Adam Smith on Politics in El Paso

by Rich Wright

From The Wealth of Nations:

“To hurt in any degree the interest of any one order of citizens, for no other purpose but to promote that of some other, is evidently contrary to that justice and equality of treatment which the sovereign owes to all the different orders of his subjects”

But that’s just Standard Operating Procedure in El Paso. The City of El Paso regularly taxes the working class for the benefit of the ruling leisure class.

Government is picking winners and losers instead of letting the free market do its job.
