    If we go over the cliff because the GOP didn't want to raise taxes on the rich... I think being "pro-the rich guy" will be a hard label to shake off by 2014.

    And most of those post here on USMB.

    Otherwise this is consistent with the only poll that matters taken last month.

    It's not surprising that people would think that way, considering that liberals control the flow of information.

    Yes, they need to change back to being conservative and individualist.

    Meanwhile in France where they have decided to tax the wealthy 75%, the French President and Prime Minister are whining their asses off as the rich are bailing in droves.

    Now wealthy French citizens have responded predictably by moving out of France and last week famed French actor Gerard Depardieu joined the exodus.

    The steady stream of departures has left the Hollande government incensed and this week Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault blasted the rich.

    The English have also seen the same decline in wealthy taxpayers after it imposed a 50% tax. They are now going to reduce that tax after the departure of many wealthy Brits and David Cameron controversially pledged to “roll out the red carpet” for any French residents fleeing the massive tax hike.

    In the meantime, anger at the wealthy continues to rise in France, where “eat the rich” signs are appearing.

    The problems is that you cannot eat the rich if the rich flee before the meal.


    :lol:

    Liberal fools. It looks good on Hollande. What an idiot.
