Great column by Victor Davis Hanson.
A great part of the column was VDH talking about the media’s refusal to cover Obama’s socialist policies, i.e. “spread the wealth”.
A practical effect of socialism is often defined as curbing productive incentives by ensuring the poorer need not endanger their exemptions and credits by seeking greater income; and discouraging the wealthy from seeking greater income, given that nearly two-thirds of additional wealth would be lost to taxes. Surely that discussion might have been of interest to the American people.
