Out of touch with reality at Penn

To the Editor:

With my daughter being a junior at Penn and loving it, and while also knowing the general disposition of those attending an Ivy League school, it doesn't surprise me that 80 percent of students support a committed leftist ("Support for Obama stays high in DP poll" 11/3/08).

Write down these words, students of Penn: With an Obama presidency changing the capitalism engine that's taken our country to be the envy of the world, to a redistributive socialist/welfare system, Wharton might as well close its doors.

There will no longer be any incentive to achieve. If you do, you'll be punished.

What a crying shame Penn students don't understand this.
