That promise is resounding worldwide as socialist/communist politicians promise to ease the long overdue payments for profligate government spending in countries facing financial ruin.

The rich are already paying more than the lion’s share, and could not supply the spending spigots if their earnings were confiscated in toto. But none of this matters while the other half pays nothing into those tills, and still demands more.

The same thing is happening in Greece, and soon in Spain, Italy, Portugal, …, and, of course, the United States which is already in the lead bringing such policies to the fore with messianic force. In California, we have been ahead of that curve for years, and show no inclination to let slip our position of leadership.
How have you prepared for this future?
