    When you say "we" whom do you speak for? Democrats are all about punishing success and demonizing the rich. Of course the OWS crowds are the one term Marxist president Obama's Brown Shirts. When big labor and Big Education get involved one moves from Hitler's Brown Shirts to am more Communist oriented agitation and propaganda model.

    You really don't see the difference between a call for a return to constitutionally limited government and socialism? The TEA Party activists called for fiscally responsible government. Obama's Brown Shirts just have their hand out to government. And you cannot see the difference?

    Why? Why not have the 47% who pay nothing pay their fair share? I get very angry over the greedy and cowardly 47% who ask the government to steal more of my money in their name. I know many who are the 47%. They made poor life choices. They partied instead of studied. They made bad health choices. They are fat. They are slovenly. And now they want me to work for them. It is disgusting.

    none of that is demonizing anyone. there WILL be class warfare if the richest among us continue to treat their fellow citizens as chattel. when the middle class goes away, there will be hell to pay. at that point the great experiment that is our country will have failed.
    The people who can least afford it are the people who already pay most of the taxes. Get off your fat ass and start making better decisions.

    But if you want a revolution just keep it up. You assuredly shall get one.

    ACtually those 47% you talk about do pay taxes. They have to pay fica as well as state and local taxes. They also make under 20,000 so taxing them more would be inherently evil. I think that the rich, excuse my language, "job creators" have been getting a free ride for too long. Time to pay up.

    Actually thats one of the most comical sure signs that a died in the wool liberal has nothing...THEN they suddenly find Jesus. Not unlike the "hey...we support our troops too" argument.

    Now if only that moronic segment of the '99%' (less than 30, and really...we know who they are. We know who they will vote for. We know who they have ALWAYS voted for regardless of the fact that they have been getting done dirty by that big banker money, union money, etc-0but hey...the core of this IS a protest against influence peddling with politicians, RIGHT?) that are out there preaching against the 1% were, as the very clever cartoon implied, actually creating jobs and wealth...now THEN we would be on to something, wouldnt we? Nah...why **** up a perfectly good mindless protest with 'thought'.

    Yeah. But they don't pay federal income taxes. And those are the big killer and maimer on the political battlefield.

    And you believe that half of the people working make less than 20,000 dollars? Really?

    I am the 53%.

    The smell of rat is pretty strong, and even conservatives don't care much for rats.
    This post belongs in the Conspiracy Theory section.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    So perhaps you pay your fair share. Now we need to go after the greeddy 47% who reap the benefits of massive government without paying for it.
