If Hillary Clinton’s “shared responsibility and prosperity” agenda doesn’t scare you, it should.
Folks, make no mistake: “Shared prosperity” is a really warm and fuzzy way of saying “redistribute the wealth,” which is socialism pure and simple. She bemoans her own perception of a widening “gap between rich and poor,” setting the stage for even more class warfare rhetoric. And she advocates ”…open(ing) up CEO pay to greater public scrutiny.” This means that under a Hillary presidency, we will have policies that restrict CEO pay – yes, you heard it right: the government putting a cap on peoples’ earnings, even though this is America.
It’s no secret that Hillary is a socialist in Democrats’ clothing. There are many, many examples of her penchant for redistribution of wealth, not the least of which is the statement she made to a group of San Franciscans in 2004, in reference to Bush’s tax cuts: “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
Hillary’s plan (and I do give her credit, by the way, for putting forth an actual vision rather than just rehashing the abortion issue) is a gift to the Republican party this election season. It shows just how far to the left she really is (you can’t get much farther left than Karl Marx) and should, ultimately, be her defeat.
Please, Mitt Romney, take this ball and run with it.
Editor’s note: I don’t have the original publication date for this post but it was certainly in the run-up to the 2008 election so we’ll call it November, 2007. Ironic – and frightening – that America chose an even farther left candidate as the actual President in that election.
