Screw the rich

Screw the rich. Make them pay their "fair share". Seize their assets.

Abraham Lincoln has something to say about it:

    "Property is the fruit of labor. Property is desirable, is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others my become rich and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently to build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence... I take it that it is best for all to leave each man free to acquire property as fast as he can. Some will get wealthy. I don't believe in a law to prevent a man from getting rich; it would do more harm than good"

~ "The Freeman: Ideas on Liberty", May 1955, p. 7

Emphasis mine.

Make your own wealth. Stop tearing down others' work. DO YOUR OWN! If others' work can be torn down, so can yours.
