Giant Sucking Sound of money leaving your wallet

It turns out that Ross Perot’s giant sucking sound was not the sound of jobs leaving the US for Mexico.  Instead it was the sound of 1 out of every 6 dollars being sucked from the pockets of people who earned the money and given as handouts to people who did not.

Some relevant points:
government spending on benefits will top $2 trillion in 2009
* Benefits, such as Social Security, food stamps, unemployment insurance and health care, accounted for 16.2% of personal income in the first quarter of 2009, the highest ever (since 1929 when records started)

One of Ayn Rand’s quotations from years ago is very apropos:  Observe that any social movement which begins by redistributing  income, ends up by distributing sacrifices.

There is only one way for a scheme to take earned money from one group and give it to another will end, just as the scheme in the U.S. South which took the earnings from the slaves and gave it to the planation owners ended – badly.  It has happened any place where one group believed they had the right to make sacrificial sheep out of another group, no matter how good they thought their purposes were.
Anyone who disagrees is deluding themselves into ignoring the fact that no matter how hard they attempt to deny it or no matter how hard they want to believe their motives are pure, they are the plantation owners using force to make another group work for them.  It was wrong in the South and is wrong now.  But at least the racist, sexist bigot Sonia Sotomayor seems to approve of schemes like that of the South which classify people according to gender and ‘race.’
Personally, I thought we were always part of the human race, but apparently there still exists racist, sexists, bigots think otherwise.
