For over 20 years I've known that talk radio was brainwashing a lot of good, but poorly educated Americans with 'Pro-Wealthy' lies like 'Cutting taxes raises revenue for the government' and 'if you get to keep your tax money you will become rich and won't need government'. And it really angers me that liberal politicians and journalists would always dismiss my urgent pleas for them to address Limbaugh's lies by saying, 'no one with a brain listens to them stop wasting your time'. Finally in recent years thes right wing liars are being held accountable by the Left, but it's too late for a generation or more of Americans who have already been thoroughly brainwashed, Ayn Rand style.
When was the last time you heard a politician or pundit point out the facts listed in the paragraph below? The fact is that most Americans don't know these historical facts about the USA, taxes and economic history. Thank god Bernie Sanders is speaking some economic truths, but it is tragic that most Americans have to hear this for the first time in 2016 and then from an avowed Socialist. You don't have to be a Socialist to share-in the economic philosophy that made America great. I've been pushing the paragraph below for 15 years!
From 1930-80 the wealthiest Americans paid between 70% to 90%
federal income tax and that's what allowed us to build the American
Dream. How else could we afford it? Between 1930-80 we fought and
paid for WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam War, we built our entire US
Interstate Expressway System, Roads, Electrical Grid, Telephone, our
main Bridges and Tunnels-We Made every Car we Drove and we wore just
the Clothes we Sewed and WE WENT TO THE MOON SIX TIMES-AND WE PAID
FOR IT ALL!
