If God were a Democrat, the parable of the talents would’ve gone this way:
Man with ten talents, I’m taking away five of your talents and giving them to the man with one talent. After all, he must’ve been cheated or wronged by society in some way. And you’re making too much money; it’s not fair.
But it would be politically incorrect to just take those five talents from you. So, I’m going to tax you more heavily, and then I’ll give those talents to the guy with one talent in the form of an “economic stimulus package”.
