One response to “Jefferson Was Right, Democrats/Liberals are Wrong

  1. Much has been made of spreading the wealth and of class envy by the left.

    What is telling to me is how quickly liberal open-mindedness and fairness go out the window when there is someone to hate en masse- the rich and greedy.

    What is a tax burden across demographic groups that could be considered fair? Or, from different ends of the spectrum, unfair? That all pay the same dollar amount? Surely not; those without can’t afford it and for those with, well, it would be a pittance.


    So, how about a common percentage (judeo-christian giving is traditionally a tithe; a tenth)? For those that make little, the taxation is little; for those that make a lot, the taxation is greater, but still the same relative burden. But no, for some illogical (well, that’s libs for ya) reason that’s considered unfair as well.

    Instead, for decades those that earn more have paid a greater percentage in taxes. Reagan’s tax cuts in the 80s simply reduced the percentage burden to merely astronomical, and prosperity ensued.

    What saddens me is that people don’t seem to realize that the top 10 percent of earners currently carry 70% of the overall tax burden. No, the rich are instead demonized as mean and greedy, and it “serves them rght” to be further penalized for success or fortune.

    It’s a good thing that our schools have failed at mathematics. It helps keep the ignorant ignorant and the lazy looking for a ride and, since they have the right to vote, they’ll vote themselves for whoever promises more goodies.

    I am often asked why we have chosen to home school. I’ll leave you with another quote, from Lincoln, “The philosphy in the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.” I do so wish to save my children’s minds.
