Be an Idea

Medgar Evers once said “You can kill a man, but you can’t kill an idea”.  The idea of freedom is the one that the progressives openly despise. My economics teacher explained money as stored energy.  The premise that energy spent to produce a service or product is transformed into money.  It is then transported to the market to trade for other goods and services that people spend energy they produce themselves.  So money is a vehicle...
