Hillary Clinton: "We're Going to Take Things Away From You on Behalf of the Common Good"
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1162094/posts ^ | Tuesday, June 29, 2004 | Kristinn

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-Cuba), speaking at a Democratic party fundraiser in San Francisco yesterday, was remarkably frank about the Democrats' intentions to use socialist redistribution policies if the party gains power after the November elections.

As reported by the Associated Press, Sen. Clinton said, "Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

With her blunt statement, Sen. Clinton has drawn clear the difference between the two major parties: The Marxist Democratic party will "take things away from you on behalf of the common good" while the Republicans will defend your right to spend your money as you see fit because they know it's your money, not the government's.

Remember this during the long slog to the elections this year. The choice is clear: Marxism or freedom. Vote wisely.

The arrogance of this type of attitude is why people like this should never be elected.

What how can that be? I thought tax cuts only help the rich!

"San Francisco rolls out red carpet for the Clintons
Associated Press | June 28, 2004 | Beth Fouhy
Posted on 06/28/2004 9:38:08 PM PDT by HAL9000

SAN FRANCISCO — The heavily Democratic San Francisco Bay area welcomed two of its political darlings Monday, with former President Clinton continuing his blockbuster book tour and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton headlining a campaign fund-raiser.

Joining other Democratic women senators at an event for Sen. Barbara Boxer, who's seeking re-election, Hillary Clinton told hundreds of party faithful to expect to lose some of the tax cuts passed under President Bush if Democrats take control in Washington next year.

"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

Blocks away at San Francisco's historic Ferry Building, President Clinton promoted his best-selling "My Life," signing books for at least 3,000 people.

The Clintons followed largely separate schedules throughout the day, with Sen. Clinton heading south to Monterey for a public policy forum and her husband headlining a fund-raiser Monday evening for the American Himalayan Foundation.

On Tuesday, the former president and Arkansas governor will continue his book tour at several stops around the Bay Area and will be the star attraction at a fund-raiser for House Democrats. "

"No resident should be forced to pay higher taxes until we limit the amount state government can spend," said Sen. Leonard Lance, R-Hunterdon.

The state budget also includes a plan to borrow $1.9 billion to pay operating costs. Republicans filed a lawsuit to challenge the borrowing on the grounds that it violates the legal requirement for a balanced budget.

It's good to see there are Republicans in the Garden State with some backbone.

Tough break for Springsteen and Bon Jovi with the millionaires tax.

Well, at least the Republicans are protecting money.
Maybe they could get serious about protecting property rights too. The silence in California is deafening.

What's really frightening is the huge number of people who consider themselves "the Common Good". (especially in NY)
They are counting on Hillary's redistribution plans to excuse them from having to work for a living.

If nothing else has done it, this idiotic, communist statement from an avowed anti-American and criminal ought to.

What I mean is this: the congressional elections taking place this November are at least as important as the Presidential election.

It is time to turn the dems into a very solid and very weak minority part.

But that means we all have to get out there and vote the Republicans into office in both the House races and the Senate.

We do not now have near the majority we need to stop criminals like Ms. Clintoon and her ilk. She should be removed from any and all committees, and reduced to one isolated vote until 2006. Then she should be removed from the Senate by vote.

It's up to us!

Forty four years ago we were assigned in an honors program to review The Áfluent Society by John Kenneth Galbraith whose main thesis was that individuals, easily manipulated by wicked advertisers to spend their money on foolish things like giant fins on cars, were therefore clearly too stupid to spend their own money in their own interests. Not to worry, Galbraith and his elitists were handy to do that for us.

I was the only student in the seminar to challenge this view and, even in 1961, I was well and truly bludgeoned about the head and shoulders by an aroused faculty for my defalcation.

Still ahead lay the near triumph of communism and other excrescences of Marxism and the just in time rescue by Reagan and Thatcher. These were dark days indeed and we had not yet even Goldwater to carry the banner. There was no ready assets to hand for an instinctive if young conservative to seize hold of to maintain balance much less to hurl against the foe. Now the same shibboleths are being rehearsed yet again by a sixties Marxist who never has been able to completely cosmeticize her dark soul.

No worries this time, this dog ain't huntin' no more.
