Those that are liberal are those who believe in liberty. The political left of today is not in any way, shape, or form - liberal.
Assessment #2: A Flat Tax
Everything stated in this segment is correct, but the flat tax should be justified not just because it benefits everyone but because on principle, we should all be equal under the law. Anyone who does not agree with a flat tax does not agree we must be equal under the law in a moral and proper society.
Assessment #3: There is no Common Ground Between the Modern Tea Party Movement and the Occupy Movement
Although I understand this sentiment of the author, this is in fact wrong because:
- Both organizations are grassroots in nature with a strong, dedicated following.
- Both observe the same problem, as illustrated in the beginning of the video, which is without question common ground.
- IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION: There is no common ground in regard to the solution to the problem, which is the fundamental point of the author.
Assessment #4: Capital Investments Over Short Term Investments
To complement this accurate contention by the author of the video, please review this article titled Stimulus logic: spending vs wealth creation.
Additionally, there is no such thing as stimulus because in order for the government to make such short term investments, it must take from those who are actually producing something of value and give it to others based upon politics.
Assessment 5: Property Rights, Freedom of Contract, and Free Markets
Everything stated here is complete (in relation to a summary) and accurate.
Assessment 6: The Left's Desire for Wealth Transfers and Intrusion into Private Contracts.
To compliment this point, it is important to note that Republicans, on principle, agree with these policies as explained here.
Assessment 7: The Fork in the Road
To underscore this point and to take it one step further, one must understand that simply electing liberty minded people is not the solution problem, it is a solution to the symptom. We must end collectivism forever. This means changing the system at its core, explained here.
Final Assessment: The Downward Spiral
Listen, observe, and understand that this conclusion is, without question, accurate.
