In Paris, the beautiful parks and avenues are the result of a thriving economy -- not the cause. But liberals believe that if you create the appearance of prosperity, the real thing must necessarily follow.
It's what drives them to constantly increase welfare. They mistake the trappings of the middle class [house, cars, education] for the cause. Instead, though, they are the effect of a good work ethic and solid morals.
Putting the eternally-poor into decent housing and giving them a lower-middle-class income will not make them middle class. If anything, it will encourage them to become even more slothful.
Northeastern libs in cities like Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, etc. drink this stuff like fine wine, though.
I think your post is EXCELLENT & expresses what I have been thinking & could not quite put into words. Thanks!
Same thing with Obama/Democrats obsession with high speed rail. The thriving economy should come first to justify it. But the Dems think you rev up the states economy by building the high speed rail first. They are that stupid in addition to these projects being a payoff to their union buddies
