Rather, I present that government spending is EXTREMELY RARELY as effective or as well managed as the spending of the free markets.

There are exceptions... as will forever be trotted out by the collectivists... but they are, in the end and always, simply exceptions.

Again, there ARE the showcase examples where a government sponsored project went well... but compared to the virtually endless lists of free market created developments, the conversation dies before its even born.

Ultimately... government succeeeds by accident. The INTENTIONS are usually for the best... but there is little in the way of reliable success track records to point to... always and only the exceptions.


Absolutely correct
