Over at Gallup, they've published the results of the annual poll questions regarding progressive taxes and wealth redistribution, with predictable results....
47% think the rich should be punished for the benefit of the poor. This 47% are reliable democrat voters who are petty, jealous, and resentful that other people have more than they do. They feel they deserve to receive for free, some of what others have earned, so they vote for the democrat that promises it to them.
If it weren't for the derelict, moocher class who are either drug addicted, lazy, unemployable, shiftless, irresponsible, criminal, or stupidly guilty about being white and rich, democrats could never get elected.
Let's hope this graph stays the same or shifts leftward where more Americans see the folly in taxing the productive in society for the benefit of the unproductive. We're only a couple of percentage points away from the tipping point where a majority are living off the earnings of the minority and Obama is push as many people as he can in that direction. Obama's goal is to get as many Americans destitute and dependent on government as possible. When the moocher class is a majority, democrats will never lose another election.
