Take my hard-earned money -- please

A Missourian at An Advocate For The Republic absolutely nails the biggest danger of an Obama presidency -- the "some animals are more equal than others" redistribution of earned money:

"Considering Constitutional scholar and Law Professor Barack Obama's regret over the restrictions placed on the government by the Constitution (a legal document) and its failure (or as I like to put it, 'runaway success') to guarantee a right to your neighbor's property, I thought that maybe we should consider what the founders thought on the subject:

“'When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.'
-Benjamin Franklin"

AM quotes many, MANY, founding fathers warning against this theft of labor in the name of "the people."

Read the whole thing.
