Day388 Wednesday 09/21/11

ran 3.5 miles
I cannot think of one single person I know who would want to sit and listen to a multi-millionaire entrepreneur explain to them why it is important for the federal government to not take so much of his or her money. I don’t know anyone who would have the patience to hear someone who lives in a mansion and appears to not have a care in the world, which is not at all true, explain that when the rich get richer wealth naturally redistributes itself and that when the rich get robbed wealth introverts itself and sits under mattresses while the struggling social class’s burden to find work increases.

Redistribution of wealth is a natural process. It is a subtle trickling and not a forced downpour. Even America’s federal government cannot force a square peg with inch-long sides into a circular hole with an inch-wide diameter. It just doesn’t work, much like Barack Obama’s tax increases will not work, especially in the face of a crumbling economy and depressing unemployment numbers that refuse to budge.

I am only one man and I am an average man. I am not rich. There is a very good chance I never will be. And that is just fine. But as I type these words and tell you that redistribution of wealth at the scale Barack Obama seeks through tax increases is wrong, wrong, wrong, you don’t have to take it from me or from someone far more enterprising than myself. It is strictly common sense. The critical condition our economy is in and the stubborn unemployment we face, just to name a couple of things, combined with the ludicrous idea that taking even more money from the people who create jobs, invest, and spend will somehow make things better is an illusion.

Our president has failed so miserably that this is his final desperate option and desperation tends to suck out all rationality from one’s ability to problem-solve. For starters, get rid of this ridiculous, pie in the sky health care law, drill, unleash the private sector, drill some more, and just simply get the heck out of the way from the progress you are stifling.

Someone Else, 2012!

927.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day23.
