Notable Quote – Kerry Jackson

by Skip

The REAL greedy ones are not the capitalists but the politicians:

Like most on his side of the political spectrum, Sanders doesn’t know how to use the word. Greed is not a company or a person working hard to make more money, and then working just as hard to keep what they have earned, what is rightfully theirs. Greed exists when a person or persons want to take money from those who have earned it and use it for their own purposes.

Without apology, we’ll say that the greediest people on Earth can be found in the U.S. Capitol and in state houses, and within the ranks of the beneficiaries of forced wealth redistribution who are always grasping for more. All of these people so achingly lust after other people’s money that they have no reservations about taking it by force and using it for themselves. What could be more greedy than that? Simply put, greed is the act of desiring something unearned. That’s not Webster. That’s common sense.

-Kerry Jackson

Even if when that act of desiring is to give it to someone else.  Government destroys charity for there are those that believe that the only good should be from government.
