Government Takes Care Of The Rich

Advertisement

Editor:

The rich already wallow in obscene wealth. Their income has rose 146 percent since 1980, while middle class incomes remained stagnant. Yet the rich want more. How much is enough? They want it all. They will never stop by all indications.

How do you describe people who impoverish millions of others, just so they can be richer? Is there a word malevolent enough to characterize them? Think about their reprehensible deed — they don’t work for the poor, blind, crippled, needy, lame, unemployed, people who desperately need help. These people don’t appear on their horizon. They are miserable nobodies. If they were somebody, they’d be rich. No, they work for those who have everything yet still want more. And they have the blessing and support of those they impoverish! Never in history has there ever been such a mind washing! Communism had nothing on this bunch. It’s like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders! A frog voting for a snake.

Intelligent people whose minds are capable of encompassing the entire situation grow nauseated of the cheering for the rich. I recently read a letter where the writer said he was sick of the war on the rich. Another said their tax breaks create jobs. I guess he didn’t notice those millions of jobs disappearing over the past decades. How do you explain this? I account for it by quoting Conrad Adeanuer: “God set limits on man’s intelligence but not on his stupidity.”

To those who will cheerlead for the rich, saying they have earned their money and deserve every break, the U.S. government reported that more than 50 percent of rich people were lucky enough to be born into a rich family. Born rich. That’s right: They have known nothing all their days but the government taking care of them in every area.

Mr. Chamberlain expresses the heartfelt sentiments of the Communist. It is straight out of the communist manifesto. It ignores the constitution, and tramples it.

Quoted from the Communist Manifesto found at http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/ Chapter II

“In one word, you reproach us with intending to do away with your property. Precisely so; that is just what we intend. …

the middle-class owner of property. This person must, indeed, be swept out of the way, and made impossible.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society …

The proletariat will use its political supremacy to wrest, by degree, all capital from the bourgeoisie, to centralise all instruments of production in the hands of the State, i.e., of the proletariat organised as the ruling class; and to increase the total productive forces as rapidly as possible.

Of course, in the beginning, this cannot be effected except by means of despotic inroads on the rights of property, and on the conditions of bourgeois production; by means of measures, therefore, which appear economically insufficient and untenable, but which, in the course of the movement, outstrip themselves, necessitate further inroads upon the old social order, and are unavoidable as a means of entirely revolutionising the mode of production.

These measures will, of course, be different in different countries. Nevertheless, in most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable. 1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. 2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. 3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance. 4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. 5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. 6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State. 7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. 8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. 9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country. 10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.

Notice that the liberals (aka Communists) have already achieved items in the above list #’s 2, 5 and parts of 10. Mr. Chamberlain above is suggesting #3 be implemented for certain people, soon to be all.
