*barf*... terms like "shared sacrifice," "shared prosperity" and the idea that the betterment of the country works from the bottom up.
Yeah, he's not a socialist. Really. This man is so full of shit.
Look, the government can only give to some what it takes from others. There's no way to prop up the bottom without cutting the legs out from under those at the top. Most of the great atrocities of the last century have been perpetrated by governments who's goal was to create a great society by making people equal. Under every such government the goals and "rights" of society are paramount and the rights of individuals are, necessarily, thrown under the bus.
There is simply no other mindset that could be more destructive to society We've seen it before, and it inevitably tends to lead to destruction and death. Despite the lessons of history we still see it in the ideals of contemporary liberalism. You'd think by now we'd be wary of a persuasive, charismatic orator coming in and promising the world to a country dissatisfied with the current ruler.
