Great quote from Alfred S. Regnery

This quote comes from the February 2010 issue of the "American Spectator" in the article "Suicide Prevention" by Alfred S. Regnery:

Politics, in the final analysis, is the art of taking things away from people who don't support you and giving them to people who do.
There's a reason our Founding Fathers built a Constitution that didn't allow for transferring wealth from one person (or group of people) to another.  It's a very slippery (and seductive) slope that allows little hope of escape once you start down that path.  And we have long since started.

Check out this great article.  And also give a look at another resource mentioned in the article--the pamphlet "Economics in One Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt.  It's a 234-page lesson, but a great one.
