Hillary Clinton is a vile, loathsome wretch of a socialist...but you already knew that. What you might not have known is that occassionally she gives us a glimpse of the communal, welfare-state hell in which we would suffer and toil if she tricks the stupid American voters into electing her in '08. Here's a snipet of a recent speech she gave to a group of students at a tech school...look for the key socialism phrases she masks with feel-good, nanny-state rhetoric...
Clinton: Shared Prosperity Should Replace 'On Your Own' Society
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.
The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an "ownership society" really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.
"I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."
That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.
"There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed," she said. "Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government policies."
-Right off the batt she opens with "shared responsibility and prosperity". SHARED PROSPERITY--that's socialist double-speak for "the government, run by me, will take the money that you earn, and give it to people who didn't earn it, but who voted for me."
-Then she pooh-pooh's the "ownership society". Hillary hates the concept of the individual. Everything should be community property. In Hillary's twisted and tortured mind, it's your responsibility to work on behalf of those who choose not to work and provide for them. The government, run by Hillary, will decide how much of your prosperity you will be allowed to keep and how much must be forfeited and given to the shiftless, loafing hippies who voted democrat. You do not own the wealth generated by your hard work, others have rights to it according to Hillary-style socialism.
-"to ensure the middle-class succeeds in the global economy". The Constitution guarantees our God-given right to "the pursuit of happiness". It doesn't guarantee happiness itself. Liberal democrats pretend to be in favor of equal opportunity but what they mean is "equal outcome". If you work hard, get educated, stay off drugs, and manage to accumulate some wealth, Hillary thinks that some of what you earned should be given to lazy, stupid, drug-addled hippies because it's just not fair that you have a measure of wealth and they don't. That they stupidly squandered every opportunity is irrelevant, they deserve to be as wealthy as you.
-"Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government policies". To Hillary and all liberals, America is great because of the government's intrusion into, and control of, all things. We conservatives know that the free market, unfettered by the meddling of pointy-headed government bureaucrats will provide every citizen with far more opportunities to acquire wealth than any government program can.
Hillary Clinton...having a good laugh at the abject stupidity of most American voters.
