Sent to me for distribution
People who don’t speak the same language. Who practice different religions. Who might hate one another if they ever met. When you visit a store and buy this pencil, you are — in effect — trading a few minutes of your time for a few seconds of time from all those thousands of people.
There was no “Pencil Czar” sending out orders from Washington. It was the magic of the free market. The impersonal operation of a market system that brought them together and got them to cooperate to make this pencil, so that you could have it for a few pennies.
How many of the Democrats’ despised “millionaires and billionaires” were created as this pencil came into existence? Do the employees of the steel mill care? The saw manufacturer? The buyer of the pencil? Of course not.
In the formulation of the hard left Democrat party, the manufacture and distribution of pencils would be administered by a “Czar” and a centralized, federal agency. A few masterminds, like Obamacare’s health advisory board, would try to manage and control thousands of voluntary, individual interactions. And we know from history that it simply can’t be done.
We must call Obama and the Democrats’ incessant drive for centralized government — and their class-warfare rhetoric — what it is: a new branding of the old Marxist philosophies, i.e., “Progressivism”. It’s just a different name for the same failed ideology that spreads misery and poverty where ever it is implemented.
The modern Democrat Party should be called what it is: the party of Marx. The Party of Unconstitutionality. The Party of Economic Misery and Failure. And it must be stopped — quickly — if this Republic is to survive.
