Quote of the Day

"The American dream is not that every man must be level with every other man. The American dream is that every man must be free to become whatever God intends he should become." --Ronald Reagan

That's the main difference between Conservatives and Socialists. Conservatives realize that in order to be truly free, the individual must be free to FAIL. Failure can be the best teacher and motivator there is. Ask any self-made millionaire and they will acknowledge that they had many failures before they found that one correct path to success, and that success in itself does NOT mean that they will not fail again in the future.

The Socialists seem to believe that everyone has the "right" to achieve the equal level of success as everyone else; and that governance is best left in the hands of the elite "experts", failing to realize that those "experts" are as prone to failure as anyone else is.

No one or group of people is capable of knowing everything and the inter-relationship of factors that effect every decision. One size fits all decision making is detrimental to the group as a whole in the long term and that is why Socialism has spread nothing but misery in EVERY instance where it has been tried.

Great post. I copied and linked it over at a liberal site. They love things like this...just like they love Sarah Palin.
