A few comments about American leftists and liberals condemnation. Whenever did we ever remain “stuck together”? I remember anti-war (the Vietnam one) being beaten up by “my country, right or wrong” thugs. We are separate peoples, those who have humanity in mind, not just our country.
The writer does not like “redisitributive” taxes. If so, then let the rich give back the 52% of the Bush tax cuts, they were an unneeded gift of the 1.7 trillion dollar tax cuts. The left does not hate guns and war, does the writer remember Harry Truman? He was credited with ending the war in the Pacific and he did it with a big gun.
