Well, I think progressive are elitists.
Tell me, do progressives believe that the government should be the arbiter of our labor? Do they believe they should take from everyone and pool the
money in government, then redistribute it as THEY see fit?
If it barks like a dog, walks like a dog, WAGS THE TAIL like a dog, I call it a dog, not a cat.
Yes, there are progressive Repubs just as there are progressive Dems.
Tell me, why is it the Progressives think, that going after well paid individuals, has anything to do with going after the true rich? You do know the
really, really, really rich do not make a dime in the individual income sort of way right?
That is why they all have trusts, foundations, etc etc etc.
Now, if I was a progressive I would tell you to shut up and sit down and we will take care of you. We will just take enough from everyone to provide
for you. Maybe a little extra, say 75% for the administration of it, hey the government needs a little mad money for war you know. Also a little for a
perfect surveillance and jackboot society. Just to keep you folks in line. Nothing too drastic, you know like only listening to your phone calls,
reading your emails, tracking your vehicle, running body scans on you when traveling, traffic cameras, monitoring your electric usage, setting your
temperature in your home, providing you with fluoride/lithium in your water, grants to our professors so they can help invaders into your country,
deciding how much health care you receive based on your value and other "non invasive" procedures.
What you do not like that unit in your slum, the government provides for free? You would think you would be thanking them. Listen to the president, he
knows what to do with your labor better than yourself.
There is a DIFFERENCE between the government jackboot progressives and the talkshow hosts you mention.
Who has the power?
