I don’t think the liberals WANT to destroy middle class. They just do not understand how economy works. The reason socialism took root in many countries is exactly because on surface it sounds fair and just. All one has to do is observe economies in socialist countries, and the inescapable conclusion is socialism is trickle up poverty. Formerly socialist/marxist countries are moving away from it after suffering 1st hand from its effects. Examples are China, Eastern Europe, India and others.
The problem here in US is that socialist agenda is relatively new and people have not had time to digest its wealth robbing effects. Although experience of last 3 or 4 years has started to awaken people, at least I am hoping it has.
