PERHAPS THE FACT THAT WE HAVE SEEN MILLIONS VOTING THEMSELVES INTO COMPLETE DEPENDENCE ON A TYRANT HAS MADE OUR GENERATION UNDERSTAND THAT TO CHOOSE ONE'S GOVERNMENT IS NOT NECESSARILY TO SECURE FREEDOM. - FRIEDRICH AUGUST VON HAYEK
Our economy is being transformed from a mostly capitalistic one to a mostly socialistic one. More decisions are being made by politicians and lawyers in Washington and fewer by entrepreneurs. The motivation behind this shift is the mistaken belief that the financial crisis of 2008 was caused by too much capitalism and a lack of proper government oversight. This conclusion is self-serving for those in power, and couldn't be more economically misguided. Through corruption or just plain ignorance, Congress and this Administration have embraced an ideology that has failed every time it has been tried.
