Chris Matthews readily attributes "work requirements", "food stamps", and "welfare" to race. Making that association so instinctively as he does is racist. Yes! I said it.
When I think about those issues, I think about:
- our debt
- our bloated government
- our out of control spending
- taxes being too high
- our weak economy
I feel especially sensitive to the issues of race being a minority in America but I don’t see any solutions coming from Liberalism. The solutions to our problem come from liberty and freedom. Lowering taxes and regulations so that greedy capitalists will invest in the inner-city to help blacks and Hispanics prosper with good paying jobs is the solution. What is wrong with wanting that? Sounds like a better solution than subsidizing poverty with free government handouts, doesn’t it?
