It's what the public wants.
That's what economist Milton Friedman replied when asked why Americans choose to go down the road of socialism.
And if we continue to go down the path of allowing government officials to usurp more power over our lives, Friedman saw only one end: the loss of anything that has any semblance of democracy, which is a loss of freedom and a prison state.
This happens, he said, because our political structure doesn't give individuals the clear ability to see how it will impact the totality of government, and certainly doesn't reward it.
His solution: we need to talk to each other.
For the past month, I've been talking to our college students, who in just a few short years will be the next leaders of our businesses and government.
But with less than 40 days until November 6, when our nation is going to choose the direction of our government, we have precious little time to talk to each other.
To preserve freedom, we must persuade our fellow Americans to learn what you and I know about capitalism and morality.
That's why in the past couple of weeks, I visited colleges in North Carolina, Colorado, and Pennsylvania -- states that are being targeted by liberals to persuade Americans that capitalism is why they're poor and why they need government handouts to "get a leg up" in society.
Friend, if we don't talk and spread our ideas, we cede our country to the liberal elites whose design for our lives will be exactly what Friedman described: a prison state.
I know about living a life destined for poverty when I lived on and off of welfare for seven miserable years. It wasn't until someone told me that I was misinformed about welfare and showed me a path to prosperity through personal responsibility that I woke up.
Help me wake up more Americans! Will you donate $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or even $2,500 to help me stop the liberal misinformation campaign in battleground states with truth?
When I show up on campuses throughout America, I get noticed because liberals are afraid that students will hear my life story and change their minds about welfare. And they're right. There are often protests against me before I arrive on a college campus. Newspaper editors warn students about attending my speech and professors demand their students to ignore what I say.
But people still come. They listen and we talk.
Help me reach more students by sending me to colleges in Ohio, Michigan, and other battleground states that are inundated with falsehoods about our country.
We have less than 40 days so please click and follow this link right now to donate $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 to keep me talking and keep our future free!
