I Thought I Was a Liberal Like John Wayne Too

John Wayne describes how we always thought he was a liberal until "a certain type that calls himself a liberal" reeducated him that he was right-wing conservative extremist:

Here is John Wayne's wisdom of the ages on wealth and income distribution:

"If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a bitch in a room, and come back a year later, one of the bastards will have most of the money. It's just human nature, and you aren't going to whip it with a lot of laws.
I quite agree. In my case, I always thought I was a progressive, from the old Republican school of progressivism. But many of the people running calling themselves progressives these days are in fact socialists. So I call myself a libertarian, and one day the socialists will come for that too. I suppose that's just as much a part of human nature as John Wayne's $20 bill.

Hat tip to Smitty at TOM, who never thought he was a liberal or a progressive.
