I’m beyond seeing red, I’m seeing something that isn’t in the normal spectrum, I’m hallucinating with outrage.
I got a mass email from a GOP politician saying that the Buffett Rule (those earning $1 million a year or more should pay 30% in taxes) isn’t about “fairness” as President Obama says. Noooooooo, it’s about “envy,” and envy is one of the “Seven Deadly Sins.”
So he wants to muscle the Evangelical base into believing that if they support the Buffett Rule, they are not just making a political choice about taxes, they are sinners, and Jesus is weeping, and they are going to Hell. He neglects to mention that greed is on that list as well.
The Mafia is more subtle than this!
Reince Preibus and other GOP Powers That Be, I voted for Bush in 2004, I voted for McCain in 2008 (despite the moron running with him), but you have lost me, and I doubt you’ll ever get me back. And it’s not me, it’s you.
If people are dumb enough to buy this, and Mitt wins, then they get what they deserve. The one percent will be laughing at them over their Long Island Iced Teas at the Maidstone Club for the next four years.
