Absolutely 100% incorrect....
First we have History right here in the US of A. Bill Clinton Campaigned and WON election selling a retroactive income
Tax increase on the wealthy. Won election, passed it, IRS and courts held it legal
. The State of California
has done the same thing. What has happened before, can happen again and in worse fashion.
Now let look at the real world that we live in of: Class Envy, You didn't Build that, Business Don't create Jobs and the evil 1%-ers. So you really think that when the class envy hustlers start telling the masses that if only we soaked the evil 1%-ers and rich (translated to anyone with more money than you by the class envy sirens) their lives could be made better, their schools made better, more fire, more police, more free **** that they would NOT vote for the politician that promises them free stuff? Not a chance. The "evil rich" are too small of a voting block to stop it and they are the easy scape goat when the politicians need to blame someone for why the masses are poor, have crappy jobs, and can't buy the latest IPhone
with their government
When one's head
is in the sand...another body part is in the air.
The world and USA are heading down a road that History has shown to be bad....real bad...but people today think we are smarter than the lessons History is trying to teach us.
