The Fruits of Socialism
I was just watching a local news report on California's budget impasse, and the news anchor shared with viewers some of the comments about the topic that have been left at the channel's web site. My favorite was this, which I'll paraphrase:
A government that provides everything for everyone must first take it from someone. Your choice: do you want to be everyone or someone?
The only issue I'd take with that statement is I'm not sure we always get a choice in the matter.
