I had an ancestor who fought in the American Revolution for whom I was accepted into the Sons of the American Revolution. He was wealthy and used his wealth to contribute to the new American government we call Uncle Sam, in the means of financial support for the war effort and INFRASTRUCTURE work. He was not alone as there were others who did the same. In other words, in the late 1800s, there were those who fought for freedom from a monarchy with a mentally ill king, who thought as JFK did when he was inaugurated as president: “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” He did NOT think as idiot charismatic jackass Ronald Reagan said in his inauguration: “the problem is the government.” Reagan’s idiotic words apparently inspire more idiotic stupid people and those fat cats of wealth than do the words of JFK. The government, like any human institution, is not perfect, but it is better than big business fat cats and their dictatorship run with the help of monopoly and supply side trickle-down economics.
Infrastructure and healthcare for all is an example of achieving “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” There is proof that the theorist of capitalism, Adam Smith, wrote in books like Wealth of Nations and Theory of Moral Sentiment in support of ideas based on JFK’s statement, not that of Ronald Reagan. Why are Americans being so stupid – like Fred Akshar – and insisting on lying to the public and then run for office as a law enforcement officer? Here is a theorist of capitalism saying things which support infrastructure (including the building of a big infrastructure project in New York for which Akshar idiots and others have benefited over the ages and was scoffed at as being “Clinton’s Ditch,” or the Erie Canal; development of commerce due to infrastructure).
America is falling behind the communist Chinese, due to the lack of infrastructure work in the USA which also includes building business based on R&D. I must say, then, that if you support Akshar and the idiotic Trumpicans, you support the communist Chinese. But wait. Aren’t the communist Chinese socialist authoritarianism and denial of capitalism? So… supporters of Akshar and Trump and Trumpicans are supporters of socialist autocracy, not the ability to work within a capitalist democracy and achieve goals for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” To get their way, they lie through their teeth. What an insult to upstate New York because they utilize the lack of education about what capitalist democracy is truly about in order to enforce Putin and Chinese communist autocracy.
Wake up NY Upstate Southern Tier to what is truly happening here. The real problem is not government, but liar, liar pants on fire ruthless business dictators of supply-side trickle-down economics by way of monopoly. That, my friends and fellow Americans who are sick and tired of efforts of lawyer-politicians to pit American against American, is the problem. The REAL problem, too, is systemic racism by dictators of white supremacy.
