|Chris Edwards did an excellent job - there must have been many people at PBS that were cringing. The liberal position was trotted out in such a predictable fashion "you want to cut education to little children, stop cancer research, end our border security..."|
Rand was so right that this has to be fought on the ethical level! These people need to be told they don't have any right to steal other peoples money to fund their projects.
That progressive saw all as-of-yet untaxed money as belonging to the government - such that any tax deduction, or any failure to raise taxes was to be seen as an addition to the deficit and resulting in unemployment and loss of valuable services like cancer research. In effect saying, "Tax the rich more or you are the cause of future cancer!" They are long past where they care about logic - they are willing to defend their naked power grab no matter how horrific the destruction to our economy and to do it with blatant lies, bald irrationality and no shame.
