and the socialists are...


progressive taxation to give tax cuts to benefit the lower class and the middle class while increasing taxes for the upper class.
calls it spreading the wealth.
used to support progressive taxation (jake tapper). not anymore...
used the money she got from the oil company and gave it back to alaskans. i'm pretty sure that she was for spreading the wealth...
gave money to the working class under the poverty line. called the earned income tax credit.
supporter of progressive taxation (taxes increase with income)

and who is a big fan of fdr? mccain.
adam smith:
the necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. they find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. the luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. a tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. it is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion. - the wealth of nations
see what happens when you have over-patriotic, ignorant, anti-intellectual, uneducated fools expressing their point of views?
