I'm ok with this

We're going to push hard to make sure someone making over a million dollars a year aren't getting tax breaks and tax subsidies they don't need, not out of envy, but out of a sense of fairness and a sense of mutual responsibility and a sense of commitment for the country's future, and that's what we're fighting for. The American people understand that. 

This is not just a liber... excuse me, progressive, thing.  It is an American thing.  Bush Jr. worked hard to make the U.S. as much like Edwardian England or Argentina as possible.  Krueger has shown how incredibly successful this project was.

It may be too late to take it back.  But the American Dream is a legitimate concept, worth fighting to reclaim.  I've recommended this book before, but I'd like to see it taught in high schools, and given to everyone who becomes a naturalized citizen.

Put me down for an America that's a nation - not a plantation.
