Frankenstein Government carried the following quote yesterday from Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona. Sheriff Joe understands “liberalism”.
A “Liberal Paradise ” would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only Law Enforcement has guns. And believe it or not, such a place does indeed exist …… It’s called prison.
It shouldn’t be difficult for the average person to understand that the more a government does for its citizens, the less they are allowed to do for themselves.
Life, liberty, and property rights are what we conservatives/libertarians believe to be important. All we want from governments is that they protect those rights. Ah but, all those things Sheriff Joe listed are very alluring to the average person and that is why we are in the minority. Of the 50 to 55 million people who vote Republican in presidential elections, how many are conservatives/libertarians? Probably not more than half. Here’s a shocker. According to The Pew Research Center/USA Today poll, 8% of Republicans said there is a “good chance” and 17% said there was “some chance” they would vote for her in 2016. In other words, 25% of the Republicans interviewed by Pew said there was, at least, “some chance” they would vote for Hillary in 2016.
When we run out of enough taxpayers to pay for Sheriff Joe’s liberal prisons, then what?
Well that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
