truck driver. But when Duane Jones auditioned for the role, his work ethic proved to be better than any of the actors George Romero could find for the part. Effort pays off under Capitalism....even when the odds are against you!!

Politics vs. Reality,

Liberals often say that with the right politicians in Washington, our troubles will go away. They say the right social programs and political moves will end racism, oppression, and poverty. Look at what liberal columnist Maureen Dowd said on Meet The Press on August 8, 2004:
"..the neocons wanted a utopia in Iraq."
All conservatives wanted for Iraq was freedom; in 2006 liberals still think a utopia is possible in the United States.

Honesty about poverty,

A reader of my blog asked for the facts on poverty. Just click on Walter Williams below and read his article.

The embarrassment of big government,

If I were to list all the reasons why a overgrown government is bad, this post would be so long and boring you wouldn't care to read it. I can tell you one of the many reasons to oppose a strong government is because such a government encourages thuggery. In fact big government is responsible for so many people saying "all politicians are crooked". The liberal politicians (Democrat and Republican) who often talk about helping poor people, steal money from people who have it in order to give it to others who have less. Doesn't that sound like thuggery?

Capitalism honors those who create,

"If people only knew how hard I work to gain my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all." -Michelangelo

It has become popular to attack "big business" today. People often accuse companies like Wal-Mart of exploiting workers and making "excessive profit". But the people doing the complaining never stop to think about why Wal-Mart and other major corporations are successful. The easy answer is...hard work; the successful companies work hard at pleasing the customer. Otherwise the company can't become successful, at least not in a Capitalist country like the United States. If you will be creative enough to form ideas to please others, you will become successful no matter how poor you are. Wal-Mart is a good example; it isn't magic.

America's Anchorman/ Mayberry's Mayor

I think our much loved hero Rush Limbaugh might have been the mayor of Mayberry in a past life...

Tell the whole truth,

Did you know that poor people in America usually become rich at some point in their lives? It's true. So if we give a government check to a poor person, he is likely to get dependent on that check and miss out on his chance to be rich. Knowing that, do you now think government welfare helps or hurts poor people?

Paving the way,

Soon to be Supreme Court judge Samuel Alito is in the news now; his appointment is good news. With more conservative judges in our Supreme Court we can expect more freedom from government. We have an out of control tax system in America but it didn't form over night. Politicians and judges have gradually moved us towards it; thanks to Americans realizing the importance of economics, George Bush was re-elected and he is appointing judges that will give American citizens the freedoms that George Washington had in mind. Capitalists are paving the way to a better America.

Embracing change,

Capitalism welcomes change. Why? Because change is always for the better in the long term. In man's early attempt to fly all sorts of funny looking machines were made that couldn't fly, but those failed inventions helped man learn the right way to build a airplane. Change doesn't have to be scary; in reality it is liberating. Look at the America of the 1950's and compare the technology of that time to today's technology. That alone should explain it plainly.

A divide among conservatives,

George W. Bush is thankfully pushing to make tax cuts permanent. He will have no problem getting support from a majority of conservatives. Unfortunately some conservatives don't grasp the basics of economics. Such conservatives are very much against free trade. Pat Buchanan is a good example, he supports tariffs and calls for an end to American trade with countries like China. Buchanan fails to realize that it is misleading to say "America trades with China"; it could be correctly stated by saying "American citizens trade with Chinese citizens". Stopping free trade would restrict individual freedom among citizens. Buchanan also fails to realize that trade restrictions do not have a history of defeating oddball governments in other countries.

Capitalism = miracles,

With the tragic news of the 12 dead coal miners in West Virginia, we have a shred of good news.....there was one survivor. Who is responsible for this miracle? I would say it was Capitalism. Thanks to the technology that Capitalism has given us, rescuers were able to get to the miner who was buried deep in the ground. How long would it have taken picks and shovels to do the same thing? Let us thank God for the gift of Capitalism.
