I saw this in an email earlier this week.
I think people are more than happy to redistribute other’s property.
I think that the concept of private property is under attack in this country. Quite often, I have been amazed by the results and discussion in the political arena during the past month or so. I understand there is discussion to allow a judge to reset the PRINCIPLE amount owned on a home loan that is about to be foreclosed. How do you protect against that as a lending institution. Remember seller financing, can you imagine?????
I have been rereading Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”. It is scary how similar it sounds. Some of the most egregious lines in that book could be taken from today’s newspapers.
