Every structure has a foundation which sustains it. With liberals, this foundation is class warfare. The recent cries to “tax the rich” to solve our economic problems are a case in point. Current tax rates are high enough so that raising them more stalls growth and produces less revenue. This is not an opinion, it is a proven fact. Yet they keep pounding the drum, pandering to one of the basest of human emotions: envy.

In the 17th century, they used to put leeches on their sick patients to suck out the “evil humors” in the blood. If the patient died, they bemoaned the fact and reasoned that they should have used even more leeches. Sadly, reasoning such as this still prevails when it comes to taxes.

Remember over two years ago, the Obama administration telling us unemployment would rocket above 8 percent if we did NOT pass the stimulus package? This is the same group that now wants to tax ourselves into prosperity. We do not need to see any more incompetence from this group to see that liberalism has been a colossal failure. Our problems are a result of excessive liberalism over the years promoted by Democrats and many establishment Republicans. It’s funny to see them call tea party advocates “extreme” while denying that a $15 trillion debt is extreme.

We need more conservatism, and the tea party is the only hope of getting it.
