She’s passionate in her opinions – but she’s wrong. She’s all for redistribution of wealth and claims it is because “nobody got rich on their own!” She’s just another fan of Karl Marx, labeling themselves as Progressives, who love to walk around with their hands in other people’s pockets. In a recent event in Massachusetts, where she will be presumably running against Scott Brown for “Kennedy’s seat,” she makes some wild claims concerning class warfare.
“I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody.
“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory — and hire someone to protect against this — because of the work the rest of us did.
“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless — keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”
Social contract? What is this social contract that she speaks of? Don’t we have one already named The Constitution of The United States of America? And if so, I certainly never read anything even remotely close to what she is claiming.
