You know, I’m old enough to remember when the Left railed against the rich people of America. They used to tell anyone who’d listen that millionaires and billionaires were the problem with the US because they hoarded their money and didn’t pay their “fair share” in taxes.
For some reason, Leftists feel that the rich should be vilified for their success.
I used to think it was simple jealousy. They were angry that they couldn’t live these same lifestyles (well, they could…they simply didn’t want to work for it), so they use the people they hate as a target for their core audience of the middle and lower classes.
Had that been the case, it would’ve been a smart move.
They positioned themselves as “champions of the poor” in this way, and they made it so the poor are ready to vote Democrat across the board every single time.
However, I’ve come to learn over the years that it’s not jealousy.
It’s a sleight-of-hand trick where a magical con man gets you up close, distracts you with something innocuous, and then somehow winds up with YOUR watch around his wrist.
The reason the Left rails against the rich so often is because the Democrat party is led by the rich. By pointing their fingers at the other side, the people that vote for them won’t realize that they’re just as rich as the opposition.
They’re just more duplicitous in the way they talk about it, so they get away with it every time.
The Not-So-Secret Secret Of The Left
We’ve always known this…
Just look at the fortunes of the Clintons, the Obamas, and the Pelosis. These people are ROLLING in it, but they never seem to get even half as much Leftist hate as people who start a successful business.
But the big names in the Democratic Party aren’t the only ones who are rolling in it.
Even local politicians seem to have a knack for making money—especially Democrats.
How do we know this?
Well, just look at the latest news out of Texas. Sixty Democrats from the state legislature fled their state and made a beeline to DC in order to stop the Republican-majority legislature from passing two voting rights bills that they deem “restrictive.”
And honestly, I have no problem with them leaving.
The GOP did it in Oregon, so the Democrats should be able to do it in Texas. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, right?
But the REAL issue here is the fact that the Democrats decided to make their dramatic, “self-sacrificial” getaway by chartering a $100,000 jet. Who’s paying for this jet? The “poor” Democrats themselves? Or the taxpayers?
Is this state legislature just chock full of tone-deaf idiots? Because clearly, they don’t understand what message their cushy flight to DC gives to the actual POOR constituents they’re supposed to represent.
Just Tell Us…. Who’s Paying For All Of This?
But the Texas Dems’ luxurious life in exile doesn’t stop there
Democrat runaway Gene Wu is giving a running commentary on the food he eats while he and his colleagues live it up at the Washington Plaza Hotel where rooms are upwards of $150-$200 a night.
Again, who’s paying for this little field trip?
Because if it’s the taxpayers and I were one of their constituents, I’d be PISSED.
There are a lot of CHEAPER and more practical ways to make this point.
If these people are footing their own bill, they’re doing so at the last minute.
They’re paying TOP dollar for hotel and travel accommodations, which means that not one of them is worried about where their next meal is going to come from.
So, when we get right down do it, they’re either living high on the hog on the taxpayers’ dime…or they’re proving that they’re part of the same wealthy class they claim to be fighting against.
Either way, it’s not a good look.
Here’s looking forward to their arrest when they get back to Texas per Governor Abbott’s statement.
But they should have to answer to their constituents first… THEN they can pay the piper for walking out on their job.
