Bonus Winston: Election Choice Edition

From a 1949 Churchill speech that applies perfectly to tomorrow’s choice:

The choice is between two ways of life: between individual liberty and State domination; between concentration of ownership in the hands of the State and the extension of ownership over the widest number of individuals; between the dead hand of monopoly and the stimulus of competition; between a policy of increasing restraint and a policy of liberating energy and ingenuity; between a policy of leveling down and a policy of opportunity for all to rise upwards from a basic standard.

Or, as he put it even more simply on another occasion:

The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings.  The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Now go vote.
