“I told you so?” “We’re on the way, heading towards Socialism?” Glad to see that you picked up your debate talking points Sarah. I mean you really did need to read something since your Katie Couric interview. I thought is was so cool of Hannity to feed you softball questions whose answers you recite by rote. And I know this topic is so last week since you’ve been so busy lately with your feud with David Letterman.
Lets see why Socialism is so bad why don’t we? According to C. Bradley Thompson of the Ashbrook Center:
“Socialism is the social system which institutionalizes envy and self-sacrifice: It is the social system which uses compulsion and the organized violence of the State to expropriate wealth from the producer class for its redistribution to the parasitical class.”
What the fuck? Just what class do the Wall Street bankers and Bernie Madoff fall into? And I have yet to see the IRS Gestapo running into corporations and running out with large bags of money.
Lets see why Capitialism is so good from this same dickhead:
“Yes, there are winners and losers in capitalism. The winners are those who are honest, industrious, thoughtful, prudent, frugal, responsible, disciplined, and efficient. The losers are those who are shiftless, lazy, imprudent, extravagant, negligent, impractical, and inefficient.
Capitalism is the only social system that rewards virtue and punishes vice. This applies to both the business executive and the carpenter, the lawyer and the factory worker.”
What the fuck! I’m starting to feel like Jon Stewart of The Daily Show. Please tell me he didn’t use the words honest, thoughtful, prudent, frugal, responsible, disciplined, and efficient! And isn’t that whole reward and punishment shit backwards?
So what does this have to do with the Wasilla Moose Maven and the state of Alaska? Plenty! For every dollar that the state of Alaska paid in federal taxes in the year 2005 (the latest year that statistics are available) they received $1.84 in return according to The Tax Foundation. Want to get funky with earmarks? According to Taxpayers for Common Sense, Alaska receives $506.34 per capita in earmarks while Arizona with ten times the population only receives $18.70 per capita. Having John McCain as your Senator is a bitch Arizona. This sounds like the redistribution of wealth to me. I guess it’s not Socialism when you are on the receiving end.
You’d think that I’d be content to stop here but there is one other little issue to discuss and that is the Alaska Permanent Fund. The 2008 payout to every eligible Alaskan, man, woman, and childs is $3,269.00. If we count Sarah, Todd, Bristol, Willow, Piper, and Trig their share of the free money comes to $19,614 for nothing more than being an Alaskan. Sounds like a government handout to me! Wouldn’t that put you into that parasitical class that dickhead talked about earlier?
Please go back to Alaska and disappear! Read a fucking book! But most importantly, just shut the fuck up!
