Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren Video: One of the Great Teaching Tools on Liberalism
Posted on 09/25/2011 12:16:49 AM PDT by Nachum
RUSH: Okay, now you people know, you are well aware one of the reasons you listen is I know liberals. I know them. I know them like every square inch of my gloriously naked body. Dealing with liberals is like dealing with a one-armed lunatic. They're just gonna keep swinging. They're gonna keep fighting no matter what you do. They never go away. And I know what they're gonna do and why they're gonna do it before they do it, and people marvel at this. We have an opportunity now because of the utterance of Elizabeth Warren, she's running against Scott Brown for the United States Senate in Massachusetts. This was a seat that was at one time held by Senator Kennedy. She is the presumptive Democrat challenger.

Rush owes one-armed lunatics an apology!
She is the evil twin of Anita “Mao is one of my favorite philosophers” Dunn. Just as mentally ill and stupid regarding the truth, but slick as Bill Clinton in a class of female interns.
The roads are not built by the government. They are literally built by countless small businesses who buy trucks, hire employees and build their infrastructure to be able to lay asphalt, which they buy. They contract with other businesses, or with the government, to build the roads. They must meet requirements to fulfill their contract. If they do not they do not get paid. They take all of the risk, buy the equipment, hire the workers, pay for the supplies, to be able to sign a contract to build a road.
Where does the money come from to build the road? It comes from the road builder, the office builder, the home builder, the truck maker, the clothing and food and gas business and all of their employees. The government does not build the road. It facilitates the construction of the road by taking a portion of everyone’s income, the business owner, the laborer, the trucker, everyone who makes money based on their labor.
If that were the end of the story there would be no problem. If the government served the interests of those who make money so they could make more money there would be no problem. But that is not the end of the story.
The government decides every detail of the businesses activity and controls every detail of the laborers activity. Then the government decides how much of the earnings each business owner and each employee gets to keep. IOW the government controls, or tries to control, all of the activity in the business world, the private sector. The government is becoming the putative owner of the private sector, controlling its every detail.
What is the rationale for government takeover of the economy? It is we the people, the statist argues, who are the government. But the people are not the government. The government is an increasingly elitist, isolated cadre of managers who determine what the rest of us do based on their own interests. We the people need the government to get out of our hair and out of our pockets.
We will willingly give the government enough money to build roads, pay for civil protection and control our borders. We will keep the rest for ourselves. We are smart enough to decide how to spend our money. The government is not.
I've started putting it that way to liberals when I talk to them, and so far all I've gotten is stammering and a guilty laugh.
She wouldn't say that in Florida.
if not for class warfare, the ‘progressives’ would have nothing to stand on.
“We will not pay!” Greek ownership class
Aaaaarrrggghhhh!!!!! She’s another Jenny Grandtheft! After two terms of her administration running Michigan in to the ground, we can now look forward to her clone aiding and abetting 0baMao!
See my tagline...
It’s been there for about four days now.
The woman is amazingly stupid. Spewing this crap, while spending her entire career as a public employee. Besides, her deductive reasoning skills are severely lacking.
Your reply is so stellar, I will brazenly plagiarize it on another forum.
Let me tell you something i live in Ma. and this Lez Warren makes Martha Coakley look like Barry Goldwater, and she is leading in the polls in Ma. with the local medias help against Scott Brown.
This is what Scott Brown faces.This is what Mitt Romney faced.You people on this boared have called them RINOS and fairly so.But they are not RINOS as much as some other RINOS from some conservative states (John McCain for one).
Brazen away, Fellow FReeper. I was merely following Rush's marching orders to do for myself what he has taught us.
True, usually a government doesn’t operate a full fledged road building company, though it might own road repair equipment. It pays contractors for large projects.
And therefore what?
