Tax Breaks, Diversity and Job Creation in a Free Economy
The problem with the nonsense about any politician creating jobs is that government can only create government jobs, which by definition are non-value producing. As public servants helping tap the rolling hoops of progress, these are honorable positions. As satraps, they eat out the people's substance while feathering their own nests.
Government has no capacity for love, which makes its involvement in health, education and welfare potentially calamitous and extremely costly, especially when it borrows money into existence, putting added burdens on the people.Government employees are regulatory, record keeping, law enforcing and if overemployed, harassing of the general population and the value generators in particular.
When considering true diversity - not the racial, ethnic, gender, religious categories, which are only used to divide, true diversity is the people's infinite range of gifts and talents. If government is in its place it aids prosperity generating and stewardship as the people exercise their God-given right to pursue happiness and own property.
Its not a zero sum game where if you get a dollar, I'm cheated out of a dollar. A dollar generated by ingenuity, sweat and dedication can circulate 9x in the economy unless interdicted by high taxation and dishonest monetary and regulatory policies= all of which are rampant under "progressive" domination.
The idea of "tax breaks for the rich" - somewhat of a misnomer - is that the more dollars that are invested in enterprise, the more of that wonderful 9x cycling through the economy that enriches all of us.
If everyone paid some type of flat tax % at their level of income, everyone would have a sense of ownership of the fruit of a prosperous nation. Instead, the takers want ever more freebies until the well runs dry and blood flows in the streets. That's what happens in a two-class society like a caliphate our current Administration seems so fascinated with.
