The Republic endorses Karl Marx’s dream
The daily’s weekend supplement which regurgitates all of the news from the previous week, wants to remind their dwindling readership that they give an emphatic Thumbs Up to the efforts of Begging for a Handout Mayor Phil Gordon.
Under the headline Gordon’s push for stimulus funds earns our applause is this typical leftist short take:
“Whether you agree with the president’s stimulus plan, thumbs up are in order for Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon, who joined other mayors in a meeting with President Barack Obama to represent the interests of their constituents and insure that their cities get their fair share of funding.”
No mention that the so-called “fair share” comes from overburdened taxpayers across the nation or that the stimulus scheme is filled with non-essential projects. Also omitted is the fact that the grandchildren of today’s toddlers will continue to bear the indefensible debt that comes along with this Marxist ideal of redistribution of wealth.
“From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”
– Karl Marx, a founder of modern socialism and communism
