Wherein You Will Learn Why Elizabeth Warren Does NOT Occupy a Significant Place in the Obamster's Regime

Here's why:

"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there -- good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You 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

Can't have THAT kind of thinking in the highest councils of the CorpoRat State!

I love her! This is so true! My husband has said over and over that the reason the rich should be giving back to the rest of the country is that the only reason they got rich was on the backs of all the others who helped them get there. Warren sums it up perfectly.
