    If you support economic justice you support Marxist communism!
    You have to admit he has all the Marxist viewpoints. He is for the progressive income tax which Radical Karl called for and James Madison opposed. He is for economic justice which is also in the Marxist's tool bag. Yep. When it quacks like a duck...

    If he wins the republican primary I will vote for him. This time it has to be anybody but the Marxist.

    There have always been statists willing to use whatever tool is given them to expand the scope, size, reach and tyranny of government. We largely call them Democrats but there are a large number of Establishment Republicans among them.

    Slavery of a different sort was acceptable to a very large number of our great grandparents as well. Would you argue for a return to slavery?
    Some mistakes just have to be fixed.

    I suggest you concern yourself with the effective tax rates rather than the marginal rates.

    Effective rates are the ones that count. Marginal rates are for those who want to dissemble, confuse and obfuscate.

    And now we have even more evidence that those on the left are stoking this class warfare, and inciting violence....Cornell West tonight.

    "I think the problem is that the poor children, keep in mind it's 42% of poor children who live at or near poverty, it's 25% in poverty. Our audience needs to keep that in mind." Cornel West said on MSNBC this afternoon.

    "Poor children need more than just a $1,000 for their family, they need a war against poverty to make it a major priority in the way which we have a priority for Afghanistan, and a priority to bail out banks, and a priority to defend corporate interests when it comes to environmental issues," West said about more and new entitlements for the poor.

    Professor West didn't just call for another war on poverty (the first war was fought by Lyndon B. Johnson), but went on to say that the push for more entitlements "is going to be fought in the streets." West showered the Occupy movement with praise for making people aware of the issue.

    "It's a major question of priorities here. That's why the Occupy movement is so important because some of this is going to be fought in the streets. Civil disobedience does make a difference," he said.

    "Corporate greed now is an issue everybody has got to talk about. Wealth inequality. Everybody must talk about it because of the Occupy movement," Mr. West concluded.

    FACT: Clinton increased revenue by 75% over his 8 years. Bush increased revenue by 28% over his 8 years.
    Perhaps Clinton had the benefit of a fiscally responsible Congress controlled by Republicans under Speaker of the House Gingrich.

    You better be ready! Bloomberg recently reported that workers' compensation is now at the lowest level relative to gross domestic income that it's been since 1955. In contrast, corporate profit is at the highest level it's been since 1950.

    U.S. Workers

    Workers in this country are not going to take this sh*t forever.
