FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Tuesday

You have to love the irony

I don’t really need to provide more evidence that Hillary Clinton is a confirmed socialist. But, I’m going to anyway. She keeps letting her Marxist talking points guide her thinking processes. And, it is scary.

Today, she gave a speech at the Manchester School of Technology. As reported by the Associated Press:

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.”

Isn’t that precious? Clinton thinks that our society would be better off if we just all worked together. Makes you fell all warm and fuzzy doesn’t it? But, the problem lies in the methodology. How does Clinton presume to accomplish this utopian community?

“I believe our government can once again work for all Americans.”

What she really means is that our Government will take what someone else has and give it to someone who does not have. If the Government regulates what everyone has, no one will be “on their own.” We’ll all be in it together!

(FYI - The only thing “we’ll all be in” is POVERTY. Just ask the Soviet Union.)

Then, in an attempt to appear in favor of the free market, Clinton said:

"There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets.”

You know, she should have just stopped there. That is an accurate statement. But, sadly, Clinton continued:

“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.”

It’s as if she were trying to be ironic. In a speech about the free market, she stresses the importance of government controls. Her first sentence said that the FREE market promotes growth. But, the FREE market is defined by the absence of Government interference. When “the right government policies” are allowed to interfere with the free market, it is no longer THE FREE MARKET.

So, what are these “right government policies?” Well, in the mind of Hillary Clinton, the seizing of oil company profits for redistribution would fall into that category. Telling CEOs how much they are allowed to earn falls into that category. Having the Federal Government control and operate the nation’s healthcare, retirement, and insurance systems falls into that category.

Shall I go on? These are all things that Hillary Clinton views as necessary to promote the FREE market.

This is why I can no longer call these people Liberals.
