We can’t be a party of small government, free markets and low taxes while supporting bailouts and nationalizing industries, which lead to big government, socialism and high taxes at the expense of individual liberty and freedoms.
I couldn’t agree more. Of course, we’re in tough times right now. But prolonging the death of dinosaur industries by making taxpayers pay for inefficiencies and policies that worked in 1955 will sink our country. If a company can’t turn a profit, there are about 1000 small companies that will spring up to fill their shoes.
Next on the list for bailouts? Hospitals. This will be followed a few years later by the health insurance industry. Obviously, their hopes of becoming health care managers to turn higher profits simply hasn’t worked. So, they’ll be turning to the government for a bailout once premiums become too large for the average American to fathom (due to all the middlemen management). And therein lies the reason why the health insurance companies donated all their money to Obama rather than McCain. Because Obama will “bail them out” in the form of an even more inefficient, government single-payer bureaucracy that’s focused on pensions rather than profits.
