The definition of insanity

Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. In the world of politics actions taken, repeated over and over again, is the very foundation of everything our elected frauds does.

How many times haven’t our enemies abolished alcohol just to see smuggling, home-breweries and bench drinking sky-rocket?

The war on drugs have never work, will never work and cannot work, they still try it over and over and over again.

They bail out banks to see the same institutions fail again a decade later, and again they bail them out.

When a government agency fails miserably, they change the leadership or create a new entity to replace the old one. And when they fail again, the same damn thing happens.

The examples of mental illness among our designated übermench go on and on, over and over again, and in all areas.

Another example of this madness is showing over in the US now. Several states have imposed higher or new taxes for the rich, meant to take money from those that still have some. A green algae can figure out the result of this, but they still try it, just as politicians have done before, and most likely, will try again.

ALBANY, N.Y did just this, increased the taxes for the so called rich. The result, as usual, is that revenues from the income tax increases and other taxes enacted in April are running about 20 percent less than anticipated. Real estate mogul Donald Trump told Fox News earlier this year that several of his millionaire friends were talking about leaving the state over the latest taxes. And sure enough; Buffalo Sabres ice hockey team owner Tom Golisano, and conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh have both moved to Florida. Nancy Bell is moving her Science First manufacturer of scientific products from the Buffalo site her father founded in 1960 to Florida. And the examples are many more.

Often you hear righteous people claim that rich should pay more, some lefties even argues that if we confiscated all the wealth of the rich and handed it out we could save millions of starving. What they don’t say is that this, even if manageable on a global scale, would lead to utter disaster.

Let’s say we did confiscate a couple of trillions of dollars (or whatever the number is) and handed it out. What next? Next the rich would be no more, why working hard, try to make a living and get wealthy if it’s just get stolen from you? In essence lower production would be the consequence. And all that money we “gave to the poor”, how long will it last? A week? A month? And then what? When the money has run out, what do we do? They never tell you this.

Those that rule us will continue on this path, they always have and they always will. So if this is insanity, what does that make you whom voted for the maniacs?
