The Class Warfare We Need: Conover

I found this essay by Steve Conover via Charlie’s Blog today, and it is absolutely brilliant! Finally somebody actually speaks the truth about the ludicrous and damaging class warfare being pushed by the Democrats, media and OWS morons. The proper target is all wrong:

The point is this: If we’re going to have a war, let’s do it right. The battle lines should be drawn orthogonally to the oversimplified “rich versus the rest.” A virtuous war would be one that rewards society’s honest earners and productive contributors, while punishing society’s predators, pirates, and parasites—all without regard to anyone’s income level. It is a target-rich environment that includes anyone (of any income level) who is cheating to win, any business or union (of any size) with its snout in the public trough, any politician filling that trough and feeding those snouts for reciprocal gain, and any group using the political system (at any level) to maintain its monopoly, or its winning “edge” against less-well-connected competitors.

Amen, brother.

Go read the entire essay on the American Enterprise Institute website.
