    Hillary does Karl Marx proud! But, she is an absolute horrific nightmare for our nation's Supreme Rule of Law and its founding Limited Republic!
    It seems that poor Hillary needs some shock treatment to make her remember what she swore a solemn sacred oath and contracted to uphold, adhere to and protect!

    The context was about repealing tax cuts. Shows even more the mentality that our money is not ours but theirs to decide how much of it we may keep. This is not an uncommon remark from statists from the left or the right. "The common good" is classic collectivist jargon for 'we the State.'

    Well, no matter how you look at it, the welfare people carry the votes. Thanks to the I-phones, the Access Cards, the Free Medical Care, Free Dental Care, Free Housing, Vacations whenever you wish, and automobiles to ride around. What advantages are there to go get a job?
     -- Anthony Shmegelski, Tunnkahannock, PA     
    Major call-out!

    In a saner, morally sounder nation, the ethically incapacitated, objectively, pragmatic to the point of being sociopathic, Hillary Clinton would be universally understood to be morally, ethically, intellectually, philosophically, temperamentally and experientially utterly unworthy of having access to any lever of power.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    Remove the socialistic millstones of taxation and inflation. May the Rock upon which our Republic Rest, fall upon them and grind them to powder.
