"Most liberals I know literally believe there is no end to the money in "the richest country in the world"."

You've pointed to another paradox of liberal mentality. While they think there is no end to the money that government can dole out, they also believe that capital is a zero sum commodity and everyone who becomes well off has done so by making someone else poor.

"....they also believe that....everyone who becomes well off has done so by making someone else poor."

From the perspective of the middle class...a capitalist talks you out of your dollars, while the government just takes your dollars without even a hello and gives it to their political cronies.

Both scenarios leave you just a little bit poorer. Only one gives you even a chance to keep your money without threat.

A middle class liberal (see "a fool and his money are soon departed") cannot detect this monumental distinction and it threatens his very freedom. This lack of insight is shrinking the middle class and making large numbers of life long, poorer, indoctrinated liberals out of average Americans.

Anyway...I no longer waste much time trying to figure out liberals. They have already screwed the country into the ground. Sadly, recovery may not happen in our lifetime....the socialist legislation just from this past year alone is incomprehensible and is so massive will never be erased and likely will barely be dented for many years to come. Anyone trying to make an honest living is likely a criminal according to our new "laws"....
