Failure of long march to socialism

So let me get this straight. If we permit politicians, this time the Democrats, to increase the debt ceiling, which really is no ceiling at all with the ease and frequency at which it is breached, then we are less likely to default on our already unsustainable debt?

So, sinking ever deeper in to debt, with no real intention by Democrats to reverse the spending that they are committing us to spend in perpetuity, is a wise move to which we, the people, should acquiesce?

And if we permit them to extract ever more of the income from those "billionaires" who make more than $250,000 per year, and remove even more money from the productive side of the economy and throw it down the sinkhole of government, we'll get a stronger and more sustainable economy?

Those lessons may be taught in the halls of academe, but here in the real world, it's ever more obvious that Harvard theory doesn't match reality or reason. But the world of liberalism is not ruled by reason or reality. Envy and revenge seem to rule the roost on the left side of the aisle, and I would hazard a guess that more Americans are realizing the failure of the long march toward socialism that we've been subject to over the last 60 years, a few dabbles with conservatism notwithstanding.

At least for those of us not made to be addicted to the crack cocaine of government checks, the lesson has been learned.
