Barack Obama and his liberal-progressive thugs are only one step away from bringing America to its knees, the greatest most prosperous people who ever existed reduced to drudgery to stay alive. Liberal-progressives have launched attacks on all the four major pillars of prosperity. America is going down.

But how many Americans understand what is happening? As Americans more and more watch their prosperity disappear and their slavery increase, will they ever understand that their struggle is a result of lack of separation between government and business? Americans will not rise up and put a stop to liberal-progressive insanity until they understand what really creates prosperity.

The four pillars of prosperity are these:

(1) Secure property rights, not only for physical property, but also for intellectual property and one's own person -- civil liberties, separation of government and business, and little or no taxation.

(2) A systematic procedure for examining and interpreting the world -- the scientific method.

(3) A widely available and open source of funding for the development and production of new inventions -- capitalism's financial markets.

(4) The ability to rapidly communicate vital information and transport people, ideas, and goods.

To really understand the importance of these four pillars, read "The Birth of Plenty," by William J. Bernstein ... and, as one CEO says, "be prepared to be amazed."

To better understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
