Mia Love,
Republican Congressional Candidate
for Utah

 

I was very proud of Mia Love’s performance at the Republican National Convention today, and very impressed:

It would be delightful to have her representing Utah in the United States House of Representatives.

 

Here is her official campaign website:

She needs support.  And, in my judgment, she deserves it.

    Were you also proud of how she stuck with the YOU DIDNT BUILD IT talking points?

    • danpeterson

      Yes, I was.

      • DB

        Even though its a full corruption of what the President actually said?

        • danpeterson

          We disagree on that.

      I listened to and enjoyed her speech. Including her allusion to the anti-business “you didn’t build that” rhetoric. America is being led by a president who fundamentally fails to understand how the free market economy works. Yes, the business owner did build the business. Yes, the business owner’s taxes did indeed contribute to the building of the infrastructure supporting his business. In fact, *all* of the money that funds government “largesse” ultimately originates in the marketplace. Only there is wealth created.

      Which leads inevitably to the rather inescapable fact that governments never really give anything; they can only give back.

      The state didn’t build that.

        You’ve just summarized Obama’s actual point. This is precisely what he said. Here are his actual words

        Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.

        The words in bold are what Republican liars keep omitting.

          @DB:
          “You’ve just summarized Obama’s actual point.”

          No, I’ve contradicted his actual point.

          His actual point was that business rides the coattails of the state. Reality is exactly the opposite: the state can only do what it does because it rides the financial coattails of those who actually make and earn the money. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that statists like Obama have it exactly backwards.

    Am I allowed to donate to a candidate from a different state?

    • danpeterson

      As I understand it, there’s no problem at all. Please DO!

      Yes, its quite legal. Only foreigners have to keep their filthy lira out of our national funding streams.
