The undefined and elastic term "fairness" has become the cornerstone of the Democratic electoral campaign. From President Obama to Elizabeth Warren, to Niki Tsongas, the candidates believe that their role is to promise, assure, and insure economic equality of result rather than of opportunity for every constituent. Excellence and achievement have become anathema for them. If they cannot govern with the goal of increased prosperity for all, they are quite willing to embrace one of decreased prosperity for all.
For the past three and a half years, we have lived under a government-imposed system of wealth redistribution, crony capitalism, phony representation and an abrogation of the United States Constitution. The results include inflation, a failed energy policy, a lackluster economic recovery, a divided country, and a dearth of jobs. Business can neither plan nor grow due to the lack of certainty regarding taxes and government mandated costs. Many of the graduates of 2012 could only find internships rather than full time employment.
We can only conclude that a redistributive wealth policy, a punitive tax structure, and ever increasing regulatory requirements serve as economic disincentives. A campaign strategy based on wealth redistribution and class envy might succeed, but a governing strategy based on the same principles always fails.
