“Many of you are well enough off that…the tax cuts may have helped you. We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on the behalf of the common good.”
-Excerpt from a speech at a Democratic fundraiser, June 28, 2004 in San Francisco.

"The other day the oil companies recorded the highest profits in the history of the world. I want to take those profits. And I want to put them into a strategic energy fund that will begin to fund alternative smart energy, alternatives and technologies that will begin to actually move us toward the direction of independence.”
-Democratic National Committee’s winter meeting, February 2007.

"I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society. I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.

"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. Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government policies."

-During a May 29, 2007 speech at the Manchester School of Technology in Manchester, NH.

"I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."

-On ABC's "This Week" on February 3, 2008, talking about a health care plan requiring universal coverage.

Wow!! Is it any wonder author P.J. O'Rourke referred to Hillary as "Hugo Chavez in a pantsuit"?

It amazes me that they ever win elections. Do you remember when the Berlin Wall fell and the USSR collapsed? At the time I thought that those ideas were discredited. Apparently not.

I wonder if ol' Hillary plans on giving back any money she earned in Whitewater, cattle futures trading, or advances on her book deals...

I don't know--color me skeptical.

Here's a research project for you, Brad: make a list of Hillary quotes, each with a corresponding quote by some famous communist (Marx, Castro, Chavez, ...) that echoes the same sentiment. It shouldn't be hard to find the parallels.

As a matter of fact, Rush does this very thing in his monthly "Limbaugh Letter".

The bit is called "Who Said it"?

Some of the more famous choices were Ahmadinejad or a Democrat; Osama Bin Laden or Jack Murtha, etc.
