The Declaration Of Independence, According To Mark Dayton

It goes a little something like this:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to coerce the livelihoods from another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the superior and unequal station to which the Theories of Keynes and Bloomsbury entitle them, a decent respect to the needs of government requires that they should declare other peoples’ property to be public property first, and their own last.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equally vital belongings of Government, that they are endowed by their Government with certain unalienable Duties, that among these are to support the government that makes us all so very equal.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted upon Men, deriving their just powers from, paradoxically, their power.

Governor Dayton has an odd idea of what unites us as a people, and of what this nation is supposed to be all about.

It starts as the same old story…:

Dayton told a group at the University of Minnesota today that his administration is coming up with a plan to overhaul the entire tax code to make the tax system fairer to lower and middle income people. He didn’t offer specifics but said his plan would continue to include an income tax hike on the state’s top 2 percent of earners.

…but quickly devolves into a big toke off the Obama/Soros/Messinger kool-aid-filled water pipe:

Dayton also criticized Republicans in the Legislature and in Congress for being reluctant to raise taxes to pay for new programs.

“This unwillingness to pay taxes and seeing it as a threat to our freedom and our liberty and our way of life, to me, is going to be the death of this country if it’s not corrected,” Dayton said.

You heard him right.

The desire to keep what one earns rather than seeing it squandered, the spirit of dissent against the idea that the fruit of your labor belongs to government first and you, eventually, maybe?   That’s the threat to the nation!

All you peasants have got to quit being so uppity!

Your nobles have spoken!

  1. Dayton’s not a tax increaser, he’s a FREEDOM FIGHTER! And don’t the wingnuts and tea baggers claim to love FREEDOM? Why do you hate freedom, Berg?
    PS: Looking forward to the first news reporter, er, well, actually, based on their performance at the Romney presser yesterday I have a new title for them – Narrative Coordinators, questioning Governor JimBeam on why he is reluctant to bring his inherited wealth back from the pasture land of South Dakota where its untaxed status is “a threat to our freedom and our liberty and our way of life”.

  2. Seflores, we can only hope that we see some counter ads to the blatant b.s. coming from Alita’s bunch of hypocrites! If I had the money to fund them, the first thing that I would hit would be her tie into Mad Mark and the Dayton family squirreling away their money in the tax haven of SD. I just love their little “source” messages, the Red Star being the most prominent. Of course, just like the State Farm commercial says, nothing can be put on the internet that isn’t true and of course, the print media can’t print anything that isn’t true.

  3. When Bernanke retires in humiliation, rumor has it Dayton and Messinger will become the new Fed Chairs. They will job share the position so that they can attend to their active social calendars while still protecting the vital interests of the low and middle income union workers, er, workers.

  4. The Dayton tax hikes; because what is more essential to our way of life than to devote an ever-increasing portion of the national income to the business of government? Who cares that the only time federal spending (in terms of GDP) was ever higher than it was today was during World War Two?

  5. “make the tax system fairer to lower and middle income people”

    Robbing Peter to pay Paul. Paul’s happy with that, he feels he’s entitled to what’s Peter’s. After all he’s been told that Peter didn’t build that.

  6. Big;

    “They will job share the position so that they can attend to their active social calendars while still protecting the vital interests of the low and middle income union workers, er, workers.”

    If they don’t quit first!
