Hillary: We'll take your money for 'common good'
Senator speaks to wealthy taxpayers at San Francisco fund-raiser

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.

Addressing a Democratic fund-raiser yesterday, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., told wealthy supporters the government will need to take money away from them for the "common good."

Clinton headlined an appearance with other women Democratic senators in San Francisco, where donors gave as much as $10,000 to California Sen. Barbara Boxer's campaign.

"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Clinton said, according to the Associated Press. "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."

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Christine Iverson told WorldNetDaily that Americans should take careful note of Clinton's remarks.

"This is John Kerry's Democratic party," she said. "Small-business owners and taxpayers all across America should be very, very concerned."

Kerry and Clinton, Iverson said, are people who "believe the government knows how to spend your own money better than you do."

Iverson acknowledged Clinton's use of the term "common good" was telling, evoking the language of Karl Marx, who envisioned a society that distributes wealth "from each according to ability, to each according to need."

In her book, "Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton," the late author Barbara Olson wrote, in Clinton's "formative years, Marxism was a very important part of her ideology."

Olson described the senator growing up as a "budding Leninist" who "understood the Leninist concept of acquiring, accumulating and maintaining political power at any cost."

The Washington, D.C.-based Americans for Tax Reform responded to Clinton's remarks, saying, "When it comes to tax policy, liberal politicians often try to hide their true colors."

"There you have it: Hillary Clinton, the soul of the Democratic Party, talking about taxpayers’ money like it's hers," said Americans for Tax Reform head Grover Norquist. "What insufferable arrogance – it's as though our taxes are hers to spend!"

Hillary will live to regret those words. IMO, without massive voter fraud, she is unelectable.

In his recent interview on Fresh Air, the Disbarred Lawyer ranted that his tax break was too much, he didn't want it, and that none of the millionares he knew ("and I know quite a few") wanted it either.

He didn't mention how much of his tax break had been sent back to the Treasury or to a charity, or how many of his "quite a few" millionaire friends had disposed of theirs, or why they didn't pool their unwanted tax breaks to create or support some charitable endeavor.

I suspect the answers are all "zero."

John, penalizing the productive is never a good idea.

This sort of quasi-Marxist rhetoric may resonate with some pressure groups, but most Americans want to get ahead, and do better, and they instictively know that giving more of their hard-earned money into the endlessly hungry maw of government is not going to improve their lot in life.

It's like the Lotto in my state- every time I ride by the billboard ( rented at taxpayer expense ) that loudly crows

"____ more million in the Lottery!"

... I always mutter, "great, that's ___ more million less people have to spend on their own families..."

Hillary has another massive health insurance scheme definitely up her evil sleeve, after the rat party trial lawyers complete their current destruction of the world's best medical system.

But she has overplayed her hand. She is toast. BUH BYE, you loser weasel.

Hey Hillary, forget about taking my money. Take my car and go to Fort Marcy Park........ for the common good. Oh that's right....... you don't need a car to get there.

Totally agree. She stepped in it this time. That will come back to haunt her. We all know she is a communist/socialist, but many Americans are clueless. This statement should help expose the "woman" eventually.

Of course the Clinton's are not real communists and do not wish for such a system on the U.S. They are making too much money off capitalism to want to see it destroyed. What they are are free-market parasites. Spouting leftist phrases and ideology gets them votes and support among the ignorati and the idlers who represent a large part of the population. These people would much rather have you make the money and then take it from you. They're closer to Jesse James than they are to Karl Marx.

Incidentally Shrillary was merely echoing what her partner in crime Slick Willy said to a common citizen in a speech he gave in Buffalo right after the Affaire Lewinsky broke. After the speech some citizen asked Clinton if he was going to cut taxes. The Slick One said that he'd like to cut taxes, but he didn't think that the people would spend it wisely. That statement epitomized the whole arrogant attitude of big government towards the common tax-paying citizen. In short they are saying that "it's not your money, it's ours...and we'll spend it any way we deem proper. SO SHUT UP AND KEEP PAYING THOSE EXCESSIVE TAXES YOU MISERABLE LITTLE TAXPAYING WORM!!!"

Both the liberals and the media have dropped any attempt to disguise who they really are. It's a good thing for them to stand in the light.

My guess is their hatred has blinded them and they cannot see what they are doing ... hehehehe

So the Bitch of Kosovo isn't satisfied with being the faithful senator from New Yarkansas, eh? And Billy Goat won't keep his fat mouth shut either.

How this society spawned such evil people who destroy everything they touch and who are surrounded by corpses of people who knew things about them and yet, these people, continue to fawn over the likes of this national disgrace and scandal!

These are the same people, of course, that stand in long, long lines waiting to see Michael Moore's political hitman piece of GWB and the same who would stand in drenching rain waiting for the Pervert President to autograph their books.

The Clintons and their millions of worshippers are a national disgrace and are a source of much sorry and stomach cramps for us to continue to have to watch them prance across the stage of contemporary America never to go until it's time for them to be buried in their pit or crypt and begin their journey downward into the hell that surely awaits them....and all their freaking sycophants

The terrible conclusion that one must reach is that Hillary Clinton does not realize the terrible acts that have been done and can be done in the name of "the common good." Her lack of understanding makes her dangerous.

The only common good Hillary Clinton could perform would be to submit her resignation as a United States Senator and promise never to return to public life.

"Both the liberals and the media have dropped any attempt to disguise who they really are. It's a good thing for them to stand in the light."

Or are they about the seize power by doing something or cooperating with something that would defeat President Bush and the Conservatives.

Remember, Marxists are objectivists and relativists. They have no constraints of conscience, ethics, or civility.

I think everywhere you look the shrillness of the leftist's lies are becoming silly and boring. I doubt there is anything they can do to 'seize power'. What do you have in mind?

All you have to do is look to CA for guidance. AS has turned around CA and the people know it. A causal survey of business associates says everyone is beginning to notice the tax cuts are working and the economy is back. ... and it's all Bush's fault :-}

There's a big difference between "millionaire Clinton" and millionaire business owners. Clinton didn't risk any of his money to become rich and didn't create any jobs to speak of. Business people risk their money every day, create jobs and wealth for other people and are never guaranteed a profit.

I really can't understand why Dems love her so much when she is obviously undermining their chance for victory in November. Is she intentionally scuttling the Kerry campaign?

In an effort to understand how anyone could support her, I searched DU to find some comment justifying or praising her statement. (I searched as well as I could manually since their 'Search' feature is reserved for donators only--- another reason Freerepublic is a superior forum)

Anyway, could not find one single thread or comment defending or supporting her position. It's like they don't even realize she is out there exposing their Socialist agenda. Or perhaps they are too embarrassed to stand behind her?

It defies logical explanation.

But one thing I did learn on DU:
They hate Maria Shriver intensely.
One said the Kennedy family should disown her.
Also from the same post:
I also think your public political views are more important than your marriage.

I wonder if they realize she is merely a network news personality and not an elected official.

I disagree, I think she knows exactly what she is saying and believes it and recent history shows us that she will have a lot of support. Remember, there are still many folks out there that believe that Maxism/Socialism hasn't worked only because it hasn't been tried by the "right people", this is the age-old lie. Beware--and prepare yourself.

"Are you comparing Marx to Rand? I just want to better understand your point......"

Funny you should ask that. I see Rand and Marx as flip sides of the coin. Marxists call it dialectical materialism. Don't remember a lot of Rand but think her view is metaphysical objectivism.

I threw relativism in there because the left is imbued with that view of utility toward life, morality and power.

In any event, Hillary is just plain Marxist for thee but not for her and that wastrel walking gonad.

I don't think she does realize it.
Dick Morris called Hillary Clinton a "liberal ideologue."
Convinced of the purity of their motives, liberal ideologues believe they are working for the betterment of mankind, or some other silly goal, and are oblivious to or unconcerned about the costs of their dreams.
