Abraham Lincoln

Abe Lincoln, “You cannot help the wage earner by discouraging the
wage payer.”

One of the smartest minds in history already knew that socialism doesn't work..When will the liberals learn?

1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
3. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
4. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
5. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
6. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
7. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
8. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
9. You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
10. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves.
- Rev. William J. H. Boetcker

Socialism doesn't work? I think you're mistaking kindness with communism, mistaking a helping hand with handout.

Abe Lincoln, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."

I think you are the one that is confused. Kindness is voluntary, so if you wish to be more "kind" than the rest of us, by all means pay 70% tax if you wish. I won't stop you.

Since we are all quoting Lincoln now:
"I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday." - Abraham Lincoln

The difference between charity and tyranny is force. If I volunteer to help my neighbor, I am being charitable. If I do so with a gun at my head, I am being oppressed.

OT, but found a couple good ones:

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
-- U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
(letter to Col. William F. Elkins)

"These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people."
speech to Illinois legislature, Jan. 1837.
See Vol. 1, p. 24 of Lincoln's Complete Works,
ed. by Nicolay and Hay, 1905)
