Great video on government spending and the economy

Ever question if increased government spending might actually help the economy, rather than hurt it like every other time it has happened? Well, then this video is for you. You can learn many valuable things, like how wealth redistribution is not actual economic stimulus, and how big government causes the economy to grind to a virtual halt.

Of course, none of this is new, or particularly rocket science. What's amazing is that there are still people, in this country, today, who believe that big government will help them be more prosperous, and wonder why the government fabricating trillions of dollars to hand out to people could possibly be bad. I mean, it's like finding people who really do still believe the earth is flat: yeah, I'd guess they exist, but in America? Now? Roughly 50% of the voters? Boggles the mind.

Stay in school, kiddies; learn the basics of how the world works so you don't grow up dumb. When the nice man on TV talks about enormous "stimulus packages" of government deficit spending and how it's supposedly going to help you, ask your parents how socialist wealth redistribution helps you. Then hold onto that thought until your old enough to vote, and don't repeat the mistakes our generation is saddling you with.
