Jay's Tuesday Free Enterprise Quote

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC

"Government "help" to business is just as disastrous as government persecution... the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off."                                                                                              Ayn Rand

That was one of the three platform pledges of one Ronald Reagan - to "get government off our backs."  Our national prosperity is based in private property.  Once acquired by the government, and made "public," private property is no longer prosperous.  Public acquisition of private property, be it land, taxes or even in the employment of people, reduces the public wealth.  And that, in and of itself, reduces freedom for all. 

People are private property?  Their liberty and productivity is!  And once supported in their lives by the private sector their contribution to the productive capacity of our economy is nearly zero.

Jay:  Everything old is new again!  Who'd a thunk we'd have Atlas back on the top of our reading list!?!  Thanks for your insight.  I "suggest" this for a feature!

Thank you Tish.  What she wrote is not old - this battle has been going on since the 1830's with the advent of what Marx dubbed socialism.  He codified it, and Ayn Rand worked diligently to expose it.

Let business do business.  A politician should stick to what they do best (chasing aids around the office comes to mind).

Jack - not bad!  Although I know an aid to a famous Senator and I can tell you they aren't good at chasing aids either...

Steve - thank you very much!  If any quote is inclined toward free enterprise, it is this one!
