While I think it unlikely that Obama and the Dems would do this, I don't doubt for a second that there are many liberal/progressive types who would like to. Another good reason to put more of your savings in taxable accounts, although there is little to stop a government when the majority of people support a totalitarian government. Just remember that Hitler was elected by a majority of Germans before he declared himself to be god.

I have an office co-worker that agrees with this. Call him MG. MG is a total loser. Has a gambling addiction; is 200k in debt; terrible health because of his other addictions; I could go on what a loser he is.

MG is a liberal extremist. A leftwing authoritarian. Last time I played golf with him (I won't any more because he p!sses me off so much), he argued that people like me who are disciplined, eat right, save for their retirement etc.. were supposed to balance things out for undisciplined blokes like him.

MG is a self admitted commie. "From each according to his ability. To each according to his needs".

The other coworker that was playing with us was silent but by his looks, I could tell he thought MG was a kook.

They are out there and they breed.
