The most progressive state in the union is California. They are actually proud of it.
1). 1/5 of the population lives in poverty
2). Most homeless of any state.
3). Biggest discrepancy between haves and have nots. Shrinking middle class
4). Around 2.4 million illegals.
5). Around 72% of illegals get some type of welfare.
6). California citizens have 35% receiving welfare.
Why would some Americans want this plague to spread?
FOR PREPARING OUR DEFENSE WITH MAXIMUM EFFORT !!
A nation can be in just one of three possible states of affairs.
First, a nation can be at war, in an existential struggle, using all of its resources to survive.
To survive such an embattled state of affairs, a nation must continually prepare its defense.
Next, a nation can be preparing its defense with maximum effort by using all of its available resources to increase and to improve its infrastructure and its most important resource, its people, whose health and education are essential and can be improved most surely by providing free healthcare for all and free, expense-paid education for all. Such preparation of defense needs maximum Congressional spending, which needs a maximum prevention of inflation, which needs adequate taxation of disposable income but minimum taxation of non-disposable income, which needs adequate and steeply progressive federal income tax rates.
Such a provident nation would be the most prepared for an embattled state of affairs.
Finally, a nation can be preparing its defense but with LESS than a maximum effort to increase and improve its infrastructure, NOT providing free health care for all and free, expense-paid education for all, being more concerned with budget deficits and tax relief for the rich and their heirs while mired in idleness, poverty, trafficking, addiction, crime, and mass incarceration.
Such an improvident nation (ours!) is NOT prepared for an embattled state of affairs.
Voters who oppose free healthcare for all and free, expense-paid education for all, including trade schools for workers, guarantee that we will have the shortages of skilled labor that cause inflation and the military recruiting shortages that weaken our defense. Their votes against maximum Congressional spending guarantee deficient infrastructure and destructive poverty, yielding a sub-optimal defense that threatens our survival from an embattled state of affairs.
Voters should understand that the provident nation is not only the most prepared nation but also the most prosperous nation because maximum Congressional spending relative to federal tax revenue yields the largest annual budget deficit, which is exactly equal to the sum of our annual trade deficit plus our net annual private savings. That sum represents our nation’s consumption of foreign goods plus its after-tax earnings, a source of investment for growth. Thus, that sum defines and measures our prosperity, that which not only trumps all taxes but also sustains our social health, perhaps the most important element of our defense.
So, preparing our defense with maximum effort is also our best economic policy, as shown by the decades of prosperity resulting from Congress’ huge World War II deficit spending, mostly on defense workers’ income saved as “War Bonds” that were eventually cashed in for homes, cars, and kids, creating prosperous new suburbs everywhere. For the details, ask “Granny”!
Voters must choose the state of affairs their grandchildren will inherit. May they choose well!
