Rep. Moran, Redistribution, and Hell

I know nothing more about Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) than this clip. I don't plan to learn any more, since his statement tells me all I need to know about him.
We have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an antipathy towards redistributing wealth and they may be able to sustain it for a while but it doesn’t work in the long run.

I sometimes envy Christians because it must be very comforting believing there is a special circle of Hell for men like this. I also admit to being a bit green-gilled over some of the moral words their tradition has developed.

Still, even an atheist can assert: anyone who could so much as say out loud contemptuously that the sanctity of private property is a "simplistic notion" and that coercively redistributing wealth is good is beyond redemption. My angst is lessened by knowing that if this bozo thinks redistribution is practical, he must suffer the fires of the inferno in his own soul. At some level, that depth of ignorance has to hurt.

Politicians love socialism...It's how they maintain power: Bribe this gimme-group or that "rights" cause or the other ethical fad, look good and get re-elected for being so "generous" with money that's not yours (Dubya's been doing this with his "Viagra-for-grand-dad" scheme and no-dunce-left-behind for years now, incase it escaped notice.
Thanks to a child-molesting sodomite named John MeinertKeynes and a crackpot named Paulson, it should be sustainable for a while yet...til the bill arrives, anyway:
And guess who gets to pay? Hint-Look in the mirror!
