If you, for some reason, wish to see and hear the embodiment of the mentality of Leftists concerning economic success, you need go no further then the ravings of one Michael Moore. In talking about “cash”:
We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this . . . . I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates.
Which no doubt is the pre-Reagan individual income tax rates of 70% and more.
Moore’s attitude belongs more on the elementary school playground than in political discourse. He and other Leftists think that the money you earn does not belong to you, especially if you make too much in their eyes. It belongs to them, namely a government controlled by them, in order to redistribute to more worthy outlets than you. If their benevolent government lets you keep some, then you should be grateful.
“What’s yours is ours,” whine the little Leftists.
Well . . . not so little in Moore’s case.
