I’m all for wealth redistribution. I don’t think anyone produces anything on their own. There is no “I”. Only a collective. Government ought to control absolutely everything. But why do people think I’m a Socialist?
BOB SCHIEFFER: You know, your fans say you’re a populist, but your critics say you’re just basically a socialist.
SEN. WARREN: (LAUGHS) I just don’t know where they get that.
You become famous for a “You didn’t build that” rant and suddenly people call you a Socialist.
You’re a slimy lawyer running as a class warrior even though your real clients are the 1 percent and people think you’re a Socialist.
You’re a political parasite who lies twelve times before breakfast, who would rather jump off a bridge than work for a living, all the while living off the money forcibly redistributed from those who do work… and crazy people decide you’re a Socialist.
Strange how that happens. Ted Bundy didn’t know why people called him a serial killer either. He didn’t know where they got that either.
Warren recently released a book, “A Fighting Chance,” that is critical of the status quo in Washington.
“Washington works for anyone who can hire an army of lobbyists and lawyers. It just doesn’t work for regular families,” she said. “They’ve got the concentration of money and power that makes sure that every rule works for those who are rich. What we have on the other side, is we’ve only got two things. We’ve got our voices and we’ve got our votes. And we’ve got to make sure we get heard. That’s the only way we ever get a level playing field.”
Who exactly is this “We” and “Our”?
Elizabeth Warren is Washington. She embodies Washington. She’s an academic and a lawyer and a politician and a regulator.
Who’s going to stand up for the little lawyer\regulator\politicians with only 1.5 billion pennies to scratch together?
Elizabeth Warren will!
