“...how much money people truly need to be happy”

...I can’t begin to tell you how much I despise this statement. When this little blurb is belched out by some lib, does anyone ever ask the twirp, “where will the money go that you don’t want?” “If you have a job making $50,000 per year and that’s ‘enough’ for you, do you turn down raises?” “If so, where do you think your money will go?” “What happens when you have an unexpected expense, like your car gets totaled and insurance won’t pay? or a health expense you didn’t plan for?” “Why must we all try and figure out how much we need?” “Do you think Henry Ford would’ve been so industrious had he been given a limited salary?” “Well, As%^ole”!

Interesting. That was the line that completely stuck out for me, and it symbolizes the difference between conservatism and liberalism.

Conservatives don’t think it is anyone else’s business what makes you happy.

Liberal’s think that they (or the government) should be able to define what makes you happy.
