Hey, did you know that there’s a statue of Brigitte Bardot in Buzios, Brazil? And what does this have to do with economic theory? It’s just that yesterday Karen and I took a walk in Beverly Hills and we were totally grossed out by a hunk of public sculpture in a bank plaza on Wilshire Boulevard. In truth, most public sculptures are eyesores designed to make ordinary citizens feel stupid and ignorant in contrast to the artistic class who insist they know what’s best for the public. Anyhoo: I really think BH needs a BB sculpture. Desperately. Maybe I’ll start a petition or something. Just kidding. About the petition I mean.
Andrew Klavan is one of the few screenwriters in Hollywood who has boldly come out as a Conservative Republican. He’s smart and witty and knows that the best way of getting a free market message across to the public is not through long geeky policy papers that no one has the time or patience to read, but through simple and entertaining bites of information. It’s Conservative politics Hollywood style.
Here, Andrew explains why Obama’s economic plans are ruinous for America, cynically designed to get him a second term and create even more dependence on the federal government—a benevolent system of slavery.
Congressman’s Ryan’s economic reforms truly are reforms—Democrat economic and social policy is best described as reactionary identity politics fused with class warfare—and conceived to make the individual American more prosperous and more free.
Remember, without economic freedom there is no genuine freedom for citizens. Witness the Muslim world which is shackled to theocratic and secular Socialists and whose only technical innovation in the last few centuries is the cruel refinement of homicide bombing.
