And, I agree. To hell with economic philosophy, to hell with principles.
Those who would primarily be personally affected would be the same ones that worked so hard to deprive the rest of us of a voice. Who treat us like $hit, then come around looking for a handout.
Who donate to our enemies, then expect us to roll over to get them special treatment.
F*** that. I agree – it’s WAR!
Just so long as it also applies to politicians of any and all stripes; Union leadership; no cut-outs or set-asides.
As we would say in the military, “la-dee-dah-dee every-body”.

Re: “For me, this isn’t about ‘fairness’ or even raising revenue. It’s about survival. If billionaires are going to use their money to take away my political voice, I will use my political voice to take away their money.Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg can get their tax protection from the Democrats they spend hundreds of millions of dollars to put into office. As far as I’m concerned, the Republican Tax Protection Store is closed. For good. I’d also like to slap an 80% surtax on any profits made by trade with China.Because: Fuck You. War.”
“War?” you ask? Darned right. The globalist billionaires like Warren Buffett have been smirking and bragging about waging a war against everyday people for years, and how much they are winning. Buffett went on record as such some years back, saying “There’s a war by people like me against people like you, and my side is winning.” He then went on to brag that his executive assistant/secretary paid more in taxes than he did.
The use of the term “war” is not hyperbole at all. Ordinary people are accustomed to thinking of wars in terms of bombs, bullets and guns, but warfare can be waged with almost anything, given sufficient imagination and intent. The globalist oligarchs have both, not to mention unbridled ambition, hubris to spare, and vast wealth and power. And to add to the discomfort, many of them are sociopaths.
Frankly, higher taxes is getting off easily, much too easily – after all of the economic destruction, death and misery they’ve caused. Not to mention their naked use of tyranny to attain their ends. In the harder, less-merciful times of our ancestors, they’d have been decorating trees and lampposts by now.
No one wishes for violence or chaos of war, but it isn’t the ordinary people who have loosed the dogs of war. They drew first blood, and when the real history of our time is written years hence, it will record that fact – and not the ridiculous false-flags and propaganda the powers-that-be have used to try to claim the mantle of victim-hood – one they and we both know is utterly undeserved. It wasn’t people wearing “MAGA” hats who burned down America’s cities during the summer of 2020; it was Antifa-BLM-RevCom, in other words, radical movements connected to the deep-state and its color revolutions apparatus.
I am certain these wealthy and powerful individuals would defend their actions in the name of compassion and the common good and all of the litany of the usual excuses offered up as an explanation at such times, but answer this: If globalism and all it offers – “The Great Reset” – is so gosh-darned wonderful, how come the globalists are having to resort to coercion and the use of force to attain their aims?
