I have finally realized that right wingers think that we Progressives don’t like rich people. That is why they point out that Pelosi is – gasp – rich, and Edwards is – shock – rich, and FDR was – horror – rich! And then there’s that Soros fella… whoah, get a load of him!
Well, I’ve got news for you dingbats over there on the right-wing: I love rich liberals! I wish all rich people were liberal. How do you like that?
You see, dear right-wing mouthbreathers, it is not the having, accumulating, spending or inheriting of money that we liberal Progressives dislike. No, heavens no! It is the mega-greedy, mean-spirited, heartless agenda taken up by those in the conservative right-wing establishment. This involves such things as supporting legislation that unfairly benefits the wealthy at the expense of the poor; fighting fairness in taxation, education and opportunity for everyone (including those despicable poor people the right-wing hates so much); breaking laws to benefit themselves and their peers; and generally treating the rest of the world with utter disdain.
That’s the kinda thing we don’t like, and that’s the kinda thing we are going to eliminate. I suppose to be nice about it, I should suggest you greedy-ass right-wingers enjoy your moment now while you still can. Your days of screwing the rest of us for your own selfish benefit are numbered. The tide is turning, and we are ALL going to be rising with this tide. . . even you guys.
