The problem with the socialist solution of the capitalist problem: You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the working half is going to take care of them, and when the working half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end for any nation. - Adam Smith paraphrased by Adrian Rodgers
