Spread the Wealth

“Property is the fruit of  labor. Property is desirable, is a positive good in the world.  That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise.  Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently to build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence.” – Abraham Lincoln

“You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” – Adrian Pierce Rogers, Pastor

“History suggests that Capitalism is a necessary condition for political freedom.”– ssss Milton Friedman (b. 1912), American economist

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of  blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” – Sir Winston Churchill
