"Tyranny takes many forms. The redistribution of wealth from those that earned it to those that want it is the Democrat's favorite form, since those that want it vote for those who promise to give it to them." (Statement was made by Major Mike, 10/16/2007)
"The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money."---Alexis de Tocqueville
And then we have:
"There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. 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."
"Hillary Clinton Says Shared Prosperity Should Replace 'On Your Own' Society," read the headline about a speech Hillary gave at the Manchester School of Technology.
"Clinton also said she would help people save more money by expanding and simplifying the earned income tax credit; create new jobs by pursuing energy independence; and ensure that every American has affordable health insurance."

Beyond the fact that corporations just pass taxes along to us, the ultimate consumer, as a part of their cost of goods, the issues she brought up are tiny to the point of insignificance in the context of the gargantuan United States economy.
Democrats are still following their mantra, "Fooling all of the foolish, all of the time."
