Psst! You. Yes, you. They hate you.

Let's roll the tape from behind the curtain once again:

These are people who pay no income tax. 47% of Americans pay no income taxes. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect. And he'll be out there talking about "tax cuts for the rich". That's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people.
I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for for their lives.
That we've allowed a country where two people, working full time at the kind of jobs that you can get without a fancy degree, $10-15/hour, raising 2 kids will be barely getting by at about $50,000 year is bad enough. Now, it's time to hate on them because they don't happen to pay federal income tax. It's all about hate. Doesn't stop at half the country. You know if you're one of the obvious candidates : Black, Latino, Asian, Atheist, or (worst of all: Shudder) Female.

So, who else should they hate?

How about a guy from a family semi-rich on government contracts. He lazes through a second rate school, uses family connections to get a series of propaganda jobs as a hanger on in DC, marries a rich tax lawyer, then goes on the public payroll for the rest of his life lying all the way.

Sure, hate on Paul Ryan.
So, does this mean they hate themselves?

Religious hypocrites, closeted gays, fetishists? When you're running a conspiracy, it works better if everybody has a shame. Keeps them in line.

And what do you get when you work hard, follow the rules and polish up the handle so carefully?

This is not something that working people have forgotten, no matter how many times they've been told to. Time to change the rules. How do you fight hate?

If that doesn't work, knee to the nuts.
