Well, right now, it's a screaming call of 'get the rich! get the rich!'. If it isn't envy, I'm not sure what else class warfare is based on. This
little class war is one we've been led by the nose to the skirmish lines of and kicked in the ass to cross into fighting with. Bush started it and
Obama has made an art of it. We're completely and totally focused on fighting each other, not those who make these problems for us.
Soros, Gates and others in the 'So rich, money loses all meaning entirely' crowd are the ones WRITING the laws..or, more properly, giving
instructions to the little people who do write such things. Those we would imagine most deserving of being taxes for 100% punitive reasons are the
LEAST likely to ever see a dime lost that way.
However, as some have noted... If we tax the rich at 80% or 90% or even MORE....ALL their money belongs to us, the people. There. We're at the end
and all the B.S. is cut out. Now where are we? Well... no one left to hire anyone is one outcome. The worst one though? All the taxes at 90+% still
won't fix humpty dumpty and we're still crashing. It may only slow it down.
So...When taxing cannot SOLVE the problem anymore..what is the REAL point of punitive taxing? We're miserable so we;re going to make damn sure anyone
doing better than we are is equally miserable? There is nothing else to gain. Envy, may be the wrong word....but there is nothing constructive left in
higher taxes, only self defeat beyond this point, IMO.
