Unity of Liberty and Property

Professor Bainbrige offers a look at the concepts of liberty over oneself and one's property are joined. How can one truly exercise one rights over one's self, if one is denied the fruits of their labor. Hillary Clinton had a howler on this line recently, and it shows the attitude that makes it clear to me why Democrats can not be judged as fit defenders of liberty. To say that the government should disproportionately tax the wealthy is to say that a person outside of yourself has the right to say that you have enough and have no right to what they judge to be your excess. If that doesn't scare you, then you haven't really seen the danger a big government becomes.
