Equitable outcome should be our goal

newsroom@islandpacket.comMarch 14, 2014 

Liberals don't know how to catch fish. They only know how to redistribute them.

So far, the loaves and fish thing has only seemed to work for one guy. I would mention his name, but liberals want freedom from religion, and I would not want to offend any liberals.

Fairness exists nowhere in nature if it is defined, as it is by the left, as equal outcome. In fact, genetic evolution, for which the left otherwise credits the nature and manner of all life, would be stopped in its tracks by equal outcome.

It is equal opportunity for which we should strive, and even that is not possible to achieve. Equal outcome is not the goal. Equitable outcome is the goal.

Equal outcome would be all benefiting the same from the collective production of all. That removes the incentive to produce. Equitable outcome is everyone benefiting to an extent commensurate with their contribution to production. That is fair.
