He can't resist: Obama bashes Founders on the 4th of July! It appears the President of the United States can't contain his disdain for America's historical roots.

Socialist slop from Hillary: We Need to Spread the Wealth Around More:
“It’s important, too, that we look at how to promote broadly-based prosperity. One of the problems in societies around the world today is that too much of the productivity of the economies are going to too few. Too few people, the political and economic elite, are realizing the vast majority of benefits from economic activity.
  It’s true in my own country where, unfortunately, economic inequality is increasing. And it’s true in Ukraine. It’s true in Europe and Asia and Africa and South America.
  So part of the challenge of economic growth and prosperity is to make sure it gets down and equally spread among people. And we have to work towards spurring investment and long-term growth in Ukraine. And we have to work together to end corruption in both the public and the private sectors.”

It is about defending that right, not merely legally, but physically and effectively, by any means necessary--including handguns, including concealed carry.” From Elin Solaro  in A Feminist Theory of the Second Amendment and Self-Defense

EUPHEMISM Watch! “There is a lot of talk these days about "state capitalism". What is it? The best definition is perhaps, "a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole." In other words, it is textbook socialism. But just as liberals now call themselves progressives, they now call socialism "state capitalism".” -- Erick Ericson
