Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – September 26 –

We all know what “spreading the wealth” means. We are living in the sprouting of a spread the wealth society. It means “taking” from the rich, and giving to the poor. There is so much giving going on that the wealth of the rich could only run the country for two months or less. The Chinese and investors pay for our irresponsibility. It means destruction of the middle class and everyone is becoming equally miserable. Money is being printed like crazy, and hopefully hyperinflation will not occur immediately.

They honored risk-taking, not risk-aversion. They talked not just of equality for those at the bottom of the social ladder but of a chance to rise upon it. For Lincoln, the “leading object” of the government was “to elevate the condition of men — to lift artificial weights from all shoulders — to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all — to afford all an unfettered start, and a fair chance, in the race of life.” Obama's flawed sense of fairness
