So­cial­ism’s a breeze with money

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - J.V. PRESOGNA Erie, Penn­syl­va­nia

When some­one with a net worth of $60 million talks about be­ing a so­cial­ist, our first ques­tion should be, “When will she give away the all that money?” (“Cyn­thia Nixon: I’m a demo­cratic so­cial­ist,” Web, July 11)

Peo­ple like ac­tress and New York gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date Cyn­thia Nixon, Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi and other “so­cial­ist democrats” are ex­actly what crony­ism is all about. They, the very wealthy, keep all the money and get all the perks, then per­haps as­sign a few bucks a month to all the oth­ers.

Ms. Nixon has no idea what so­cial­ism re­ally is. In a so­cial­ist coun­try, there is no in­cen­tive to do any­thing. So­cial­ism can ex­ist only in the Catholic Church, in which the clergy takes a vow of poverty, or on a small farm, where the ex­tended fam­ily shares all of the wealth.

Ms. Nixon is a phony and so is ev­ery­one else who talks about so­cial­ism in Amer­ica. I live be­low the poverty line, and I still do not want to tax the rich. That’s be­cause I own 1,500 copy­rights and should be rich my­self.
