The man of great wealth owes a peculiar obligation to the State, because he derives special advantages from the mere existence of government.This rob-from-the-rich-and-give-to-the-poor idea makes for good theater, but it remains the stuff of socialism and of noblesse oblige claptrap. The man of great wealth has the same rights--and obligations--as the rest of us. The fact that TR is the source of this quote doesn't make the quote any more true. We don't need any more class warfare then Senator Kerry already is trying to inflict on us.Eric HInes
