Let’s Create Jobs: The Liberal Way!

It never ceases to amaze me just how arrogant liberals can be. For example, in their world it is the all-powerful Government that creates jobs in America. We see this thinking in the President's latest, ahem, budget proposal. We hear this nonsense from the President on down the line that we must "invest" in America to create jobs. What these brilliantly, smart, brainy, intelligent nitwits fail to realize is that it is DEMAND that creates jobs NOT subsidizing inefficient nonsense like wind power and pixie dust. It is DEMAND that creates markets, giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to profit (and thus motivation) by satisfying that demand. Rather than learning from the many mistakes in trying to manipulate the market, liberals keep banging their heads against the same old solar panels in their quest to control our lives. In their mind it is possible to engineer markets to some utopian result that will make the world a better place.

Put simply, liberals think that they are smarter than the markets. It is their belief (as we see through their inexhaustible attempts) that they are soooo smart that they can actually create markets that don't exist and nobody wants and make it viable in the marketplace. How can they do this you ask? Well, they are clever enough to know that a battery powered bomb car that only goes about 15 miles on a charge would not fare to well in the market. So they rig the market in their favor. They artificially create demand through regulatory intervention and subsidies, thus effectively satisfying demand that they inefficiently created. While at the same time, they suppress innovation that doesn't comply with their world view (Big Oil for example). This in effect lets them pick the winners and losers as they see fit (or who gives them the highest campaign contributions). The end result of course is job creating capital stripped from the markets (the most efficient force in the universe) and "invested" in some hare-brained scheme like Solyndra or the rolling toxic bomb know as the Chevy Volt.

So, on one side you have the ivory tower elite who have never signed the front of a paycheck - and on the other you have hundreds of millions of people making rational decisions for themselves and theirs. I think you can do the math as to who is better equipped to make the right choice.


  1. "A picture is worth a thousand words" - Napoleon

    Your essay describes the picture quite accurately.

  2. Great post!

    I hear people using the phrase "smarter than the markets". For me, this a euphemism at best. Perhaps it should be rephrased as "smarter than the free will of 300+ million consumers." For me, this puts it into better context that collectivists believe they are smarter than the nation in it's entirety. Let's call a spade a spade, right? I believe this allows us to better see the arrogance to which you refer.


    1. Brilliantly put! I'm officially adopting that logic, and never giving you credit for it Mr. Anonymous. Awesome!

  3. Be very careful anonymous.....phrases such as "call a spade a spade" or "it's as clear as black and white" are well known racist code phrases, and as such, should not be uttered in today's world.
