Doing Work the South Koreans and Chinese Won't Do

Anothter illegal immigration problem sprouts up. And another demonstration of the final result of World Socialism. I heard Dennis Prager ask the other day how one can look at places like North Korea and Cuba (and Cambodia and Albania and...) then turn around and vote for people who want to put Government in charge of everything. His point was about taxation, about how as tax rates got higher there was less prosperity in a society, not more; but it seemed an interesting bridge to take while on the subject of Marx and his wonderful theories.

Isn't it amazing that America prospered--grew like a weed on steroids--for 143 years without taxes--operating with as little government interference as had ever been undertaken by man. It didn't take pure Socialism nearly that long to wreck the economies of Eastern Europe, Cuba, Socialist Africa, and the Korean peninsula. The only reason China hasn't gone under is that they have suddenly discovered Religion (that would be the one founded by Adam Smith...).

Funny also how we bounced right out of that recession after Bush cut taxes, and now the markets seem to be spooked that another Socialist will get elected here and let those tax cuts expire.

They had wonderful theories about planetary movement before Galileo too. The problem is that those theories weren't
