“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Warren Buffet, not putting his money where his mouth is

Super-rich Warren Buffet wrote an op-ed over the weekend in which he whined that the super-rich like him should be taxed far more than they currently are. Pat Buchanan on MSNBC's Morning Joe challenged Buffet asking, [paraphrased]"If you think the rich should be paying more in taxes, why don't you go ahead and scratch a $5Billion check to the government and set an example"?

Buffet could easily afford to fork over another $5Billion. He'd never miss it. No word so far on his response....heh heh.
