    Former Wisconsin GOP State Senator Randy "family values" Hooper (2008-2011) happens to be one of those 89 977 millionaires.

    Hooper owns a $600 000 home in Fond du Lac, employs a family maid, and 3 businesses - including 2 radio stations that broadcast automated programing from Fox News Radio.

    Former Senator "Randy" also maintains a second residence in Madison, that he shares with his 25 year old girlfriend (20 years his junior) who, as of February 2011, was awarded the position of a "communication's specialist" by the current Wisconsin GOP Governor. Her "communication skills" were so "special" that, not only did she obtain the job, with an additional $11 128 raise (admidst GOP announcements of proposed civil service/teacher salary cutbacks), she did it without having ever formally applying for the position.

    This millionaire who recently voted to strip the collective bargaining rights of Wisconsin's teachers and civil servants, paid state income tax once in the period between 1997-2008. For the 3 businesses that he owned, Hooper managed to pay no net income tax during the same period.

    poooooooooor baby did you have a boo boo?

    America & the Capitalism we enjoy allows us all the American Dream – the Freedom to succeed & start our own businesses. Capitalism has allowed the United States to be the most successful and Free nation in the world. In America – If you work hard & get an A+, you deserve an A+. However, Socialism’s goal is for everyone to be “equal”, and thus uses Government to perform “economic justice” on its people. Economic Justice is really the “redistribution of wealth” to penalize the successful and reward the unsuccessful. Socialism is Class-warfare, executed by a powerful Government which controls & confiscates the personal property and liberty of its people.

    Socialism’s Flaw: You can never make poor people successful by giving them other people’s hard-earned money! On the contrary, a Socialist Government instills hostility between its people through class warfare. Socialism only incentivizes laziness; wherein, people become increasingly more dependent on the Government because of its abusive power to remove Freedoms from the people, confiscating their personal property and liberty.

    America was founded on the principle of Freedom from Government (our United States Constitution & Bill of Rights). Our Founders fought & died for us: to keep Government limited. Regardless of its sales pitch of “giving to the poor”, Socialism results in a Government which invades & controls more and more of people’s lives. Power and control are transferred; instead of People ruling Government – a Socialist Government rules the People. Socialism is based on Freedom of Government; wherein, the Government determines ‘who gets what’ by controlling, confiscating, & redistributing the people’s personal properties and liberties.

    TPers and right-wingers wont be satisfied until they've dismantled America's public infrastructure and utterly destroyed the middle-class.

    It's amazing how small-minded & thoughtless they really are.
