#2 Long-term economic recovery is not the goal, power and control through the picking of winners and losers is the goal of our government. As the article correctly points out, Keynesian Economics has been a control measure since the FDR era, and even before.
Behind the flags of change, fairness, and equality march the legions of crooked, pickpocket politicians, layabouts, and union thugs. The real "insanity" is not found in the methods that they employ [Keynesian economics], but rather the embrace we have for decades given them. Power and control generally come through crisis, either real, manufactured, or perceived. A strong, vibrant, and prosperous economy brings opportunity and freedom for the common man, and little opportunity for government manufactured crisis. Little wonder religious observances and events like the Thanksgiving Holiday and Christmas have been systematically demonized. They diminish and take our minds away from the manufactured crisis we are to be constantly centered upon.
