True enough! But thegood news is that there is always somewhere for a self reliant person to escape to. That's why Texas and other states are profiting from successful people arriving from places like California, New Jersey, Illinois, and New York. There are places where people will rob you with a pistol to your belly and other places where people will rob you by passing laws to increase taxes. But both groups are common thieves.

Atlas is shrugging and Dan Mitchell is laughing.

I predicted back in May that well-to-do French taxpayers weren’t fools who would meekly sit still while the hyenas in the political class confiscated ever-larger shares of their income.

But the new President of France, Francois Hollande, doesn’t seem overly concerned by economic rationality and decided (Obama must be quite envious) that a top tax rate of 75 percent is fair.” And patriotic as well!
