Shouldn't someone explain to Sarah Palin that merely supporting a progressive income tax system, as Barack Obama apparently does, does not make a person a socialist? Virtually every Western nation, including the US, employs progressive income tax systems and have done so since the early 1900s.
And in any progressive income tax system, the wealthy pay more than the middle class which pays more than the poor.
In other words, such a tax system shares the wealth.
Imagine the Republican Party presenting this woman to the American people and the world as a potential future president. Her naiveté about international issues is appalling. Her mindless willingness to parrot Republican mumbo jumbo is disappointing.
