    A large percentage of DNC attendees think so.
    "Peter Schiff spent Wednesday interviewing folks at the Democratic National Convention, asking liberals whether they would support a new law to ban all profits.
    Those who have even the most basic understanding of the fundamentals of economics will do more than cringe throughout the entirety of this clip, as apparently the entire Democratic Party believes Marxism is the best idea anyone has ever come up with. EVER."

    So what do you think?
    Should ALL profits be illegal? All businesses that earn a profit be forced to pay in 100% taxes?

    I know the Robert Rubin who in this case..

    Rubin falls into the pool"...

    (Describing what happened on “Morning Joe,” journalist Tom Brokaw said Rubin “stepped confidently into the party room and deeply into the pool.”
    Host Joe Scarborough added, “The best part of the story is, he just walked out of the pool, sat there with drinks and continued talking.”
    Bob Rubin falls into pool at party - POLITICO.com

    is generally ALL WET.. would for sure NOT be one of these Democrats.. after all Rubin made
    \ as Chairman of Citigroup and resigned from the company on January 9, 2009.
    He received more than $126 million in cash and stock during his tenure at Citigroup

    I'm not sure what is more scary. That these people may believe we should eliminate profit, or the fact they did not realize this is just a setup to make them look bad. Its like the dihydrogen monoxide scam all over again.

    This is his father's observations:
    As [Obama Senior]
    he put it, "We need to eliminate power structures that have been built through excessive accumulation so that not only a few individuals shall control a vast magnitude of resources as is the case now."
    The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that "theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed."

    They are socialists.

    They believe it is unfair they don't have a nice car, nice house, etc so they want the Federal Govt to step in and make it right/even for them.

    If that means stealing wealth from companies and rich people, then so be it.

    They are the same stupid scum that ruined Russia, China, North Korea, Kenya, Cuba, etc.
