On liberal ideology, and more

“What [Harry] Reid and his counterpart in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are hoping is that Democrats who lose their seats in the election will be willing to pass legislation in a lame duck session that they know the voting public doesn’t support. In Reid’s logic, they will be free to vote their liberal ideology. And it won’t matter because they will have already lost their jobs. But it is precisely this kind of arrogance that has Democrats in such poor shape heading into the mid-term elections.” –columnist Linda Chavez

“American presidents have advanced redistributionist policies before, but none has used Marxist class-war rhetoric as routinely as Barack Obama. Obama has used the words ‘millionaire’ and ‘billionaire’ in just about every political speech he has made since August — and although Obama himself is a millionaire, he never uses those words except pejoratively. ‘Millionaires and billionaires’ in Obama’s lexicon are people who should be taxed more and held up as objects for public antipathy.” –columnist Terrence Jeffrey

“What about the politician who tells us that he’s not going to raise taxes on the middle class; instead, he’s going to raise corporate income taxes as means to get rich corporations to pay their rightful share of government? If a tax is levied on a corporation, and if it is to survive, it will have one of three responses, or some combination thereof. One response is to raise the price of its product, so who bears the burden? Another response is to lower dividends; again, who bears the burden? Yet another response is to lay off workers. In each case, it is people, not some legal fiction called a corporation, who bear the burden of the tax.” –economist Walter E. Williams

“The Obama administration has fewer people with real world experience in the private sector than any other administration in years. Maybe if they had more people with practical experience in the economy, we wouldn’t be in the mess that politicians created.” –economist Thomas Sowell

“If more politicians were faithful to the Constitution, the government would be restrained. And restraining government is ‘weird,’ ‘wacky’ and ‘dangerous’ to so many liberals today.” –columnist Jonah Goldberg

    Yup, the “evil rich” is a magnet label – except, of course, when it applies to the Obama family. Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out how he got to be a millionaire so quickly?
