  • Actually, I have seen the explanations of the "hoax" quotes. I have also read the full context of all of the statements on the list. The point is still quite valid.

    Take for instance the first quote, "We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." Hillary did, in fact, make this statement. But, Hillary supporters claim that the true context of the statement makes the statement quite logical and reasonable. Really? Let's see.

    This quote seems to suggest that Hillary has plans to seize property from some people and redistribute it to others to promote an ambiguous "common good." This idea is a very socialist one at its core. But, was this here intention? Look at the full context, according to this commenter.

    "This is part of a Rudolph Giuliani attack that becomes nastily in error by omitting the context. Sen. Clinton was speaking to a group of her contributors, wealthy people, who were the chief beneficiaries of the Bush reverse-Robin Hood tax cuts."

    "Reverse-Robin Hood tax cuts?" I assume, by this he means that Bush stole from the poor and gave to the rich? Tax cuts allow people to keep more of the money that they themselves have earned. It isn't STEALING money from anyone...especially not the poor.

    Error #1.

    Then he gives the rest of the Clinton quote.

    "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."

    She is saying that she will seize property (i.e. tax money) from these wealthy individuals on behalf of the common good. Based on what Clinton has stated as her Presidential policy (i.e. Universal health care, Government-handouts for stay-at-home moms, Federally funded savings accounts for every newborn, etc.) we know what her "common good" really entails. It means that she will take money from the wealthy via taxes, and redistribute it to others who "truly need it" - to those aren't "well enough off." She plans on taking money from someone who has earned it, and giving it to someone who has not earned it.

    That is the socialist nature that is being exposed in these quotes.

    When you read the context of all of these quotes, knowing Hillary's stated goals for her Presidency, it is overwhelmingly obvious that her intentions are socialist at their very core.

    All of these quotes are quite accurate, and very descriptive of her true nature.

    If you doubt that she is a socialist at heart, you have not been paying attention.
