Where was that quote about money...

Somebody posted a quote a while back about how you can't take money from some, give it to others and say the economy is better etc...it was back from like the 1800's. Great quote, just wondering if anybody remembered it and could point me in that direction.

Maybe you are talking about one of Adrian Rogers (1931) quotes?
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom."

"What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving."

"The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. "

"When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for...that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation."

"You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

If you are one of these people:
it's too late now bitch, we're broke and no amount of taxing will reduce the damage people like you have done.
What ya gonna do when your tit drys up?
I can't wait till they start chopping off all these socialist programs and you lazy bitches are all standing out on the street for a handout! Way to fuck this country up, idiots.

It's not 1800's, but I like the quote.
