By just about any rational economic measure, the United States is the envy of the world. It's little wonder why people risk their lives to enter the U.S. for a chance at a better standard of living. The principles behind the U.S. great success story are free capitalism, a Christian work ethic, and a democratic government that adheres to the Constitution which protects our rights. Below is an excellent video essay on the role capitalism played in improving peoples lives.

In only three and a half years, the socialist policies of the Obama administration has increased our federal debt by more than all previous presidents COMBINED. ($4.2 trillion under Obama vs $4.1 trillion accumulated by all 41 U.S. presidents from George Washington through Geore H.W. Bush. The average American relying on federal government assistance now receives more in benefits than the average Americanís disposable personal income. That's quite a drastic shift in position from 2006 when he claimed George Bush was an unpatriotic American for inreasing the debt by a fraction of that amount spread over eight years. On the rare occasions that Obama is confronted with these facts by liberal media, his defense is to tout the three million jobs he claims to have created. Even accepting his accounting of number of jobs created, the cost breaks down to over $312,000 PER JOB.

To see the ultimate conclusion to such policies, one need only to look at the recent events in Greece. There, liberal socialist politicians have competed against their opponents by outpromising and outspending them on entitlements. Now, Greece is hopelessly bankrupt and it's citizens are rioting in the streets over the entitlements they can no longer receive. My question: who exactly are they angry at? The conservative leaders that warned them all along of the overspending, or the liberal politicians and unions that promised them the moon just to get their votes?
