Craig's party taxes the most productive

To the editor,

Who is this Angie Craig running for the Second Congressional seat? She and her wealthy supporters claim that Angie, too, is quite wealthy. Like the rich Clintons, Angie has decided to run as a Democrat. This is the party that taxes the most productive members of our society and gives to the least productive. It is one of life’s great conundrums. Is it moral to force others to give up the fruits of their labor and then to credit oneself for being magnanimous? Only when we are responsible for our own interests and are free to sacrifice them does our decision hold moral value. We are neither entitled to be unselfish at someone else’s expense, nor is there merit in being unselfish if we have no choice. If Angie wants to claim the title of charitable, she would do well to voluntarily give away her wealth. Absent that, we should all vote for Jason Lewis.
