It burns me to no end when I hear conservative Republican types complain that this current government is re distributing wealth and how it is not and "American ideology" ("Angry Americans want responsible government," Readers respond, Oct. 7).
I have news for him and all the other head-in-the-sand conservatives out there. Since 1980, conservatives and Republicans have done nothing but redistribute wealth in this country! They have raided, robbed, ransacked and ruined the middle class, stolen its wealth as well as wealth from the working class and given it to the richest Americans under the ridiculous ruse called "Trickle Down Economics."
Ronald Wilson Reagan, Captain America, the demigod of all that is conservative, is the father of this fiasco as well as setting the bench mark for doubling the nation debt and deficit spending. Give me a break, we are not all idiots out here. Some of us actually care enough to read and find out for ourselves instead of staring at Fox News and letting them tell us what to think.
That trickle down effect wasn't even a drip for 90 percent of us, but if you were already rich, it was a deluge.
