Random thoughts. There’s working hard and there’s working smart. Being lucky and being good.
Most of us would like to think that we’re both lucky and good, hardworking and smart.

I can see a lot of hardworking, smart conservatives—lucky and good at what they do—dropping out. Refusing to play the game. Little Galts, for at least four years or until the SHTF, and now it’s not a question of whether but when.
I don’t feel “lost” but I’m not working harder so I can pay more over to Uncle Obama so he can “redistribute” it.

Ditto what you said. I lost my job last year and brought in almost half of what we made. However, we were smart enough to put a decent amount away for a “rainy” day. Why should I go back and be considered rich enough to support the slugs with 9 kids? I don’t think we’ll fall for that again.
