“Tax the rich” seems to be the key mantra coming out of the occupy protests. A pretty vicious and tired old idea. The IRS is a violent terrorist organization and these people want to give it more power and authority. Down right creepy really. Someone should tell them envy isn’t healthy. Over 70% of these people voted for Obama, and 48% still support him!! Obama is waging wars in seven countries and these people are determined to force rich Americans to pay for his empire building and delusions of grandeur.
These people want to use violence to implement their harebrained ideas because they know nobody would want to go along without being threatened. How many people did Lenin kill? What about Stalin, Mao, and the socialist Adolf Hitler? What was the cost in human life to implement the ideas of national socialism and communism? How is more government theft and coercion going to make the world a better more peaceful place?
“Government is not reason. It is not eloquence. Government is force; like fire it is a dangerous servant — and a fearful master.”
—George Washington, 1797
