    This is definitely worrying, however I prefer the terms productive sector and parasitic sector. What the supporters of Obama's policies don't understand is that parasitic sector jobs consume wealth produced by productive sector jobs. The result of increasing the number of jobs in the parasitic sector is to transfer wealth from the productive sector to the parasitic sector. This will, all other things being equal, reduce the number of jobs in the productive sector (of course, in the real world, all other things are never equal, so all this means is that the number of jobs created in the productive sector is less than it would have been in the absence of the expansion of the parasitic sector). Due to the fact that parasitic sector jobs tend to pay more than productive sector jobs (typically around twice as much) and that these jobs tend to be harmful to the economy (that is, they produce a negative amount of net wealth), it is likely that more than 2 productive sector jobs are lost per parasitic sector job.

    The result of this enlargement of the parasitic sector is a substantial reduction in the amount of wealth. To clarify, government jobs in areas that conservatives like usually also consume wealth (for example, military spending is only beneficial to the economy when it is actually spent to protect the country; attacking Canada would be harmful to the economy, for the same reason that the stimulus is harmful to the economy; likewise, police spending that doesn't involve protecting people from criminals is harmful to the economy).

    The only way to bring about economic recovery is to reduce the size of government. Unfortunately, the Republican Party has a poor track record on that issue, to put it mildly. Even Ronald Reagan grew government on his watch. The last president to reduce the size of government was Truman, who only did so because of the fact that World War II ended and he obviously needed to reduce the size of the armed forces. The last president to reduce the size of government during peacetime was either Harding or Coolidge (contrary to the leftist myth everybody was taught in school, Herbert Hoover was actually the originator of the New Deal). Harding and Coolidge took over after the American people repudiated Woodrow Wilson's legacy and yet never fully reversed the Wilson administration.

    What the left fears most is the possibility that the right will become "reactionary" rather than "conservative" and actually begin to undo over a century of big government. This is why the left is so hysterical about Glenn Beck and was why they were so hysterical about McCarthy and Goldwater. It is also why they have tended to be so hysterical about the abortion issue since Roe v. Wade. As much as the left is annoyed that their "inevitable" victory is delayed by periods of conservative rule, they truly fear the possibility that the right might decide to try to "turn back the clock" and undo the left's hard-won victories. Unless we wish to see government perpetually grow, we need to focus on rolling back leftist and ignore the left's smears and the distractions created by "moderate" Republican politicians to try to take our eye off of the ball.

    All monies to function the federal government, state government, county and city government comes from the internal maximum sector. all of it, a hundred%. the government has no money to do something till they take if from working human beings. in case you desire to stimulate the economy then you definately ought to cut back taxes. The decrease the taxes the greater money interior the internal maximum sector with greater jobs being created. because of the fact greater each and every physique is earning a dwelling and paying taxes the tip result's greater money interior the treasury. that's what Kennedy, Reagan and Bush did. situation interior the Bush administration is Senator Dodd and Barney Franks forced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make loans to those who ought to no longer pay off them starting to be this diaster we've and all of the left wing liberals desire to blame on Bush.

    We have reached the tipping point of the government engulfing the entire private sector. like a giant amoeba.

    When the majorityof the population derives its income from the government, directly or indirectly, then the majority of voters will only vote for more government to secure, perpetuate, and enhance their own income.

    What's to be frightened of? Government requires a foundation of solid profitable business on which to sit. If governments get too big for their britches, they will simply collapse under their own weight. Revolutionaries and freedom fighters will clean up the mess with rifles and bloodshed.

    When private sector jobs have to finance government jobs that pay more and have better benefits, the answer should be obvious.

    When everyone in the US is working for a layer of government there will be no more innovation. It's like the Star Wars bureaucracy.

    I kid you not...if they don't slow down, we are going to be living in Ingsoc. (1984).

    We need to make this stop before we are under a totalitarian regime. We are well over halfway there.

    Google: UN Agenda 21

    Do your homework. The information is out there...you are better off knowing about it.
