Socialism Defined

"Evil acts can be given an aura of moral legitimacy by noble-sounding socialistic expressions such as spreading the wealth, income redistribution or caring for the less fortunate. Let's think about socialism. Imagine there's an elderly widow down the street from you. She has neither the strength to mow her lawn nor enough money to hire someone to do it. Here's my question to you that I'm almost afraid for the answer: Would you support a government mandate that forces one of your neighbors to mow the lady's lawn each week? If he failed to follow the government orders, would you approve of some kind of punishment ranging from house arrest and fines to imprisonment? I'm hoping that the average American would condemn such a government mandate because it would be a form of slavery, the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of another. Would there be the same condemnation if instead of the government forcing your neighbor to physically mow the widow's lawn, the government forced him to give the lady $40 of his weekly earnings? That way the widow could hire someone to mow her lawn. I'd say that there is little difference between the mandates. While the mandate's mechanism differs, it is nonetheless the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of another. Probably most Americans would have a clearer conscience if all the neighbors were forced to put money in a government pot and a government agency would send the widow a weekly sum of $40 to hire someone to mow her lawn. This mechanism makes the particular victim invisible but it still boils down to one person being forcibly used to serve the purposes of another. Putting the money into a government pot makes palatable acts that would otherwise be deemed morally offensive. This is why socialism is evil. It employs evil means, coercion or taking the property of one person, to accomplish good ends, helping one's fellow man."

Dear Mr. President, I am not crazy.

Dear editor:

Stimulus plan that works.

I've read in the Jamestown Post Journal how two people wrote about a plan that would bail out the economy, and their plan is good but not right. One wrote, take 87 Billion dollars and divide it with 200 million people 18 years and older. Each would get $425,000.00 but really each would get $425.00. Another wrote, take the $784,000,000,000.00 used to bail out the insurance companies and banksthat were in trouble, divide that money with the 200 milliom people, that each would get about $3,900.00. This is good, but it would not stimulate the economy much.
Now I've never gone to coolage and I'm not good with math but I do know that $784,000,000,000.00 is a great deal more than 200,000,000. Why can't the government take $100,000,000.00 and divide this among the 200 million people that filed a tax return like the last stimulus package, each woud receive $500,000.00. Now this not tax free, you would have to pay taxes on this money, what ever the tax percentage would be. The one person figured about 30%. So 30% of $500,000.00 each person would end up with $350,000.00, this would fix a lot of problems.
People would be able to pay off the mortgage on their home, student would be able to pay for collage, people would be able to put money in the banks, so the banks would have money to lend. People would be able to buy things, so jobs would call people back to work to make the products for the consumer. Job problem solved.
As I said, I'm no wizard, but with a plan like this, the national debt would not have to be as big as it is. The taxes each person pays for this money could go towards paying off the national debt and a lot of problems would be solved. So why can't the government see this and figure it out. If someone has and anwser to this, I would like to know.

Why I'll Miss President Bush


President Bush will soon be heading home and for many that day cannot come soon enough. Count me among those who will miss him and his bedrock decency.


He had a rough road from day one. His first inauguration struck me as a portent. I was there, shivering in the grandstands on Pennsylvania Avenue. At the exact moment the president heard "Hail to the Chief" for the first time and was announced to the audience, a sleet storm descended from the skies.

It has never let up.

Through it all Mr. Bush kept his head up and soldiered on. He took the criticism in stride. I remember riding with him in his presidential limousine to the Washington Hilton for a speech. A woman standing at an intersection directed an obscene gesture at him that I had hoped he missed. The president waved to her and with a bemused look said to me, "Did you see what she did?"

Many other Americans, particularly the "values voters" who helped elect him twice, will miss him because of what he achieved: Samuel Alito and John Roberts on the Supreme Court, children in schools that now are better because they are accountable, African women who now have medicines for their HIV-infected babies, and religious charities that are finally being treated by government as partners instead of rivals.

I remember coming to the West Wing one morning before the daily 7:30 senior staff meeting and seeing Mr. Bush at his desk in the Oval Office, reading a daily devotional. I remember the look of sorrow on his face as he signed letters to the families of the fallen. When he met with recovering addicts whose lives were transformed by a faith-based program, he spoke plainly of his own humiliating journey years ago with alcohol. When a Liberian refugee broke into tears after recounting her escape to freedom in America, the president went over and held and comforted her.

Little acts behind the curtain like these inspired intense loyalty by staff members. They spoke of someone never too busy or burdened to care -- like when he took time on Air Force One to call my wife when she was sick. The president's true character rendered his media image pure caricature.

Mother Teresa was asked at the end of her life whether she was discouraged because after decades of caring for the dying and destitute in Calcutta little seemed to have changed. She replied, "No. God doesn't call me to be successful. God calls me to be faithful."

History will decide whether George W. Bush was a successful President. But he was faithful. He had a charge to keep and he kept it.

Mr. Towey was director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives from 2002-2006. He is president of Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa.

The Do-It-Yourself Tax Hike

Obama doesn't need the presidency to raise his own taxes.

On multiple occasions, Barack Obama has declared that it is fair and even virtuous for "people who have done well like me" to pay higher income taxes. Then why didn't he?

[Barak Obama]

My colleague Kim Strassel has reported on a voluntary federal fund for liberals who want to contribute more taxes than they owe -- but, alas, almost none do. The annual collections are less than 0.1% of all tax collections. As Ryan Ellis of the American Shareholders Association asks: "What's the difference between Obama and the big corporations who 'cheat' the government by taking advantage of what the tax code affords them?"

Mr. Ellis's group has reviewed Mr. Obama's tax returns for the past eight years. The Illinois Senator has dutifully paid his taxes in full. But in no year did Mr. Obama make extra tax payments to help reduce the deficit or fund all the spending programs he favors. If Mr. Obama's tax plan had been in place over the past 12 years, he would have had to pay $250,727 more in federal taxes over this period.

In the end Mr. Obama's income tax hikes aren't likely to raise as much revenues as he expects because "rich fat cats" -- as they did after Bill Clinton's tax hikes -- will arrange their affairs to realize and report less taxable income. Famous was Hillary Clinton's accelerated final bonus from the Rose Law Firm, which allowed her to keep more money than under her husband's pending tax plan. Studies indicate "rich" Americans were able to cut their extra payments by as much as 40% simply by timing their income to avoid the Clinton tax premium. Expect more of the same in 2009. Rich liberals may be fanatical about wanting to redistribute the wealth -- but yours, not theirs.
