Raise Taxes Everywhere?

Although they attempt to have the average American voter believe they desire a "balanced" approach to governing, one might hear the true positions of the Democrat Party now and then if one listens long enough. Continuing to look more and more like Timothy Spall each passing year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been "preaching" from behind her pulpit of coercion and empire around the world in support of her twisted ideology.

On Monday, Clinton said, "One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner — especially from the elites in every country. .... There are rich people everywhere, and yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries."

There are rich people everywhere!? Sound the alarm! Get to high ground!

Clinton's idea that a bunch of rich people stand in the way of her dream country (perhaps The People's Democratic Republic of High Taxia?) has two major flaws. First of all, "rich people" (naturally defined by Clinton and her fellow political elites) do "contribute to the growth of their own countries." Would anyone seriously insinuate that successful US business does not grow the US economy? Did Steve Jobs then not contribute to the growth of the US economy through the success of Apple? Of course! Clinton's real problem is that, in her mind, rich people are not contributing enough to her cherished warfare/welfare State. Forget that the United States has the highest corporate tax in the world. Who pays those taxes anyway? Ah yes - the rich.

Secondly, prosperity does not trickle down as well as some believe - but on the flip-side, poverty does indeed trickle down quite fast. When those who succeed get more taken out of their bank accounts, they do not expand their business and they do not hire people who need jobs. Apparently, the Democrats wouldn't have it any other way.
