Re: You can make some people believe anything if you dumb it down enough
>>For example, that "trickle down" economics works
Funny, we had unprecedented growth under Reagan and his trickle down economics model. But what do I know, I just have proven historical evidence and documented facts to support the concept. Silly me.
>>or that tax breaks for the wealthy create jobs
Actually, we're seeing proof of that now. Companies getting tax breaks are investing that money back into the US economy. I'm no fan of Trump, but I'm willing to concede when he does something right.
>>or that America is the "land of the free".
Freedom is a mindset. People who don't want to be free (those who rely on nanny state goobermint to protect them), never will be. People who cherish freedom - even in the midst of strangling regulations and burdensome government - will always be free.
There are plenty of people in both camps in the US, but I believe there are more of the latter category, than the former.
