Hillary Speech

It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few and for the few, time to reject the idea of an "on your own" society and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity. I prefer a "we're all in it together" society.
-Hillary Clinton

Ahem, no thanks. This "we're all in it together" society sounds very socialist to me. Why do Democrats always want to raise taxes to fund their priorities? If it's so important, why don't they give their personal wealth to those programs? I donate to several charities yet I don't expect the government (i.e., other people) to do the same. Perhaps it's because there's no political gain on personal donations: tax the "rich" few, give to the "poor" masses, get elected from this wealth redistribution scheme. Sigh...

Also, "government of the few"? You mean our current government is not big enough?!
