The Marines’ creed is “no man left behind.” Republicans’ creed is “every heir for himself.”

Maxim: The Marines’ creed is “no man left behind.” Republicans’ creed is “every heir for himself.”

Effect:  Contrast to patriotic and highly regarded entity.  Ironic, hypocritical.  Turn of phrase from “every man for himself” to “every heir.”

Purpose:  Reminder that our most patriotic and highly regarded organization believes in team work and not leaving anyone behind.  Implying a successful society does the same.

Explanation: Points out the privilege and head start of those preaching self-reliance.
