WHAT MYSTIFIES LIBERAL DEMOCRATS? IT IS THE REASON YOU NEED TO VOTE

Want to find out what mystifies Liberal Democrats? See what they say. In her post, Governor’s mistake,  cites an editorial she wrote, The governor’s untimely mistake.

Which makes the governor’s refusal to apply for $60 million in federal funding for prekindergarten all the more mystifying. (from here)

Why did Governor McDonnell refuse to apply for $60 million dollars in Federal funds? The answers are in the comments on Paige’s post and in one of the articles she cites, Virginia won’t seek federal pre-K funding

  • The funds come with costly Federal mandates.
  • Accepting these funds would expand the reach of Washington bureaucrats and regulations in Virginia.
  • There is no guarantee the Federal Government will continue funding the new programs. Accepting these temporary funds commits Virginia taxpayers to fund permanently a new program.  

So what mystifies Paige? It seems she cannot understand why McDonnell does not want spend our money like a Democrat.

Consider Paige’s explanation. It is all about a supposed problem. 

Experts will tell you that investing in pre-K education benefits us all, as we save the costs of repeating grades or building prisons. Economists will tell you that investments in education are a source of economic growth.

Recognizing the value of pre-K, many parents have opted to enroll their children in such programs, often at significant cost and sacrifice. It is the parents who lack the resources, knowledge or both whose children are not able to participate and who spend their lives trying to catch up to their peers. These are the children who fall further and further behind, often dropping out before they even graduate from high school. (from here)

What Paige ignores are all the problems created by her solution. Her supposed benefit, government-run pre-K education, has costs. Because money does not grow on trees, Virginia taxpayers would have to pay for all those costs.

What mystifies Liberal Democrats is the advantage we all gain when we each spend our own money — the money we earn — for our own benefit. When spend our own money on the things we want, we make a conscious effort to evaluate both the costs and the benefits. On the other hand, when we spend other people’s money for the benefit of other people, we don’t pay much attention at all. That leads to huge inefficiencies.

Consider voter turnout.  On Tuesday, November 8, we can expect a voter turnout of between 30 – 35 percent (see High stakes rest on races expected to boast low voter turnout). When government spends so much of our money, that’s an absurdly low turnout, but the reason is obvious. Our government has gotten too complex. When we go to the polls we cannot figure out how to vote or why it would be worth the bother.

There is only one practical solution. We must limit what our government can do. We need to vote for leaders willing, ready, and able to cut our government down to size. We need to vote for people who see themselves as one of us, willing to let us decide how to spend our own money.

GET OUT THE VOTE! On Tuesday, November 8, make sure your family and friends VOTE!

  1. PARTNERING WITH EAGLES – You make it sound like you are a refugee, and I guess you are. When I live in Colorado in the early 90’s, we knew people who had fled California. The sad thing is that it has only gotten worse since then.

  2. I spent 14 yrs in the liberal state of CA. I made it a point to study the voters pamphlet well ahead of the day to cast my ballot. It ( the pamphlet) was sometimes more the size of a magazine; there were often ten or more proposals many requiring more tax dollars.
    Each proposition would have a pro/con pg, then a rebuttal to the pro and con; each side posturing, and giving their reasons why to /not to pass the proposal. By the time I was through going over all the propositions, before checking out the various candidates for the offices up for election, I was usually quite disgusted.
    Your money tree pic at the top of this blog is very appropriate. Year after year, I’d end up voting NO on 9 out of 10 propositions; when the returns would come in most (no surprise) would pass. But I did my duty to cast an intelligent vote. I fled; yes I’ll use that term, FLED, the “molden” state in ’96.
