I don’t watch televised political entertainment. I worked in politics far too long to have a stomach for that anymore. But I see photos of the Democrats’ recent debates and can’t help thinking they look like desperate contestants on a TV game show. Instead of being there to win money, though, they’re competing to see who can promise to steal the most money from you — to give to someone else. Such people who preach about the virtues of government giving money to all sorts of people who they claim they want to help never seem to understand that governments have no money of their own. The only way to hand money to one person is to steal it from someone else who has earned it. Taking money from a person without his consent is theft, whether it’s done by a common mugger or by a politician. Something which is immoral when done by one person doesn’t become virtuous when done by politicians calling themselves a government. Theft is still theft. It’s immoral. Modern Democrats and Republicans are united in their willingness to endorse this theft. Republicans just don’t want quite as much of it. Both positions are evil.
