With the economic woes that America is experiencing right now, people want to point fingers. It is understandable that people want their state of economic dispair to have a face. Some blame the president, others fault Wall St., and some just want those that are rich, to not be so rich. This is the libs' favorite talking point, point a finger at all those "greedy" rich people and get people to turn against them. As if taking money away from the wealthy is going to solve our problems. But why does this seem to resonate with so many people, and where is the common sense to take it one step further and disprove the myth. Ok, I'm going to set up a hypothetical scenerio, you have Mr Rich who is a Multi-millionaire. Mr Rich's neighbors don't like the fact that he has so much money so the write a letter to congress and say, "hey, Mr.Rich has too much money you need to raise his taxes because we feel inferior with our middle to upper middle class earnings." After all if we are going to pinch pennies, then Mr. Rich should be pinching too right? So, Mr. Rich is told to give Uncle Sam 70% of his income for taxes because he is just such a "greedy" person. In turn, the two small businesses that Mr. Rich owns and operates has to lay people off. People lose their jobs, and Mr Rich starts pinching pennies to keep his businesses afloat. Now, Mr Rich's neigbors got what they wanted, and he is struggling like the rest. But, where does all of this extra tax money go? It goes in the government's pocket, not to pay down the deficit, but to continue taking from our kids and grandkids, and send us into national and global economic meltdown. They say, "misery loves company", but forcing the wealthy to be poor, or to put them on our level, does not solve our problem. No person, or entity should have the right to tell someone that they can't continue to make money or keep their money. So, in the end, where was the greed, and who benefits? Do the neighbors have anything to gain other than being able to sleep at night knowing that someone doesn't make more than they do. Doesn't seem worth it.
