The Simplistic Notion of Property Rights

We're in trouble, folks.

The libs aren't even bothering to hide their Marxist ideology at all anymore.

A couple of weeks ago we heard Barack Obama tell Joe the Plumber in broad daylight that he wanted to take Joe's property and "spread the wealth."

Now the Weekly Standard reveals Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) talking about the "simplistic notion" that people have property rights.

The American worker has produced more per person at any time, but it hasn’t been shared, and that’s the problem because we have been guided by a republican administration who believes in this simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an antipathy towards the means of redistributing wealth.

"This simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it."

"This simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it."

Do you have any simplistic notions that you are entitled to keep your TV set if I want it?

Do you have any simplistic notions that if I like your car better than mine, I can come over and drive it away? If you have two vehicles, certainly I'm entitled to one of them. You don't need two.

Do you have any simplistic notions that you're entitled to a big-screen LCD TV when I don't have one?

The Founders would be aghast that such an idiotic and alien notion could come from an elected official in America.
"To take from one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association — the guarantee to every one of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” - Thomas Jefferson

“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the law of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence” - John Adams


Have we really sunk so far from Americanism that liberals feel free to be this open about their Marxist views and intentions?

Have we become so morally bankrupt that we have widely embraced the politics of greed, class envy and coveting other people's property...and consider envy, covetousness and theft a political virtue?

If we get a Democrat White House from the election today, we know God isn't doing us any special favors anymore. We'll know we're getting exactly what our dark hearts deserve.
