Sure, it's easy for conservatives to sit around and yell at government for being too big - but what happens when YOUR piece of the pie is about to get cut? We've been duped into embracing the old system but it's all the same crappy big government programs from before. How do we correct the pattern? Glenn explains on radio today.
“It’s easy for people to call for big budget cuts until it’s time for their piece of the pie to be cut out. Then what do they do? They continue to fight for big spending. Other times politicians promise to make changes but end up keeping the status quo so they can preserve the popularity and power. It’s the same crappy system, they just try and disguise. So what do you do?” Glenn said.
“How many people are there that wouldn't want freedom, don't want freedom if it requires them to be responsible their whole lives. For instance, how many people are living off of their Social Security only, only?”
“How many people will go their whole life and they won't think of anything? They have the means. Not everybody has the means. But they have the means to take care of themselves and yet they don't invest it. They don't put it away. They instead spend it on something else. They're not frugal their whole life. And they don't put away for the rainy day. And so they expect someone else to pay for that. Well, no, that's being a responsible citizen,” he argued.
“I would rather have my money that I've invested than have a government take it from me. The government keeps taking it from me and so I can't invest.”
“Spider‑Man: With great power comes great responsibility. Well, can you tell me a group of people that have had more power, who have understood the power more than the citizens of the United States of America, at least on the average over the last 200 years? We don't understand our power now because our power has been made into a country's power,” Glenn said.
“The left is disguising the old system. That's all they're doing. They are disguising it. And they are making it more powerful. Everything you hate about this system they've disguised. They've put a green wrapping on it and a big red bow on it and said, look at this; this is new and exciting. No, it's not,” Glenn said.
