Can You Hear Me Now?

Regular reader will, likely, recall the missives offered in these endeavors to the effect that Neville Chamberlain Trump has always had a simple grift as goal: to implement the Leona Principle, "Only the little people pay taxes!". In particular, that he and the other members of his Billionaires Club object to progressive taxation, now more than ever. Again, the notion of progressivity in income taxation rests on the notion of shared sacrifice, and that such sacrifice should, to some extent, be based on the further notion that those who can afford to pay a bit more should. When income is more or less not starkly unequal, the degree of progressivity need not be stark. It's not full blown Marxism, "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs", but as income inequality grows ever more stark, the maintenance of a Federal budget which maintains according to the needs of the neediest (viewed per capita, not per budget year expenditure) of necessity means that the 1%'s contribution must, of course, grow, being the only ones with any moolah. Since the 99% have a diminishing share of GDP. The 1% have won. They've gotten the President who will take the pressure off, just like he did with Comey.

"What have you got to lose?" was Neville Chamberlain Trump's bait. His first budget is the switch. The 99% will lose a lot. And it didn't take long for the truth to out. But with Right Wingnuts controlling the other 3 branches of government, and the next 2 individuals in the line of succession, dumping Neville Chamberlain Trump for one of them won't fix the problem. The justification, of course, is that the USofA has become two countries: the job/wealth creators and the spongers, and that the Life of Riley enjoyed by the spongers is over. There's a new sheriff in town, and he's kicking ass. Not the Populist Reality promised by the Populist Candidate.

As the dictators which Neville Chamberlain Trump is so enamoured of know, such a bifurcated society can only exist with a Police State. That's close on the horizon.

Will the low information, low education, low skilled voters who did this to the rest of us figure it out? Don't bet on it.

Of course, the top 5 states getting SS disability are Trump States.
