Video: Wealth Creation 101

Right Hand Man made me aware of this very good video clip about wealth creation.  I watched it and found it to be outstanding.  If you have about 10 minutes it is worth the watch.

So the next time you hear a progressive/Marxist or even a Democrat bashing our free market system and making the claim that capitalism has failed us direct them to this video. They might actually learn something. They may actually wake up and wipe the progressive sleep from their eyes and see things in a different light. Or they may not.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    Great video! It seems so simple, what is it that the liberals don't understand!?

    I know what you mean Steve. Funny how the liberals can take something so easy and regulate it to the point where it can no longer work. This is where we are with the free market.

    I like Bill Whittle's videos, and his goal of a conservative film making company.

    The point he doesn't address is why liberals think wealth is limited. Its because in their view, you only get wealthy through luck or stealing.

    I ran into something similar in sales, where 20% of the employees would make 80% of the commissions. The salesman not making the money would complain to each other about how the "good" salesman were lucky, or worse, were stealing customers from the guys at the bottom. This is rationalization for failure, pure and simple. Liberals are the same way, they know they can not compete on equal footing with people who actually run businesses, so the only way to make liberals look successful, is to bring down the high-fliers to the same level as the losers.

    This is the philosophy across the boards. It is why unions do not promote individual merit or hardwork, it is why our schools teach to the lowest common-denominator, and it is the reason behind policies like affirmative-action.

    The whole liberal philosophy is a rationalization for their own failures and their fear of trying.

    This is great video that definitely has the capacity to open the eyes of progressives. Capitalism has indeed been successful. It is government intervention that has caused chaos and threatens our way of life, as well as punishing success while rewarding the poor. We need to reduce the size of government and reward success.

    That video kicks…well you know.

    I love Bill Whittle. It would take a brave marxist to even click on his video.

    Great response Fleece. I would also add that any economic plan or idea that the left comes up with or tries to implement disregards property rights from the start. In order for them to do all the things they desire you must throw out property rights.

    Amen to that Teresa!

    I really like it Matt. It was very basic and easy to understand. We just need to get progressives to stay focused long enough to watch it. They tend to have focus problems when it comes to things like the constitution, the free market, and individual liberties.

    Very funny Opie.
