LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Texas a blue state?

Texas a blue state?

Dear Editor,

If blue states are so wonderful, why are folks moving to red states? When Democrats get control of all 58 states that Senator Obama campaigned in, where will folks go to make a living?

The liberals say that the rich need to pay more taxes, they don’t need all that money. Can you tell me why you go to a rich person to ask for a job? We need more money for infrastructure, roads and bridges and the like, and more for education, police and fire fighters, which is true. It seems to me that the poor use these benefits and should at least pay a minimum tax, instead of getting an earned income tax refund.

I suppose that I have been misinformed about what earn means, I think that unearned income tax refund is a better use of the language. The rich invest their money in companies, and create more jobs, but who wants a job, when you can take advantage of the ignorant programs that are available. You can make more money by not working.

Other nations have tried the stupid idea of giving goodies, in exchange for votes, and they all ended up in the trash pile. When you rob Peter to subsidize Paul, you can always count on the support of Paul. The problem, is you will eventually end up with more Paul’s than you can support.

I was watching a video of Dr. Thomas Sowell and he stated that he had been a Marxist. He was asked what changed his mind, and this is what he said: “I went to work for the government, and soon realized that there is no way that government can make good on all of the promises that it makes.”

There is a debt ceiling debate coming up soon, and the Democrats are saying that Republicans want to shut down the government. That is a bald-face lie, what conservatives want is government that doesn’t waste money. I’m sure that those that pay attention have heard of the lavish parties that government employees engage in when attending seminars.
