This is why I will never trust the American people again.....

Only in America ... Could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.
This is not completely true since the same shameful attacks are going on many of the flailing Western socialist countries. But, we must think ans as Alexis de Tocqueville warned 200 years ago....
If ever the free institutions of America are destroyed, that event may be attributed to the omnipotence of the majority, which may at some future time urge the minorities to desperation and oblige them to have recourse to physical force. Anarchy will then be the result, but it will have been brought about by despotism.
As the current executive of the USA uses the envy of people to seize the productive assets of a few to 'distribute' to the many, we become a much weaker nation and people. The American government is being the despot that we all warn about in a systematic way and is slowly but cruelty seizing the liberty of the individual. Not unlike China, after the government seized private property in the 1950's, the people became coarse and destitute, its culture was also systematically attacked and the educated and successful people were humiliated and murdered. I see many parallels with 1950's China and the West today. We will be in for a gut wrenching coming several decades and today's recipients of government largess will leave the world much worse off.
