I'm a gazillionaire and I support Barack

Walking around Charleston I noticed a few things. It's actually a Southern city. People actually speak with a southern accent. Which is a nice change of pace from Atlanta where nobody does. It is also a city with old money. And lots of it, at least in the downtown area with the 300 year old mansions, some of which have been in the same family for generations. And the old moneyed crowd doesn't seem to mind showing that money off. I've seen more S-Class Mercedes in the last 3 days than I have in the last 3 years.

What I've also noticed, not surprisingly are a lot of Obama bumper stickers on those $100K cares and in the windows of the $10M houses. Like their Mass/NY counterparts, these old moneyed folks love limousine liberal politics. It's easy to be for Obama when you have more money than you know what to do with. It's easy to be for higher taxes and helping the 'poor' when you have more money than you know what to do with.

When the taxes of one of these Obama supporters doubles, his life doesn't change. He has enough money and his kids will have enough and his grandkids will have enough to never worry about tax rates. When someone like me has his taxes double, it hurts and hurts a lot.

So to all of you holier than thou, white, guilty, limousine liberals, I saw screw you. You are the biggest hypocrites out there. You drive the $100K car, you live in the $10M house and yet you chastise ME for not helping the poor? How about you drive a $10K car, live in a $200K house and give the rest away to help your beloved poor. Nah.That would actually mean you make a sacrifice which would result in your silver spoon being surgically removed from your mouth. Much easier though to slap a Barrack bumper sticker on the old Benz-o and feel good about "doing something to help".

You people truly do disgust me.

The offspring of these bumper sticker hypocrites will be the ones moving to greener pastures overseas (and taking their American made inheritance with them) in the next 20-30 years due to: socialized healthcare sending taxes through the roof, ss time bomb exploding, illegals rioting in the streets after Americas economic collapse.

A day will come when Americans live the American Dream in another country.

anon 9:09,

Right you are. Luckily I have citizenship in 2 other countries and have an escape valve as well....sans inheritance unfortunately.

W. Europe is not much of an alternative as 20-30 years from now it will be Eurabia. Over 50% of school aged kids in Rotterdam are Muslims. Future ain't looking so bright over there either.

E. Europe still holds out some hope for me.
