Go ahead, fools; tax the rich.
Not that I want the rich to suffer any more than any other Americans, of course. I still hold that we are ALL taxed way too much for what little comes back to us from the Federal Government.
But as the poor and middle classes are driven into poverty and the government starts to loot the upper classes to feed its insatiable appetite for other peoples' money, the rich will suddenly discover that their politics are more in line with the blogs and the alternative media than they realized, and that support for the alternative media may yield some very real dividends down the road.
This may be the watershed moment. And no, don't expect that income tax refund, pal.
