This recalls a brilliant quote by Lady Margaret Thatcher: "People think that at the top there isn't much room. They tend to think of it as an Everest. My message is that there is TONS of room at the top..."

The only choice voters have is between socialists and facists - different flavors of all powerful government.
The simple freedom we crave doesn’t have a place at the table.
Conservatives with their wholesome mentality about effort and achievement, respect the work and sacrifice that it must have taken to afford the home, recognize it as an incentive to strive and see this level of success as a worthy goal.
They also regard themselves as lucky that they live in a country where their effort IS rewarded.
exactly which country would that be?
because it sure isn't America
I don’t live in a palace... but it is WAY better and in a much better neighborhood than where I grew up... and certainly better than where my grandparents lived, when they arrived in America.
What ever I have, I don’t owe it to anyone... I have worked hard and I am proud of the fact that I have improved on my condition.
I am sure that I’m not unique in this and that I may not have been so successful in another country-no matter how hard I worked. That’s what I mean.
A true capitalist sees the house, realizes the people who bought it spend way more money than they need to get by, and plans ways to sell them lots more crap!
In a rational society,the envy of some does not justify the use of force to violate the rights of others.
A socialist is disgusted by an expensive house and thinks “No one, EXCEPT ME, should be allowed to live like that.”
you haven’t been reading the bs coming from the left, have you?
YOU didn’t get there alone.
YOU didn’t build your own success.
YOU owe your success the everyone else
you need to see what elizabeth warren and crew are pushing... because 0bama is also pushing it.
they will take whatever you have, if it’s more then they deem you need / deserve
They are SOOOO preoccupied with ‘rights’... ‘civil rights’, ‘human rights’, ‘voting rights’, ‘reproductive rights’, ‘religious rights’, on and on ad infinitum...
None of them will recognize HARD EARNED RIGHTS... the rights that no one GIVES you and that can't be bought, traded for, coerced out of the establishment, etc. Hard earned rights are JUST THAT... you got them as a result of YOUR OWN HARD WORK, SACRIFICE AND EFFORT!
I remember that my first job out of HS was in a factory. I worked midnights and killed myself working extra hours and overtime because I needed a car and my parents couldn't afford to buy one for me.
All my friends were out having a ball, parties, picnics, movies, and just hanging out like you do when you're 17. Not me... I was in that dirty, dark and noisy factory, night and day. I was there on week days, on weekends and on holidays!
When I got finally enough money together, I bought my first car cash. When I caught up with the kids who were supposed to be my ‘friends’, they said I was stuck up and smug, because I had a new MGB... AS IF someone just handed it to me! NOT. That's when I found out that hippies and Liberals were absolute BS!
