Elizabeth Warren: Nobody In This Country Got Rich On His Own [VIDEO]

 

Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is already gaining rapidly on Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown. And with speeches like this, where she explains that tax fairness isn’t class warfare, it’s part of the social contract, it isn’t hard to see why.

“[Y]ou built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

Elizabeth Warren is absolutely right. Well sort of. She actually hasn't expressed the 1/2 of it.

The wealthier one is, the MORE (on an exponential scale) they rely on and benefit from our nation's infrastructure, security, resources, and a healthy well-educated populace. Hence the only FAIR tax is a progressive tax that recognizes the exponential benefit one higher and higher on the income ladder receives.

Our government gave a paltry 535 million dollar land. Guess what China spent?

20 F**KING BILLION.......with a B.

How the HELL does an American company compete against that?

You people who think liberals are destroying the country better wake the hell up! Corporations in conjunction with China are ruining the country. Its not welfare......its not High Taxes.......its not socialism......... Its CHINA and our RUSH to send all our jobs there!!!!

They are doing the same thing to Wind Turbines. Everything WE should be doing THEY are doing because they will work for a pittance. WE are starving and they are becoming a super power and will soon be dictating TO us unless our government gets some forward thinking vision. China wont wait for us to catch up.

While Half of our government says we can't China is saying we WILL.

I am fully aware of the paradox in the statement, Paul.

SOMETHING has to jumpstart the economy. It doesn't matter if we deregulate small business. They have no customers. It doesn't matter if we cut their taxes. They have no customers.

They aren't going to magically hire people because they are deregulated. They need US to spend. And we can't. Obama's new plan was going to lower taxes on small businesses that DO hire people. So far the bill hasn't been passed.
These Corps. didn't go to china because we regulated them. They went there for NO pollution laws…….no laws against lead and the cheapest labor force in the world. They were making plenty of money before they left for China. They all became "too big to fail" right here in this country, that "is impossible to do business in". These FTA are all a pile of crap. We were sold this bill of goods with the idea we would bring the 3rd world up to our level. Instead they are now trying to drag us DOWN to 3rd world level because it makes their profits fatter.
They are selling us a pile of crap and too may people believe them when they say its a pile of roses.

The Bill of Rights is the Founding Fathers rebellion against French Enlightenment.

French Enlightenment is about controlling people for their own good. Again, SO different from the Bill of Rights where freedom is an individual right, not a collective. People DO have the right to NOT be told by someone who "thinks they know better. It is this influence that has taken control in DC. IT is true liberal progressivism. That is NOT America.

French Enlightenment is about controlling people for their own good. Again, SO different from the Bill of Rights where freedom is an individual right, not a collective system designed for us. People DO have the right to NOT be told by someone who "thinks they know better. It is this influence that has taken control in DC. IT is true liberal progressivism. That is NOT America.

It is the French Enlightenment we are still fighting today. Humans should have the right to pursue their own goals, not be bound by the rules of someone else, looking out for our best interest. Now you see where this whole controlling government attitude arose, disguised as a democratic process.

Thank you MArk for exposing the Enlightenment for what it really is, or warning us as some may view this information.
