Facebook Friend Michael Smith wrote this, which is pertinent after Facebook reaction to yesterday’s post:
You have to love discussing tax cuts with a progressive. I can’t seem to get any of my Democrat friends to tell me how a cut in tax rates across the board amounts to “redistributing wealth upward” or how the GOP is stealing from the poor to give to the rich when the poor don’t pay income taxes to start with.
It’s about statolatry – the literal worship of government. Democrats literally love government the way Christians love Christ.
They ascribe all that is good and holy to the government.
Without government, how will we know what to do? Who will tell us what is right and what is wrong if there is nobody to make laws? WIthout government, who will protect us from each other?
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
Fear of smaller government is irrational and an indication of a lack of self-confidence. It is the ultimate form of low self esteem, that one cannot live without someone telling them how. One wonders if such a position is a result of actually wanting to be a member of the collective or just a fear of being alone.
