    I've never seen anyone with more contempt for the working class that produces 90% of the wealth in this country that the top 10% hordes.

    The wealthy should be more careful than to bite the hand that feeds. Or not, which will push the country to make the needed corrective course for progressive taxes again just as the country did after the last time the wealth desparity was this great in the 1920's.

    socialism appeals to several groups

    1) the dependents who want government to take care of them
    2) air headed idealists
    3) machiavellian control freaks who see a socialist government as reins upon society they can grab

    You make stuff up constantly. your workers of the world unite and rise up is specious BS. welfare socialism is the opiate that keeps your kind fat and happy and too stoned to do a damn thing.

    Oh I know let's ask the Founders what they think of corporations. Here is one one from Jefferson. “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” I think we lost that one.

    Our libertarian friends who profess to be so in love with the Founders will somehow someway find an excuse to overlook that particular wise bit of advice from Mr. Jefferson.

    Like Paul Simon wrote in THE BOXER.... "a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest". Those on the right are deaf in one ear.
