Here’s an odd paradox for you: Conservatives are always accused of racism, yet I don’t know a conservative that would not work their butt off and then vote for a Republican presidential ticket of Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. I love those two guys.
Thomas Sowell just wrote a two part article called, A Cynical Process (part one is here, part two is here). It’s a must-read. Part one deals with unions (mostly with the public sector unions, plus the Obama administrations desire to allow unions to basically threaten people into unionizing). Part two deals with the way politicians (particularly leftist politicians) do themselves good by making people dependent on government handouts while actually doing harm to the prospect of larger prosperity, such as Obama creating an unfriendly business climate that slows job growth while giving people more unemployment and food stamps.
Walter Williams reveals something very interesting about “1%”, and the Occupy movement in his article, America’s Two Faced Liberals. It turns out that of the ten richest counties in the country, many of them surround Washington DC, and seven of ten are very much supporters of Democrats (interesting… given their location, one might surmise that these are counties which contain the people of the progressive elite who want to run the monster state that takes care of we poor, stupid citizens who can’t fend for ourselves in a free economy). His information on the identities of those arrested in the Occupy movement last winter is priceless. (hint: it turns out that they weren’t really downtrodden youth).
Read them all.
