Paul Krugman Epitomizes The
Current Liberal Divorce From Reality

by Timothy P. Carney - February 21st, 2011 - Washington Examiner

In his column today, Krugman describes the unions as a "counterweight to the political power of big money."

But the unions are big money. Five of the top ten contributors to congressional and presidential campaigns since 1989 are labor unions according to the Center for Responsive Politics. In the last election, 10 of the top 20 PACs were union PACs.

More importantly, it's not as if Big Labor is balancing out the rest of "big money." Does Krugman [not] know that all of the top ten industries contributing to the 2010 elections gave more money to Democrats than to Republicans?

In reality, all of the major power brokers in our modern society are in cahoots with the Democrats, who are the masters of political corruption. The same corruption that gives public employee unions outrageous wages, perks and retirements - provides corporate welfare to big business and Wall Street.

Everyone is promised all the gold. Both Wall Street and unions are the enemies of our nation. Both see America as the goose that laid the golden egg. Both plan, as the fable reminds us, on killing the goose so they can hoard all the gold for themselves - because they do not have a clue how our wealth is created. Aesop is still right. As they tear at the soul of our nation, the goose is dying.

They are too stupid to see that.
