Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said recently in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.”
These are the tendrils of thought that precede socialism. Thoughts like “Well, to make this babysitter government work, the less people we have to take care of, the better off economically we will be.”
Doesn’t that line of thought imply having no citizens at all is the best course?
The answer to that question is that a massive government still needs people. Not many people, so they don’t have to ‘take care’ of us, but enough to supply their paychecks and for them to have power over.
The United People strongly disagrees with all thoughts among these lines. Hong Kong is more densely populated than US or China, and yet according to the Economic Freedom of the World 2008 Annual Report it is still the most economically free region in the world(at 8.94 on a scale of 10, with the United States weighing in at 8.04)
How are massive cities like New York City, NY, or Hong Kong founded? Does the government build them? No! Hard working American citizens build them.
Every life is invaluable. Every human being can give more than they take. It’s called ‘progress’. But perhaps Nancy Pelosi doesn’t know what that is.
