The Politics of Envy…

Posted by blogbymurph on February 13, 2016

When I hear complaints about income inequality, I recall a quote from George Will:

Envy is the only one of the seven deadly sins that doesn’t give even a moments pleasure.

How true.  Bernie and Hillary continue to preach income inequality.  They look to bring out the worst in people in an attempt to insight class warfare.  They ignore the simple truth that Free Markets and Capitalism have lifted mankind from thousands of years of gut-wrenching poverty.  Why would anyone want to turn back time and hand over their economic freedom to government bureaucrats?
