The left wanting to tax the rich, yes, but why they want to, is not because of their espoused equalization of wages?
They say that this is why, but that is propaganda.
If we remember who the left is! They are the party of fabrication and deceit!
They lie, cheat, manipulate, distort the truth, obstruct, redefine, twist, cover-up, YOU NAME IT, to get their way.
They have been doing this with ever-increasing boldness over the last 20+ years.
They have perfected the concept of telling the same lie or lies long enough; to the point where they convince not only their audience that what they say is the truth, but they even have the ability to convince themselves.
There is no shame in what they will do or say!
But, taxing the rich is just another one of their strategic smoke screens to get the public to believe they are truly concerned about the under privileged and they (the good guys) are going to get them their fare share by increasing taxes on the ruthless greedy rich guy.
But what is the real truth as to why?
Why they really want to tax the rich guy has nothing to do with equalizing wages or leveling the playing field, it is really to get their hands on more dollars, ~$80 to 100Billion; for the purpose of continuing to play Santa Clause to a part of their voting bloc. They simply want this money to look like the good guys to the millions who are currently receiving hand outs from the federal government, so that they can continue to advance their voting bloc. They are smarter than we think and they know exactly what they are doing! They know that $80-100B is not enough money to do anything to reduce the national debt. But they don’t care about the debt! They could care less about the debt, as a matter of fact I believe they want the debt to rise. They simply want more $’s to continue to play Santa!
I believe that it is part of their strategy, to leave a towering debt for the next conservative president to struggle with, which will make their presidency more difficult and in turn make a democratic president look like a more desirable option.
Here is the proof, if the left were truly serious about equalization of wages then they would want to help the average wage earner who only makes about $40-50K and has to contribute to their own retirement savings which in a life time would be lucky to amount to $500K. But no, no help here for those who pay the bulk of government and teacher union wages and benefits, these people (the average wage earner) are not their voting bloc.
And, if the left was really serious about equalization of wages they would be going after a reduction in wages and benefits to the government worker and big union workers (teachers and auto workers) who’s salaries range from $70-110K and pensions and retirement benefit packages that equate to a self funded 401K of $1.3M+. But, no can’t touch these people, these people are their voting bloc.
Therefore, I believe it is simple, it is all about the voting bloc. If it advances the democratic voting block it is good, if not it is bad. THE RIGHT SHOULD LEARN TO THINK IN THESE SIMPLE TERMS!
The left has only one main agenda, stay in power at any cost, and change a constitutionally conservative America, by force, to their progressive socialistic ideals.
