Posted on 09/25/2011 1:13:36 PM PDT by John Semmens
Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren dismissed the GOPs class warfare criticism of President Obamas push for tax increases as founded on fantastical notions about individual rights.
The argument that people somehow have a right to keep what they earn is totally bogus, Warren contended. In our complex economy it takes cooperation to produce anything. Who can say what anybody has earned?
Rather than leave the allocation of rewards to what she characterized as the arbitrary whims of the market, Warren argued for a socially determined distribution of the jointly produced output.
Wouldnt it be more equitable for the peoples democratically elected representatives to decide how the nations collectively generated wealth ought to be divied up? Warren rhetorically asked.
Warren pledged that if she is elected to replace Republican Senator Scott Brown she will work to transform the economy from it current mode of taking to a more humane mode of giving. The idea that anyone can freely take money under the pretense of free enterprise must be replaced by an acceptance of a system of socially conscious giving. As the representative of the social whole, the government must assume the responsibility for overseeing this giving and ensuring that each person receives his or her fair share.
In other Massachusetts news, Democratic Governor Duval Patrick brushed off being caught driving in his SUV during the car-free week he himself had declared. What one individual does is inconsequential, Patrick insisted. Its the collective response thats critical. If enough people leave their cars at home we all benefit.
Patrick argued that the Governors need for mobility has to take precedence over mindless adherence to a public relations gimmick. I cant afford to waste my time riding on a bus. He also suggested that he and his chauffer constituted a car pool, and thereby basically met the intent of his anti-automobile proclamation.
“You serve *us*!”
“The Government owns you and everything you have!”
“You are our slaves and we will do whatever we want with you!”
“Bow to your Leftist OverLords and Masters!!....NOW!!!”
For socialists, the government owns the means of production and it is the government's responsibility to decide how they are to be used.And the government has the right to interfere with the property rights of businessmen from using their capital in the ways that would be most profitable to themselves.This assault on private property and profit motive leads to economic chaos.
Our founding fathers would have frog marched a heretical witch like this behind the nearest barn. She’s a cheerleader for marxism.
Well Senator Brown can feel a bit safer now. I know Massachusetts is a liberal state but I really doubt it is this liberal. This is extremist nut talk.
Since Elizabeth believes no one has the right to keep what they have earned, maybe Elizabeth’s paycheck should be sent to someone else. Oh, then again, maybe she really has earned her pay check which using her rationale would be an excuse to keep it.
You almost got me.
Tell her to put back all of HER MONEY. OH, that doesn’t count for the islamic or communists, just “YOU INDIVIDUAL” TEA PARTY TYPE FREE PEOPLE.
You all realize this is satire right?
Yeah but its exactly what she does believe. Have you listened to some of the crap she’s spouting?
You are a frigging parasite!
Whit this being Massachusetts, she “will” get elected.
8 roped in before someone saw.
Great as always, John. This one was chillingly probable!
This woman needs to be stopped.
The funny is is that this is probably what actually runs through her tiny brain. You can’t actually satirize this woman.
I hope the GOP is working to make sure this menace is not elected...
