Reader comments about this quote:
The statement addresses the concept that once in a hole - one can not dig themselves out of that hole. To borrow, as a necessity to purchase the implements of industry for a feasibly reasoned expectation of profit differs greatly from borrowing to finance a dole, supposed entitlements and legislation supporting moral and religious endeavors.

    Light and transient causes are the socialist bread and butter. Regardless of what side of the isle your on. Withdrawal is not so bad, when you find out less is more.
