The minds of the socialist, class warfare statists of the garden type variety, and their supporters…..are made of silly-putty
This is what the statist believes in, class warfare, the pitting of one segment of society (the wealthy) against the other (the ‘have nots’) in a perpetual conflict in order to break down the civil society to exact control of everyone’s lives. How this is done, is by spreading the false marx meme that acquiring wealth comes at the expense of someone else, you know, like I said before, the “have nots”.
These class warfare types believe in the limited, or objective view of wealth, that there is only so much of it to go around. Just like in the a squeezing of air within the confines of a balloon, they believe that wealth escapes from one area to the next. This narrow minded view of wealth in effect limits the individual of acquiring wealth for him/herself, there is always someone there to take away that wealth they deem as ‘too much’.
Folks, to understand wealth, or should I say value, that eventually leads to accumulated wealth, you’ll have to understand that wealth is like beauty, it’s all in the mind of beholder. In other words, wealth is limitless, its being created from nothing all the time, just go to an art auction and see it in action.
As the great Ronald Reagan once said:
We have so many people who can’t see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one. So they’re going to solve all the problems of human misery through government and government planning. Well, now, if government planning and welfare had the answer — and they’ve had almost 30 years of it — shouldn’t we expect government to read the score to us once in a while? Shouldn’t they be telling us about the decline each year in the number of people needing help? The reduction in the need for public housing?
NOTE: Subscribe this socialist’s failed, miserable, tyrannical ideas onto the ash heap of history….. where they belong.
Hollande says top French earners to pay 75 pct tax
PARIS, Feb 27 (Reuters) – French presidential candidate Francois Hollande said on Monday that top earners would be taxed up to 75 percent of their income if he were elected, as he pounded home the idea of a fairer economy for the lower and middle classes.
The Socialist Hollande, with a comfortable lead in the polls over his rival Nicolas Sarkozy ahead of the April-May election, appeared relaxed and jovial as he fielded questions for more than two hours on prime time television.
Asked if he would modify France’s tax code as president, Hollande said he would undo tax breaks enacted by Sarkozy and seek to make the system fairer by hiking capital gains taxes and levies on income for top earners.
“I can announce here that above 1 million euros (per year), the tax rate should be 75 percent, because it’s not possible to have that level of income,” he said on TF1 television.
Taxation for the rich has become a hot campaign issue, with tax advisers in neighbouring Switzerland saying that higher taxes for the wealthy in France could spark an exodus. Many of France’s richest celebrities already live abroad.
In a presidential campaign marked by acute anxiety over the economy and joblessness, Hollande has taken aim at the bankers and financiers who he says caused much of the economic damage.
A speech in which he called the world of finance his “enemy” drew a sharp retort from his rival, who accused him of tailoring his anti-finance rhetoric to a crowd of activists in France while telling a British newspaper that little would change.
