If We Gained Control of the American Government…
Socialists propose to supplant the competitive planning of capitalism with a highly centralized planned economy…If we gained control of the American Government, we would probably begin with a complete revision of the national governmental system. We would do one of two things. We would write an amendment to the Constitution giving the Federal Government the right to regulate all private business and to enter into any business which it deemed proper, or we would abolish the Constitution altogether and give the National Congress the power to interpret the people's will subject only to certain general principles of free speech and free assemblage. ~ Paul Blanshard, "Socialist and Capitalist Planning," The Annals of American Academy of Political and Social Science, July 1932, p. 10
The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. ~ Margaret Thatcher
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings.
The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. ~ Winston Churchill
