"A note to a stiff-necked people"

David Mamet:

Irrespective of your endorsement of liberal sentiments, of fairness and “more equal distribution,” will you explain to your children that top-down economic policies will increasingly limit their ability to find challenging and well-paid work, and that the diminution in employment and income will decrease their opportunity to marry and raise children?

Will you explain (as you have observed) that a large part of their incomes will be used to fund programs that they may find immoral, wasteful and/or indeed absurd? And that the bulk of their taxes go to no programs at all, but merely service the debt you entailed on them? 

. . . 

Please remember that we have the secret ballot and, should you, on reflection, vote in secret for a candidate you would not endorse in public, you will not be alone.

Interesting that the guy they chose to offer a "response" to this article ignores the facts of the past four years, avoids most of the questions asked, and holds up the tired old straw man made up of the standard democrat talking points.
This morning, voting here in Cali, I was asked to be interviewed by the local TV station about how I voted on a county-wide measure to raise the minimum wage. I politely refused because, hey, this is Cali, they don't care about the facts, trying to explain why raising the minimum wage actually hurts the very people you're trying to help would be like talking to a wall, and I don't want to get lynched.... :)
