Elizabeth Warren wants to empower the federal government to confiscate your savings

By J. D. Heyes

As the 2020 Democratic presidential field expands, each candidate is attempting to out-liberal the others by pledging to hand out more freebies to more people, paid for by the U.S. Treasury.

Some of the ideas floated so far: “Medicare-for-all,” free college, free housing allowances, and a dramatically higher mandated wage businesses must pay employees.

One Democratic candidate, Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcohontas” Warren, wants to play Robin Hood. Under the guise of a “tax” hike, she has proposed what many see as an unconstitutional “asset forfeiture” scheme that would allow the federal government to “seize” assets owned by “the wealthy” so she can redistribute it to other Americans in the hopes that she’ll hook them on government largess — and Democrat ‘generosity’ — for generations to come. 

But there’s something even more sinister behind Warren’s bid to portray the fictional English folk hero. According to the American Left, which is fundamentally no different from the Nazi Left, or the Stalinist Left, or the Venezuelan Left, is that they believe it’s a sin to be smart enough or lucky enough or industrious enough to accumulate wealth. To the Warren Left, being rich is an unfair construct simply because not everyone can be.

Yet, stealing someone’s personal property because you despise the fact that they have it is not enshrined in American law, nor is it a constitutional construct. It’s just plain theft, and, as National Review’s Kevin Williamson notes, that’s the crux of Warren’s plan: She wants to federalize the hated state-level concept of “asset forfeiture” without the pretense of anyone having committed a crime.

Every other authoritarian Leftist in modern history ensures their own creature comfort by stealing it from the people. If she gets her way, a President Warren would enrich all-powerful government in exactly the same way: Legalized theft.

Then, aside from elites like her, most Americans will finally be equal. Equally poor and equally miserable, that is.

  1. such legislation is unconstitutional and thus ILLEGAL! there is no authority in the constitution for the government to even attempt such legislation!

  2. By herself, she declares netting almost a million dollars a year in income… not counting family members benefiting from the fake Indian’s lies for gain and political hand in pockets.

  3. Wonder if these Socialists understand Socialism means civil war?

  4. Simple, get rid of the Constitution. It’s all in their plans.

  5. The left is guano crazy.

  6. “You cannot legislate the poor into freedom ly legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receivies without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the giervment doesn not first take from somebody else.When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does not good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

    ~ Dr Adrian Rogers,

  7. Socialists do not care about laws unless those laws serve their purpose. Step 1 has been going on for years: Hateful rhetoric against “The Rich”. Step 2: Exorbitant taxes. These steps have been readily accepted by children, unthinking voters looking for free stuff, and by elites, anxious to please, not realizing that they are the cow being led to slaughter. Taxes will, of course, not be enough to support Ponzi Socialism for long and will be followed by Confiscation of private funds and property. This last can’t-hjappen-here concept is already being promoted by the “it” girl of the Socialist-Democrat Party.

  8. it is unconstitutional. there is no doubt about it. liawatha needs to be slapped down and slapped down hard!! there is no excuse for a US senator to knowingly defy our Constitution!
