Hide your wallets…

…stash your savings in an offshore account, and bury your gold.  Hillary Clinton Hillary Rodham Clinton Hillary!(tm) wants your money!

We Are All in It Together, Clinton Says: Financial News – Yahoo! Finance

Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it’s time to replace an “on your own” society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.

“Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.”

It’s almost as if she heard about the Pope’s recent remarks in South America, but forgot to check Falling Awake for the substance behind the sound bite.

I’ll lay it out for her again.  Fairness can never be enforced by the government.  Fairness requires that each of us deal with people as individuals, whereas the federal government’s policies are tailored towards groups.

The only “fairness” that government is good at is of the lawn-mower variety, where everyone is chopped down to the same height.

Thank you, no.  But I appreciate the offer!
