If you read nothing else today. . .

. . . make sure you read this outstanding essay from Doctor Zero. There's so much good stuff here that it's hard to pick just one excerpt, but try this:

There’s no reason a country with vast natural resources, tended by a bold and innovative people, should suffer double-digit unemployment and capital flight. A compassionate nation, whose daily industry has done more for the downtrodden than every utopian scheme combined, has no reason to lower its head in shame, and tolerate the extraction of “charity” at gunpoint. The veterans of bloody wars against lawless tyranny should not accept a system that makes fools of the industrious. A great people, who live in reverence of equality, require no lists of class and racial enemies from opportunistic politicians.

There's a lot more at the link. Click it, capisce?
