Evaluation Of Some Of Hillary’s Socialist Statements

Is Hillary a Socialist?

I recently received this email as probably over a million other people have. It comes in the form of a test and takes 6 Marxist styled statements that Hillary has made and asks you to guess who said them. I decided to look up these quotes and first see if they are real and second what was the context that they were spoken in to decide if they are really socialist statements. Each are quotes from Hillary, 4 are direct quotes and two are slightly pieced together. Below I will give you the quote in it context and discuss whether or not there is any validity to it being a socialist statement.

This is a copy of the email I received.

Time for a history lesson.

The evaluation of each statement is too long for this article. The evaluation of each statement gives the context of each statement and the date and location of the speech in which the statement was made. It also has a link to a copy of the speech in which it is found. The evaluation of each can be found at http://www.common-sense-america.com/hillaryclintonsocialist.htm
