I Want Your Money

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Monday, August 23, 2010, 8: 10 AM

This video contrasts two views of the role that the federal government should play in our daily lives using the words and actions of Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. Two versions of the American dream now stand in sharp contrast. One (the dream) views the money you earned as yours and best allocated by you; the other believes that the elite in Washington know how to best allocate your wealth. The other (the nightmare) champions the traditional American dream, which has played out millions of times through generations of Americans, of improving one’s lot in life and even daring to dream and build big. The other holds that there is no end to the “good” the government can do by taking and spending other peoples’ money in an ever-burgeoning list of programs. The documentary film I Want Your Money exposes the high cost in lost freedom and in lost opportunity to support a Leviathan-like bureaucratic state.
