I’m not jealous. I don’t think that we should raise his taxes, as he obviously must have too much disposable income. I’m not sorry he didn’t “Buy American.” I am genuinely happy for him. I don’t think of all the U.A.W. s who did not get a piece of his hard-earned money. I don’t think about the trade deficit. I don’t begrudge him for not buying a Prius, Made in America, or some other do-gooder vehicle that gets seventy miles per gallon. Great for him.
I don’t want to run his life. I don’t want to tell him what to do. I don’t want to tax him to death. I’m not jealous or sorry that he bought his new car. All I can think is “Great! Great for him.”
And that, dear readers, is another reason why I am a conservative, and not a liberal.
