Your daily Letter to the Editor – Feb. 28, 2013
The president has come out again with the left-wing rhetoric that Republicans care only about rich people.
This is not only patently false, it is insulting. As a proud conservative, I couldn’t care less if people make a lot of money and become rich as long as it is done legally. If not, then the law will take care of them.
What I, and my conservative brothers and sisters, care about is the perpetuation of this great nation by the tried and true method of capitalism.
Wealth creates jobs, jobs create income, income results in taxes and taxes pay for military protection, roads, bridges and other necessary infrastructure. These are the things the Constitution says the federal government is responsible for. How is that a bad thing?
How else do the president and his left-wing minions think these things get done?
Apparently, they think that taking all the money from the rich will do it.
Then what happens?
There are no rich, so there are no jobs, so there are no taxes and the country goes bankrupt, which is apparently what the left wing wants, as this is the direction we are headed.
