Distill it down and the reason I can’t stand liberals is they feel they’re entitled to things they have no right to.
From minimum wage to paid leave to union membership that creates a false and unnatural workplace environment; they’ve got it all wrong.
Liberal leaders see themselves (and justify their existence) as working for the little guy—the bottom feeders of the world; folks who need someone to stand up for them. Without that ‘cause’ these liberal leaders would be in the same boat as all the other losers in the world. They can’t compete with the doers, the creators and the leaders. They choose the anti-successful side and create a cottage industry off the backs of the masses.
Obama just attacked Governor Scott Walker for successfully challenging the unions in Wisconsin. Our lame-duck president feels the need to spend his precious time slamming the candidate who would best serve the country as our next president. Since Walker would look to undo all the socialist BS this nightmare of a current president has wrought, Obama is especially fearful of him.
In business the boss is the ‘boss’ for a reason. They are either the owner or chosen by the owner to successfully run the business. That takes skill, risk and responsibility; traits that should be compensated for.
Minimum wage is an evil construct. As an employer I should be able to set whatever wage I choose for any employee. If we let the market work as it should in capitalism, everyone will get paid commensurate with their worth to the company. When no one shows up for a job because the advertised wage is too low, employers will have to meet the market if they want someone to do the job. If the owner pays a wage the employee finds unsatisfactory they can either continue with an eye for promotion or leave the company for a better paying one.
There was a time when labor organizing served a purpose. During the industrial revolution unsafe working conditions and a huge pool of workers to choose from put the employer in an unhealthy position of excessive power. Unionization was inevitable and necessary to some degree. However, with the advent of ambulance chasing attorneys workers now have enough checks and balances from unsafe workplace environments—onerous union created rules are simply not needed.
The genius of a supply and demand system provides another set of checks and balances for the worker. But this is where the left and the right diverge. The left always thinks they are worth more than they are. I guess it’s human nature but it’s time to slap some sense into America. We must stop this notion that we should be compensated because we think we ought to be rather than by really earning it.
It all started with FDR and social security…people getting something for nothing. Sure, you should get every penny plus whatever interest is accrued that YOU put into the system…but not one penny more. Why? Because that penny is mine and you are not entitled to it.
