Pin It

On Sunday, the People’s Church of Chicago in Uptown and Occupy Chicago hosted “Occupy the Dream,” an event to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. During the assembly, community organizers called elected officials to the pulpit to get their commitment to supporting certain left-wing political agendas.

State Senator Heather Steans (D-IL) agreed to push forward the agendas proposed and vowed to push for a progressive tax rate in Illinois. She began her short comments by directly ridiculing republicans from the pulpit.

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. Winston Churchill

    “To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” —Thomas Jefferson

    “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.” — Benjamin Franklin, On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor, 1766

    “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” – Thomas Jefferson

    “If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.” –Thomas Jefferson

    “With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” — James Madison in a letter to James Robertson

    What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. – Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776

    As usual, when a liberal speaks … the words they say are often the opposite of the truth. When this Heather Steans stipulates she wishes (paraphrasing) “the content of someone’s wallet shouldn’t matter” – she is in direct rhetorical opposition to her party’s constant search to redistribute the contents of this wallet to that wallet. Memo to Steans: That’s why it’s the politics of envy. Your clients are always the recipients of the redistribution, right?

    Since the State Senator is so wealthy, maybe she would agree to contribute what she proposes to tax others as a good faith gesture prior to the voters’ changing the state constitution.
