“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” — Winston Churchill 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealth out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working another
President Obama works under the premise that while you can’t fool all the people all the time, you can full enough of the people all the time to get re-elected. His latest claim that he is not out to redistribute wealth but only to “invest” in America is a case
A news story that has not made a big splash in the United States is the overwhelming defeat of the Socialists in Australia. The extent of the defeat was so great that it’s been compared to Gen. George Custer’s Last Stand at the June 1876 Little Big Horn massacre. The
To say that President Obama is a Socialist will put you on the fringes of civil discourse. “The left has portrayed the assertion ‘Obama is a socialist’ as the product of hallucinogenic tea,” as James Taranto tells it. Of course, President Obama is a Socialist as are a number of
There is little incentive for nearly 50 percent of the population to care about a reduction in taxes since they are the beneficiaries of high taxes for everybody else and none for them. To reduce taxes means a reduction in what they might get. At least that’s what they believe.
The following is part of a speech that Pres. Harry S Truman gave on November 3, 1949 in St. Paul, Minnesota, as part of the city’s “Truman Day Celebration.” It shows that our government has been trying to promote the “General Welfare” through wealth redistribution for a very long time.
Thom Hartmann is the host of the nationally-syndicated radio show The Thom Hartmann Program. He is a liberal with a background in business. It’s important to note that he’s made a lot of money in his life, so much in fact that he has been able to retire at an
Many have been critical of Mitt Romney for his religious views. Little has been said about those of Rick Santorum. It’s rather surprising that evangelicals, most of whom are Protestants, are turning to Santorum as their “Republican flavor of the week.” How much do they know about his views? Yes,
The Occupiers are pulling out all the stops to support their failing cause. When Leftists start appealing to the Bible, you know they’re in trouble. How many times have we heard that “religion and politics don’t mix,” “you can’t impose your morality on others,” or “there’s a separation of church
Socialism doesn’t work, so it’s surprising that some very intelligent people believe in it with a near religious fervor. Of course, it’s not about mental makeup but faith despite the evidence. 1. “I am a Socialist not through reading a textbook that has caught my intellectual fancy, nor through unthinking
Former theist and now self-avowed atheist Dan Barker, who is co-president of the Freedom of Religion Foundation, promoted a “Beware of Dogma” campaign using billboards that also included the line “Imagine No Religion,” borrowed from John Lennon’s atheist national anthem “Imagine.” I wonder if the FRF’s call for everyone to
In a Washington Times editorial titled “Obama’s Third World America,” this statement caught my attention: “On a campaign fundraising trip to Chicago, Mr. Obama quipped that under the proposed Republican budget plan, ‘we would be a nation of potholes, and our airports would be worse than places that we thought
When Mitt Romney said “corporations are people,” the Leftist Democrat Dominionists went crazy. How could he make such an absurd statement? How can an impersonal gigantic corporation be a person? For the simple reason that a corporation is “group of people authorized to act as a single entity (legally a
