A Little Trivia.... Do You Know The Correct Answer?

The following trivia questions were posted on Facebook by my good friend Mark Atterson.  He wanted to see how much history we knew or could at least guess.  I didn’t know the correct answer to any of the questions.  I was somewhat surprised at the correct answers of who actually made each statement and it was a little disheartening.  I will let you all read the questions and take your best guess before revealing the correct answers. 

Please try to answer all the questions before looking at the answers.

Who said it?

1) "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

A. Karl Marx

D. N one of the Above

3) "(We) .....can't just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people."

A. Nikita Khrushev
B. Josef Goebbels
C. Boris Yeltsin
D. None of the above

4) "We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own ... in order to create this common ground."

How many did you get right?  Was it an easy quiz or a difficult one?  There have been so many dictatorial and tyrannical leaders in history that it’s difficult to keep them straight sometimes, isn’t it?

Here are the correct answers to the questions.  Check your score….

(1)  D.  None of the above.  Statement was made by Hillary Clinton   6/29/2004
(2)  D.  None of the above.  Statement was made by Hillary Clinton   5/29/2007
(3)  D.  None of the above.  Statement was made by Hillary Clinton   6/4/2007
(4)  D.  None of the above.  Statement was made by Hillary Clinton   6/4/2007
(5)  D.  None of the above.  Statement was made by Hillary Clinton   6/4/2007
(6)  D.  None of the above.  Statement was made by Hillary Clinton   9/2/2005

This is the woman who will most likely be the next Democrat candidate for President – possibly as early as 2016.  (I say possibly because there are already Democrats who are working on a plan to keep Obama in office for a third term.)   President Obama all but endorsed Mrs. Clinton the other night in that lame interview on 60 Minutes, (much to the chagrin of Joe Biden, I’m sure.)

The fact that Mrs. Clinton said all these things in the last five to ten years kind of surprises me.  Then again – it really doesn’t. 

Be afraid.  Be very afraid…
