Excerpts: My Liberal friend said to me, “You (Conservatives) believe that everyone gets what they deserve.” I was a bit taken aback until I realized he wasn’t talking about Karma…he was revealing his own perception of Meritocracy, a cornerstone of Free-Market-Capitalism, as something inherently unfair! How is it that an 18th century French historian outsider named Alexis de Tocqueville was able to see so clearly the greatest blessings of a country…endowed now, it would seem, to a generation of American citizens mostly blind to them. We don’t get what we deserve my Liberal friend…we get what we earn by the virtue of our willingness to work hard and persevere. “If it is to be, it is up to me”…not the whim or mercy of some despot or state committee, but me. All rights and the power they convey, “endowed by our Creator”, reside in and flow from the bosom of the individual! THAT is the indisputable heavyweight champ in the Arena of Ideas my friend…which is exactly why they have taken control of the schools, the media, and lust for control of the Internet!
