Mr. Carlin begins with a false premise which presumes that wealth, money or income is the government’s and they decide how much to give people and continues by operating under a mistaken understanding of what conservatives actually advocate.
Conservatives don’t say we need to give rich people more money. Conservatives assert that EVERYONE should be allowed to keep more of their OWN money because; it is theirs, they know better what they want to do with it, they use it more efficiently and sucking dollars out of the economy in a recession lengthens a recession.
The notion that the fruits of our labor belong to the government for reapportionment is anathema to the American experiment in liberty. For crying out loud the fundamental basis for our revolution was taxation. Next time you read a comment like Carlin’s give a moment to consider what it implies rather than simply react to its demagogic appeal.
Carlin; often funny. A deep thinker? Not so much.
