When you raise taxes on one group, and increase the welfare rolls dramatically, you're guilty of abusing both groups. When you push government control of medical care and the crazy taxes that inevitably come with socialized medicine (regardless of the euphemism de jour), it's a form of tyranny. When you put us TRILLIONS of dollars into debt-so deep that it becomes generational theft-you've abused future generations and stolen a good portion of the American dream from them.
The inevitable inflation and economic stagnation resulting from Barack Obama's nouveau-fascist economic policies are going to make Carter's years look like child's play. What foreign or domestic investor will feel secure putting his wealth into an American company when they know the President of the United States can enter the scene and nullify contract law and debt obligations on a moments notice? He's behaving like a wannabe dictator of a banana republic!
When you tranfer wealth in an egregious fashion from one group to another in the name of "social justice", all you're doing is causing class hatred, strife, and predictable law-breaking where the tax code is concerned. It's theft, pure and simple. When the White House and other congressional Kleptocrats (RINOS included) attempt to control the salaries and/or bonuses of Wall Street types in a dictatorial fashion, I wonder what the hell country I'm in!
The cap and trade energy policy (Cap and Tax) that the left is pushing is just more kleptocracy in the final analysis. It'll dramatically increase the cost of energy on everyone.
This "government on steroids" approach has NEVER, EVER turned out well for the people, but it's the BOMB for the politicians!
