We can either have a society where people work and earn, and are treated equally. Or we can have a society whose whole purpose is to redistribute wealth. And considering that liberals are among the wealthiest Americans, they might not find such a society to their liking.
Here’s your class warfare. The real deal in all its tawdry liberal glory. The redistribution isn’t going from middle class whites to poor blacks, that’s just another tier of the scam. The actual redistribution takes money from the working middle class and gives it to the government middle and upper classes.
Yes, we the people have a moral obligation to lend a hand to our young, our sick, and our downtrodden, but the role of our federal government is to protect our individual rights so we don’t have to watch our backs all the time, so we can focus on other pursuits, such as bettering ourselves and the world around us.
Leftist Rule for Engaging Conservative Ideas #1: conservatives’ motives are never what they claim. It must be rigorously asserted that right-wingers are invariably driven by impulses more sinister than making people better off or trying to find solutions to the problems we face. New Republic senior editor Jonathan Chait knows that lesson by heart—on the Daily Beast, he argues that from the lowliest Tea Partier all the way up to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Right is animated by a view of “the poor as parasites” and “the rich as our rightful rulers,” a dogma we’ve picked up from philosopher Ayn Rand.
