Socialism 101

My gmail "inbox" has been a little quiet lately, so last month I signed up to receive email updates from In between claims that I'm the last living relative of a Nigerian king, every week John emails me, asking for money. Below is the last paragraph of the latest email and is the most telling about John Boy's real intention. This one paragraph shows why America was smart to reelect George W. Bush (who did better than John Kerry at Yale).

P.S. Sometimes I think Republican leaders in Congress forget why they're here. Let's make sure they know it's not about them and efforts to tighten their grip on power. It's about the American people and efforts to use the power of our government to improve people's lives.

"Ask not what you can do for your country...but what your country can give to you"

You can read the whole email here. There's a great piece about how Republicans are promoting partisanship and division. Howard Dean was not available for comment.

That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves. - Thomas Jefferson
