Posted on 06/29/2004 6:12:49 AM PDT by 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.
Gee. That makes me feel so warm and fuzzy.
The arrogance of this type of attitude is why people like this should never be elected.
Ole Thunder Thighs a socialist! Whoda thunkit>
What how can that be? I thought tax cuts only help the rich!
Did they applaud?
They got a head start in New Jersey
McGreevey signs 'millionaire's tax' bill
Revenue generated by the tax hike on those who earn more than $500,000 a year will be handed out as higher state rebate checks to mailed later this year to homeowners and renters.
Never forget this quote. Never.
bump...for not forgetting!
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. "

The hell they will.
"We're going to take things away from you..."
Isn't that called stealing?
Never forget this quote. Never.
This needs to be archived until 2008. It will be of very good use then.
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.
Surprisingly blunt for Hitlery. But nothing new here. They have taking things away from me for the common good all my life. I guess she meant they are just going to take away more of it.
Exactly what Jim McGreevy said in New Jersey yesterday when he signed his tax increases into law.
Reminds me of x41's Buffalo speech. Something to the effect "I could give you a tax beak but you would probably spend it wrong."
It's only Republicans in Congress who have proposed getting rid of the income tax--not Democrats.
Keep talking hitlery ping....
Tell you what you crazy bitch-
give away all of YOURS first....
then I'll think about it!
Every American should know that Hilary said that. I hope a tape was made that someone could get their hands on.
Well, at least the Republicans are protecting money.
Maybe they could get serious about protecting property rights too. The silence in California is deafening.
A crass left-wing hillarity.
I'll take, "Film clips that will never be aired on the World News Tonight," for $10,000 Alex.
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.
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!
Tragedy of the Commons.
I ain't, and hopefully neither will my addressbook full of correspondents that just received it.
Socialism is bad for business.
Thanks for getting that quote up where everyone can see it.
The real news here is the mask is off, the liberals and the media are now standing in the light for all to see.
Interesting. Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro. They all had the same idea. And the same results.
By they was, do you think the Democrat politicians will exempt themselves from the confiscation?

Sure would look on a billboard with "Vote Republican in 2004, we know it is your money." under it.
On behalf of Karl Rove, thanks for finding it :-)
Hillary's expanding balls must be putting a strain on Old Crusty. I will be keeping this for future use with my liberal friends. Perfect.
Fox must run this tape!!!
who defines "common good" ?????????
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.
I believe that Hillary Clinton would get ~50% of the vote if she ran. This nation is in a crises.
I hope a video tape exists too. This should be seen and heard far and wide.
Is this for real?
Has the democrat party dropped its pro-American pretentions and shown its Socialist intentions?
