Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said “Ask not what the Super Bowl can do for you but what you can do for the Super Bowl.”


Spoken like a true Capitalist!

Let's look at this some more...

A) “Ask not... for you, but what you can do for..."

B) “Ask not.. for you, and do nothing for...”

C) “Ask... for you, and do nothing for...”

D) “Ask... for you, and what you can do for..."


A) No take, only give

B) No take, no give

C) Only take, no give

D) Take, give

In A you must sacrifice. In B you must be self-reliant or dis-attached. In C you profit without investment. And in D you profit and invest.

A) Sacrifice

B) Self-reliant or dis-attached

C) Profit without investment

D) Profit and invest

What political attachments can we make to these four choices? B seems quite Libertarian/Ayn Rand, broadly speaking. C some would argue are those on the dole, but that's not a political bent, that's more a "I gotta get out of this" than a "I vote to be poor by choice!" thing, right?

Personally, I like the give/take choice of D, and I do consider myself to be Liberal/Progressive with Socialist tendencies (with a healthy respect for Entrepreneurs). Anybody want to argue A?

A) No regulations, with taxes

B) No regulations, no taxes

C) Only regulations, no taxes

D) Regulations, with taxes


A) Independents?

B) Libertarians. 'Faith-based Capitalists'. Trolls.

C) Old People

D) Liberal? Progressive. Socialist?
