Tax the Rich & Redistribute Wealth. Democrats Out of Touch
The Out of Touch Occupy Movement
Tax the Rich
It's everywhere! Now that the Democrats have won the election. Obama's famous speech of redistributing the wealth is back, but this time with the added "tax the rich" from the occupy movement.
The Democrats have done a great job of demonizing successful people and generating a genuine hatred toward American's who have worked hard to achieve success.
Robbing the Rich to Give to the Poor is Fantasy
What would happen if we did tax the rich? Let's go ahead and do just that! Just for the sake of argument, let's tax the rich to the point of having little disposable income. Now they don't have the money to buy cars, hire housekeepers, gardeners, contractors, landscapers, or take vacations, get the picture?
Now we have all these would be workers collecting welfare and unemployment. In other words, living off the government, "we the people," to be exact.
Now let's tax the corporations even more.
In an effort to keep their business afloat, they need to pass that extra expense on to their patrons who are now out of work and living off the government. Of course those living off the pittance they get from the government can't afford the products that corporations have to offer, resulting in the corporations making less money, and having lay people off, putting even more people on government assistance. We now have an ever tightening downward economic spiral that has no way out. It's called socialism and I have personally experienced it, and have been trying to avoid anything that looks remotely like it ever since. If you have not experienced living in socialism or communism you may consider what you have heard about Greece.
When people have less money, their charitable giving goes down too. Wouldn't you, as either a Republican or Democrat want to have more money in your pocket to give to the charity of your choice?
I know what the liberals are thinking: You don't have to tax them that much, just enough so that they don't have way too much and I have nothing.
The fact of life is that no one will stand still while you take shots at them. It is human nature to duck, bob, weave and run for cover.
If we look at how our current taxes were originated, we may actually learn from History.
Republican Groups Creating Balance

Historically it is the desire to take from the rich that has hurt the poor, and even more so, the middle class, more than anything else. The middle class are taxed too heavily, and are basically responsible for paying for the poor, and it is a direct result of the previous attacks that the little people have made against the rich.
Reviewing the history of taxes may jog your memory. There were originally no permanent taxes, just occasional taxes to support war efforts. In England, during the mid 1800's a permanent tax was thrust upon its citizens, and 1913, an income tax became permanent in the United States with the adoption of the 16th Amendment to the Constitution.
Britain had adopted their permanent taxes with the masses voting in favor of taxing the rich to solve poverty. Before they knew it, they were all paying taxes. Americans were seriously against paying taxes. They had left Britain because of the strangling affects of the taxes and had come to America to experience freedom.
It happened in America the same way it happened in Britain. Taxes were going to be for the rich only, and all the little people voted it in only to have it come back to them. The idea of punishing the rich is nothing new. There have been many tax laws presented to do just that, and they end up trickling down and punishing the middle class. Always!
How do they trickle down? For one thing, as I said. No one stands still while being punched in the face. The rich are smart and they find loopholes, while the upper middle class don't know what to do other than suffer it. That combined with the fact that when the government is never quite satisfied, and after it gets a little hand out, it wants more. Just like a spoiled child. Let's learn from history this time and not repeat this never ending cycle.
Working to be independent, using one's creativity or being an entrepreneur by starting and running a business is the American dream. Nothing can replace the satisfaction of accomplishment, and the Republican party for the most part supports these ideals. The Democrats, on the other hand stymie creativity and arouse helplessness and desperation that always results in anger and resentment. All the unemployment benefits in the world will never give a person true satisfaction and end poverty.
