Bill Whittle with the third part of the ‘Firewall’ series about tea party core beliefs entitled ‘Wealth Creation‘. Once again, I have listed the preceding videos following Part 3 for those that may have missed them.
I think that the fundamental divide between liberal and conservative philosophy and policy comes down to how people feel about wealth; not money, money is just a unit of exchange. I’m talking about wealth; having more than you need to survive. Now it seems that most modern liberals believe that wealth is essentially limited. They see the multi-millionaire with the Lear jet, the big car, and the three or four big houses as a villain because if wealth is more or less fixed, if there’s a giant, but limited, pot of money out there somewhere, then the fact that he has more means someone else has less.

About Ted Kennedy:
Who descended from the bluest blood of all, never had a job that didn’t entail spending other peoples’ money, and creating the rules and regulations that other people had to live by. What is it about all of this that seems vaguely and unpleasantly familiar? Smells a little bit like a ruling class, doesn’t it?
