Without the “one percent” there could be no nanny state here in this country. The commie libs sure as hell wouldn’t use their own money to subsidize a nanny state. They love the little people for their votes that keep the commies in power but they don’t love them THAT much.
While I appreciate the sentiment and the facts in Murdock’s article, I disagree with his conclusion.
The bottom 50%, and certainly their obamessiah, don’t care how much the 1% pay in taxes, donate to charity, or volunteer their time. They don’t care how many people the 1% employ, or the amount of goods and/or sevices they provide to the economy.
The 1%, and really more like the 10%, are evil. Period. Their assets and lifestyles have been acquired by stealing from workers and minorities. They don’t deserve to have anything. In fact, it would be fair if all that they own was confiscated.
The above may contain a dose of sarcasm, but there’s enough reality in it that, were I among the 1%, I wouldn’t be too enthusiastic about the idea of standing up and shouting it out. Why make oneself an identifiable target to a nation of moochers who would celebrate your demise?
Yeah, that’s what a progressive tax system is supposed to look like.
I also like how the problem isn’t that the bottom 50% of workers earn barely over 11% of the national income but instead that Mittens might get to keep a little less of his hundreds of millions.
GOP, party of the people. /sarc
