Job creation and taking money that isn’t yours.

Using taxes to ‘create’ jobs. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Or does it?

Let’s say we encourage everyone to steal a tv set. Then, the victim’s insurance company will pay for the victim to buy a new one, causing more durable goods to be sold, thus bolstering the economy. Ridiculous, right? What is the difference in taking tax money to ‘create’ jobs? None. Zero. Zip. It’s STILL stealing. To argue the point of a greater common good you have to believe………and this is the destroyer of ALL arguments for more taxes………that big government has a higher moral and ethical standard than the whole of it’s citizenry. That’s not a winnable argument. Ever.

There are so many other reasons that we can get into, but the ‘common good’ argument is what’s used the most…….and as we can see here it is completely invalid. Every time. All the time.

    “The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.

    Precisely, dzynrbob. Perfect metaphor for the Democratic rationalization.
