So it has been a week. I have kept myself at bay with endless amount of questions upon my own thoughts. The last commentor had asked if I was for more State rights which I can easily say no to, but what am I for became the question? I have fallen for Capitalism but encountered questions as in, "What do you want from the poor, to suck it up and stick through it? That it will only get better. How much more do they have to suffer?" And with this question I made myself suffer, as I thought maybe I am wrong, but I have come to the conclusion that I am not wrong, only right. Not for the reason that I can not be wrong, but that a government that governs most is definitely not the solution only more of a problem.

Capitalism denotes freedom, gives everyone the ability to choose, and it is not kind; it does bring suffering. Ronald Reagan had said it best, "If not now, when? If not us, who?" In order for the Third World countries to rise from their state they must bring capitalism into their society. Embrace the economic freedoms and also the misery it will first bring, because the government makes stability, but it will end at one point leaving it to be paid by who? The children or the grandchildren? The people want immediate changes, but those changes cause problems in the long run. Do we wish to be the cause of pain in our children's future, or the reason why they live a wonderful life? My own want for helping others began to pound upon my logic, but if I begin supporting the minimum wage to help the select few, I am also being unkind towards those it does not help. Let the market be the unkind one, which will also be the kind one as it rewards. For this reason do the rich become poor and the poor become rich, not because of any socialistic welfare state.
