    That's not very likely, Haymarket.

    The rich can easily afford to protect themselves from the rabble or, more probably, they'll just move elsewhere. If you wants more jobs to leave the country, that philosophy will certain help the push along.

    This is an example of the arrogance that some of the rich will display.

    They think they're irreplaceable, that nobody else is capable of doing what they do. That they're special, better than everyone else.

    300 million people in this country, TD. There's always someone to take your place. That's the market for you.

    And people accuse liberals of being elitist? Listen to this guy. He thinks the country can't get along without him and his kind to provide for us. That he's more important than everyone else because he has larger numbers in some computerized bank account.

    When democrats support policies, it's buying votes, when republicans support policy, it's not. This is one of those retarded whines that people keep making because it's easy and requires no real thought to formulate, but never understand why it doesn't get taken seriously by any one else except those others on the extreme.

    perhaps.perhaps not.

    It has happened. And it could again.

    If people want to depart the nation because their taxes are being raised 3 points, then that is on them. I do not see it happening.

    rich people don't exist for the purpose of funding your socialist dreams. and the fact is states with high taxes are losing wealthy tax payers. and when Sweden had massive taxes, most of their star athletes moved to monte carlo. SO you can attack me personally because you are jealous and ignore the point I was making which had nothing to do with me personally

    there is a difference between buying votes by promising your minions the money of other people versus gaining votes by telling people that you will protect what they have earned. Of course to some who think that the government really owns all the wealth I can see why the positions would be seen as similar

    Where and when has it hppened?

    I see it happening every day. I'm in Central America at the moment and many are arriving from the United States, and Europe, daily.

    Canadians are certainly profiting from higher US taxes and the refusal of the Obama administration to drill for oil. Our oil companies are booming as a result The Corporate tax rate in Canada is about 24% which makes it quite attractive for companies to move north. As well, doctors are among "the rich" and they're leaving also.

    These BHO plans are among the worst examples of short term thinking I've witnessed in my lifetime. They'll have the support of the 'something for nothing crowd' but it will all be temporary. Europe is cutting back while Americans sink deeper in debt. I never thought I'd see that day.

    You are unfamiliar with the concept of revolution?
