Not About Sharing The Pie

Elliot linked to a fantastic blog post that sums up a very important pivot point that we are facing in this country. He wanted to quote the whole article...I'll give you a few more bites and hopefully the author won't see a problem with it. This is phrased in a very succinct manner that explains what we are up against with an Obama presidency: the surrendering of all the work we've done as a country since our inception.
....As this election looms, we are in a struggle between capitalism and socialism attractively packaged as "change"

...(on Freedom)It means freedom from the coercive power of the state. Freedom to use your abilities the best you can to craft a life for yourself to the best of your ability. It means freedom to protect that which you have earned, from other people, in a manner that's true to the Constitution that founded this country. It means freedom to own a weapon responsibly. Certainly if Obama and Biden have their way, I wouldn't own a gun, making it even easier for someone to take what I have at the point of theirs, be it literal or figuratively.

...The American economy, was not built up by "sharing". What is unique in America is we were the first to use the phrase "to make money", no other language has that phrase used in that manner, in history, men had always thought of riches as a static quality to be seized, begged inherited, shared or looted, or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to truly grasp that wealth has to be created. Created with the efforts of individuals, who improved our world through hard work, and effort and earned money from it as a byproduct.
I have long maintained that communism, socialism, fascism and the like are forms of aristocracy trying to reassert their power against modern economics. Economics as we know it liberated us from being under the thumb of the king, the queen, the emperor. Those weren't good times in those days. The shrill siren song of socialism...or as we call it today, "Change", is the way that people who want to be served try to lure the masses. To lure able bodied people who think they are helpless. If you fall for it, you are nothing but a lemming and maybe you should be used. But do it somewhere else, because what our constitution stands for, is too good for you.
