Back To Basics Conservatism

The Pat McCrory campaign recently sent out this quote:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the
weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by
discouraging  thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage
payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class
hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's
initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for
them, what they could and should do for themselves.
Abraham Lincoln

Why is that so hard to understand?
