Now let’s take an example of 100 college students and each of them receives $1,000. Then let’s say that one of the students came up with a great idea for a new phone and 49 of the students spent $500 each on the phone. Wealth update. Fifty students would still have $1,000 in the bank. Forty-nine students would have $500 in the bank and a new phone that is a luxury, not an investment. Then the college student who came up with the idea of a great new phone, would have $25,500; over 50 times wealthier than half her class.
Should she be punished for being rich? Should she be demonized for being rich? Many Democrats would demonize her as they do many of the executives in corporate America. In my scenario, she didn’t force those students to buy her phone, they voluntarily gave up their money. It’s capitalism.
The fact is, many liberals are perfectly okay with having punitive policies for people with money. It’s not so much them wanting to tax them more that bothers me so much, it’s the way they do it. Some Democrats are vicious when describing people who are successful as if these people are criminals. Politicians are criminals. I find this tactic disgusting because they’re doing it for political reasons. They intentionally divide our country through class warfare. Liberals who want to take money away from the rich wouldn’t be brazen enough to go to someone like Bill Gates’ house and steal things from his home, they just want the government to do it for them.
