MICHAEL MOORE IS WRONG – Confiscation of Wealthy Americans’ Money Will NOT Work

|USING CLASS ENVY TO DEFEND UNION GREED
The multi-millionaire and lefty propagandist Michael Moore has come out to defend Wisconsin public unions. He attacked other people’s money: “That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, it’s ours.” But Moore is keeping his millions.
Leftists like Michael Moore want more confiscation of the wealth (i.e., higher taxes) of the so-called rich to keep financing the excessive salary and benefit packages of government workers.

|MICHAEL MOORE to Laura Flanders of GRITtv:
“We are not broke…What has happened is that we’ve allowed the vast majority of that cash to be concentrated in the hands of just a few people, and they’re not circulating that cash. If you don’t believe me, go try to get a loan right now.
They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this — we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it.”
“I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to — we need to see these jobs as something we own…that we collectively own as Americans and you can’t just steal our jobs and take them someplace else.”
|Confiscating the wealth will be self-defeating:|
|Even the most jaded of true-believers on the Left knows that confiscating the wealth and taxing what they consider to be unjust income would be self-defeating. What could be done one time can never be repeated and there would be no one to create jobs…
What would the United States gain if in fact the government did confiscate the wealth of the so-called rich and taxed at 100% all the income above $200,000.00 per household per year?
Thus class warfare rhetoric is just that, rhetoric. It is meant for the consumption of those gullible enough to support the ascendancy of the Socialist/Marxists into positions of power…
For many on the Left the real fear is that for the first times in their lives they would have to find a job in the private sector they so vilify.
Therefore the real interest of these radicals is not the so-called denial of the “right” to collective bargaining but that by eliminating compulsory union dues (which Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana among others have or are doing) a major source of funding for their groups will be eliminated.
