Brilliant. This video has earned a special place as the perfect argument against Barack Obama and his liberal counterparts. As much as we feebly attempt to make sense of national affairs and our economy, and argue about what paths and what futures we should lead America toward---along comes this guy and he distills all of the chaos into a perfect perspective through the lens of children. 

We were once those little kids in the video above. That candy was the currency we now know as money. And, as fun as Halloween is, it is still work through a child's eyes. It is hard work for a reward they feel they earned. They are hustling to get to as many houses as they can to fill their bags up as much as they can, just as we adults hustle to seize as many opportunities as we can to fill our savings as much as possible. It is no different. 

The world through those children's eyes and the candy they earn tonight is no different than the realities before us and the hours you worked today. If you really want to prepare your child for the mature world he is only years from embarking upon, take 30 percent of his candy each Halloween and give it to other kids who have less. If your kid gets 10 Christmas gifts or 20 Easter eggs, take 3 gifts and 6 eggs and explain to him or her that they automatically have to give them to someone else.

To really put things into perspective, from one adult to another, on average, you do not begin earning money for the work you perform until mid-April of every year. Every day you work for the first 3 1/2 months of every year is for federal, state, and local government. We give them more than the first three months of every penny we earn and here they are asking for more after the federal government has plummeted into $16 trillion of debt.

Those kids have every right to be pissed and so do you.
