Our nation is saddled with a tiny cadre of Leftists – who unfortunately hold many key positions both inside and outside of government. These Leftists assert with great – though completely unfounded – authority that they know best how private businesses should do their thing.
Leftists think they know exactly how every little facet of the giant, endlessly faceted private economy works, which is remarkable, considering their enormous disdain for it.
President Barack Obama in his first autobiography described his few scant months spent doing actual (private sector) work thus:
“Like (I was) a spy behind enemy lines….”
And famously, recently uttered the unbelievable:
“If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
And this President – with this perverse perspective – is too much of an economic Centrist for a whole host of other Leftists.
