We are all socialists now.Time magazine pretty much misused this following reformulation, but the sentiment has proven itself out in the hearts of most Americans, until the Tea Party movement. And it was later attributed to Nixon:
- William Vernor Harcourt, responding to the Labourers (Ireland) Allotment Bill of 1887
We are all Keynesians now.Ron Paul chimed in while selling freedom on the campaign trail. He paraphrased Nixon as saying:
- Milton Friedman, quoted in article favoring Keynes
... we’re all Keynesians now, which meant that even the Republicans accepted liberal economics. He says I’m waiting for the day when we can say we’re all Austrians now.
-Ron Paul, before supporters 2012
And to reformulate past reformulations, and to reflect the temper of our times, especially with the past few years of Tea Party uproar and the recent pro-2nd-amendment furor:
We are all libertarians now.
