The Greatest Error of Republicans and Conservatives
08 August 2017 | Pago Pago, American Samoa
The austerity of libertarianism = neoliberalism is what kills economic growth and prosperity. Time and time again, and conservatives/republicans are too economically ignorant to see and understand the huge quantity of data showing that. Thrift is fine for the individual, but murder for an economy. It is the paradox of thrift at work and the biggest economic misunderstanding and hang up that republicans and conservatives can have.
The true mantra is not lower taxes, smaller government and no government interference in markets and the economy, but instead, proportionally bigger and better government, higher taxes and more and better government intervention in the economy. That is what the evidence and data show, but it flies in the face of all the conservative propaganda that has been used to indoctrinate the nation that is NOT at all supported by the evidence -- at the city, state nor the national level.
Government waste is not the big problem claimed by republicans and conservatives except in defence expenditures where it runs about 5 percent because of bad and sloppy contracting practices and crony capitalism. That s why republicans.conservatives love high defense expenditures so.
It is all just criminal ignorance because it is denying so much to so many and killing the growth and prosperity of the nation. We are regressives; not progressives.
