As I’ve said many times, I really like and appreciate Friedman’s books and lectures on free-market economics, but his Monetarism (which is a darling of the Keynesians) and backs a central bank, is as anti-thetical to free-market principles as you can get.

Yes sir....and you put it in a way I could not do so as clearly

The difference between Friedman/Keynes is not so much.

Attention whore 101: If you want to bring attention to your ignorant article or book, simply mention the words "Rush Limbaugh"

There are probably seven or eight Freepers that you could say the same thing about.

I was on such a thread a couple of days ago. I was the only one defending Rush, while the bashers seemed say that anyone who liked what Rush said is dumb. I said that since there were so few of them, that they must mean that every Freeper is dumb. They pointed out that they outnumbered me. I counted and there were FIVE of them against me. I had to laugh.

A little more nuanced that mere “emotion.” Try Lust, Greed, Power mad and other vices some even nameless.

I did find out how to shut up a leftist. I said that we currently borrow $.40 out of every dollar the government spends. I asked “How do you suppose that’s going to end?”

DEFUND socialists and their collectives. DISMANTLE them when necessary. DESTROY them when necessary. The time for talking is ovah.

Rush Limbaugh continues to inform, motivate, and inspire on a daily basis after 25 years in his work. He is the one “must listen to” educator on the radio.

“...couldn’t get by the Calc 3 course...”

I’d bet $5 that 90% couldn’t even pass Algebra 101.

“Tom” is an imbecile that can’t even persuade the choir to his position because he’s illiterate. This article is a waste of time.

Do you have any idea what I’m talking about?
Do you understand basic economics?
Do you understand the difference between the Austrian economists and the Monetarists who are Keynesians and who provided the theoretic cover for the central bankers to run this country up to the very edge of the cliff of economic collapse?

If not, let me know. I’d be happy to inform you.

Signed,
A free-market supporting, freedom-loving American patriot who understands that Monetarism is the fiscal policy behind the Keynesians and the academic cover for the central bankers.

Please do. Let’s get started. Begin with your hypothesis that monetarists are Keynesians.

That thought is enough to make your skin crawl.

Tom doesn't seem to understand...today's “progressives” couldn't care less what Milton Friedman said.THEY COULDN'T CARE LESS.And the typical Rat voter can barely understand what Al Sharpton says to them...are they gonna have the first clue what Friedman stood for?

You don’t listen to Rush, do you? You seem to know only his caricature.

I think this guy just graduated from poli sci, and he took some econ where he read Friedman, and now he’s out to fix us with his brand new knowledge and wisdom. His dad should kick his ass.
