I know you guys have a really weird history with these words, but please sort out your definition of 'liberal'/'liberalism', what you're talking about are communists.I'd much prefer the liberal leftists in the USA leave us for their dream of socialism and big government in another country. It can easily be found in Venezuela - where very, very few are rich and the rest live on the remaining government "free" scraps. This is the "income equality" achieved to it's fullest.
And tell me, what exactly is wrong with someone smarter and more driven than you making more money than you? That is the beauty of capitalism - the harder and smarter you work, the more you're rewarded. Nonetheless, liberalism makes those people out to be evil. Rather than lift themselves up (liberals), they choose to drag everyone down with them (income equality), as if they deserve a piece of someone else's pie just because they're alive. ABSOLUTE SLOTH!
And nowhere in this thread is there anything about the merits of people making money, you're getting angry about something way off-topic. This thread is about a quite simple chain of events, and people's views of those events:
- companies pre-2015 started using tactics that extorted money out of other companies and consumers
- FCC implemented regulations to stop those tactics in 2015
- Ajit Pai and many Republicans (and I'm sure some Dems) got paid lots of money by the agitating companies
- Ajit Pai & co repeal regulations, allowing extorting tactics to be used once more.
This is nothing to do with making people out to be evil, it's not to do with communism, it's nothing to do with income inequality. It's about that simple chain of events, and quite a lot of people thinking that that's not right.
