I’ve always hated the phrase “compassionate conservative”, which implies that conseratives lack compassion. The liberals want to give the indigent all of the goose’e golden eggs, and will even kill the goose to feed them. Then what? When the productive elements in the private sector have been taxed into indigency, and the borrowing/printing of money collapses and our currency is worthless, how will the “compassionate” provide for the dependent class? Will they even care when their tables are empty, too?
The spin in the liberal media is that tax cuts amounts to the government giving money away to those who least need it (depriving those that need the government's money the most). The liberal media spin entirely ignores the fact that tax cuts allow those earning money to retain more of it. This type of misrepresentation and misinformation is rampant throughout the lamestream media.
