What progressive collectivism fails to perceive is the end result of excessive taxation. Back in the Jimmy Carter days my employer at the time was puzzled as to why I wouldn't put in the overtime being offered after I had put in 14 hours overtime. I showed him my pay stubs. Once I exceeded 14 hours overtime a few times it was apparent I was only taking home 35% of my overtime earnings compared to the first 14 hours. There was no major incentive for me to exchange leisure for work. When businesses find themselves in the same boat they have no incentive to grow and hire more. That in turn stagnates the tax base at the least and diminishes it at worst. They didn't get it then. They don't get it now.

What many conservatives fail to perceive is that progressives don’t give a $hit about the end result of their policies as long as THEY remain in power. Too many think that progs want the best for the citizenry and are just wrong-headed.

Socialism is another form of slavery. The difference between socialism and the slavery of the old southern USA is that socialism persuades people to VOLUNTARILY become slaves, and then it uses the fruits of slave labor to enrich the slave masters, eh...I mean government leaders.
Welcome to an America with liberalism in full ascendancy as golfer Phil Mickelson apologizes for doing nothing wrong while the Obama administration lambasts its opponents for justly demanding it apologize for doing plenty wrong on Benghazi.

Welcome to a land where the gravest problem threatening the nation is spending, where the Democratic president refuses to cut, where the Democratic Senate lawlessly refuses to pass a budget and where Democrats thwart congressional GOP efforts to enact spending and entitlement reform, yet the public is conned into believing that Republicans are the problem.

Welcome to a culture in which the political left is frighteningly intolerant...
