Dear fellow citizens,
Last week we noticed in the “letters” column of the Index, a citizen (comrade) who promotes the Marxist Socialist ideology of taxing the super rich in America. He also casually mentions taking everything they make wouldn’t pay off the debt.
May we denote “taking everything” and the very thought of “taking” something from someone who has earned it is an immoral, criminal thought to begin with. Albeit, though, this type of thinking is in perfect alignment with Marxist Socialist ideologies the contributor clearly identifies himself with.
Wealthy Americans are part of what made America a world superpower, which evokes another Marxist Socialist trait, which is envy.
Since the dawn of human history there have been societal troublemakers who have caused much misery and even wars by taking things that belonged to others. They do not trouble themselves with visions beyond their own selfish interests; and in their quest for this silly notion of social justice, taking things from others is justifiable in their deranged minds.
We remind the troubled contributor that the super wealthy in our country did not create the financial problems we now have. Where’s the logic in making them pay for someone else’s screw up (also a Marxist Socialist ideology)?
Why not target the real problem, the Marxist Socialists who have infiltrated the government that have caused the debt problem.
