F-ing socialist! Pals around with terrorists!

(8:30PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

Lord almighty, save us from these revolutionary socialist FREAKS who want to break up this great country of ours that has survived for hundreds of years – until now.

Holy crap – listen to what this guy says about redistribution of wealth:

Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions of property in geometrical progression as they rise.

Kee-ripes, how un-American can you get?!?

Oh, and he’s not done yet, nossir. He goes on:

Whenever there is in any country . . .  unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right. The earth is given as a common stock to man to labor and live on.

Then he talks about “the fundamental right to labor.” – !!!

WTF?? “Common stock”? “Fundamental right to labor”?? Whew. Dude – this guy has dangerous ideas. God help us if any of them ever takes hold.

I understand he* also wrote this:

” . . . to promote the general Welfare . . . ”

Did you catch that – welfare! The guy’s talking about WELFARE. And you and I both know what that means, mmm?

As if that weren’t bad enough, the dude has a history of palling around with revolutionary terrorists – y’know, like, people who shoot people and blow things up – right here on our soil!! WTF??!?

And I think he’s half-black – or at least his kids are.

But these ideas aren’t original to him. Oh, no – just like Lenin, this guy stole from another freakin’ socialist communist:

A tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

And, check this out: this guy’s obviously so ashamed of his radical socialist beliefs that he writes under a pen name! What is he – a freakin’ blogger on Docudrama, or something?

“Adam Smith” – snort – right!

*UPDATE: Actually, the Preamble was written by a friend of Jefferson’s, Gouverneur Morris. Thanks to itchyredness at Big Orange for catching that.

    the chance to repost this, OH?

  3. I can’t do it all by myself.  We need to all band together to preserve our individuality!

  4. You betcha.

  5. share the same birthday (different year).  Showed it to her.  She loved this essay and is reasonably certain that Jefferson would have, as well.
