Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
The following are quotes of Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton:
“Many of you are well enough off that the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
“We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society.”
"I have to confess that it's crossed my mind that you could not be a Republican and a Christian."
"God bless the America we are trying to create."
"We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
“It takes a village to raise a child.”
"The unfettered free market has been the most radically destructive force in American life in the last generation."
"We can’t afford to have that money go to the private sector. The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it."
"Other developed countries…are more committed to social stability than we have been, and they tailor their economic policies to maintain it."
"Too many people have made too much money."
“We are at a stage in history in which remolding society is one of the great challenges facing all of us in the West."
Here to me is the granddaddy Hillary quote of them all:
"We just can’t trust the American people to make those types of choices…. Government has to make those choices for people."
