Jack Welch, former CEO of GE was on the news this morning.
Tax policies and business climate in the state of Rhode Island depict what would happen in the United States if the Obama tax plan takes hold.

Rhode Island has the highest business taxes in the nation, and as such no business wants to be in Rhode Island. M

Not according to Adam Smith. By pursuing my own self interest (?happiness?), I find the employment (work) that I am most happy performing and as such am able to contribute to society in a fashion that is most productive to society and happiest for me.

As Adam Smith described:

“Every individual is continually exerting himself to find out the most advantageous employment for whatever capital he can command. It is his own advantage, indeed, and not that of society, which he has in view. But the study of his own advantage naturally, or rather necessarily, leads him to prefer employment which is most advantageous to the society . . . . [H]e intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention. Nor is it always the worse for the society that it was no part of it. By pursuing his own interest he frequently promotes that of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it.” — Adam Smith, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, bk. IV, ch. 2, 397, 399 (D.D. Raphael ed., 1991) (1776).

Selfishness is a virtue. Thank you Hugh Hewitt for the reminder, and thank you Ayn Rand.

Also referred to on the Townhall site is this Milton Friedman interview by Phil Donohue:

Nearly 700 Million Dollars in campaign funds and over 300 Million in outside indirect support. Obama appears to be buying the presidency; current price take over 1 Billion Dollars. With so much spent, how could the race still be so close.

A capitalist will sell you the rope to hang him with.
— Lenin

And hung we will get if he buys the presidency.

So where is all of this money coming from?

If you have been drinking the Kool-Aid then you probably believe that millions of Americans made small donations in a ground swell of support.

The Obama campaign is using credit card companies from out of this country where the laws against fraud, accountability, and tracking are lax and in some cases untraceable. His campaign is getting repeat contributions far exceeding the legal limits from the same credit cards, using different names each time. The fraud is amazing, read on…

Is voting for Obama really making a change? Let’s just look at the college educations of the last 3 presidents in comparison to Barack Obama.

George H Bush – Yale University
Bill Clinton – Yale University & Oxford
George W Bush – Yale University & Harvard University

Barack Obama – Harvard University

John McCain – United States Naval Academy

Which one do you suppose is the real change?

At the end of World War I, Germany was both a democracy and a country that was heavily in debt where inflation was out of control and severe social problems were a grave concern. Adolf Hitler promised to CHANGE his Germany and restore the “respect” that many Germans thought was so unjustly taken from them.
 
Funny how history repeats itself.
  

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future

Rock the Vote

Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
— Adolf Hitler

From the Hitler playbook.

It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
— Adolf Hitler

I am not saying that Barack Obama is like Adolf Hitler. I am saying that the campaign tactics being employed are like those Hitler employed over the youth of Germany in the 1930’s.
The usage of fear, emotion, propaganda, and religious symbolism is all too similar.
Of course there could be another reason for the blind devotion of his followers.
