Actually, it will confuse everybody because they will attribute their motives to you.

As to the socialists (Democrat / Republican, progressive / neo-con, liberal / conservative, etc.), doing the right thing will just make them at best despondent or angry and at worst, fiscally and physically dangerous because, it promotes freedom, liberty, inalienable rights, and prosperity.

To expose the hidden things of darkness, It always astonishes the rest that are half hearted. Just as what is taking place on the hill and around the world in this current time we now live in. One must wound the head out of the house of the wicked. And that starts with ones self. Then it is much easier to do that that is right. Not boasting in ones self but giving glory to God for his inalienable rights and Divine Providence. He is not a respecter of persons and neither is our Constitution.

Twain usually gets it right and with humor.
