Options

  Whoopi Goldberg recently made the threat that she would leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president. It would be worth Trump getting elected just to see her leave but we all know it probably wont happen. Her leaving that is. The Hollywood director Robert Altman, who is now dead, and Alec Baldwin threatened to leave the country if George W. Bush were elected in 2000. He was and they didn't. Even Rush Limbaugh threatened to leave if Obamacare passed. The thing that Obama, Hillary, Bernie Sanders, and their socialist followers can't seem to get in their heads is that the wealthy have options that you and I don't have. If things don't go to their liking in this country they can leave. They have the resources to go pretty much anywhere they want to. You and I on the other hand have to stay and endure whatever crap that they throw at us. If Bernie Sanders is elected and gets his ninety percent tax rate the wealthy will do one of two things. They will really will leave the country, taking their wealth with them. Or they will stay and spend their wealth on toys rather than investing in business or other money making enterprises. Toys being defined as their luxury cars, homes and yachts. That is good for the workers that make the toy's but most of us won't benefit. In order to share the wealth somebody has to create it. I can't ever recall a time that I was hired by a poor person. Many of the wealthy like Obama's buddy Warren Buffet believe that they should pay their fair share in taxes. That is easy for him to say. He is probably not making that much anyway. Let's see what ole Warren would say if they were talking about taxing his assets. He has more to gain by supporting Obama since his railroad will continue to prosper due to the rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline. England taxed the rich in order to support their socialist programs for years and years. The rich left the country or they bought the toys. Margaret Thatcher revived the English economy. Her political philosophy and economic policies emphasized deregulation (particularly of the financial sector), flexible labor markets, the privatization of state-owned companies, and reducing the power and influence of trade unions. Reagan did for America what Thatcher did in England. His cuts of the marginal tax rate, deregulation, and management of the money supply created the longest period of economic growth in American history. Conservatives truly spread the wealth. Socialists only spread the misery.
