When crap like this is touted as what we ‘Liberals’ need to start doing, it’s why we Liberals will fail and might as well hand over the Country to Corporations and the wealthy.
From this op-ed by a Noah Smith (No relation) :
“I want to move back toward a society where the hard work of an unskilled laborer is considered worthwhile in social interactions, regardless of how many dollars it brings home”.
“It’s tempting to blame conservatives, libertarians, and the business community for the erosion of equality of respect”.
“But I think American liberals have also made the mistake of focusing too much on income and wealth as the measures of success”.

Yeah….it’s the Democrats fault. Don’t blame the Conservatives or Libertarians.
One last note your respect.
Fight the war that will save America.
Income equality and opportunity!
‘The Catholic conservative who insists he cares about the poor says Pope Francis doesn’t understand capitalism’.
“What I love about the pope is he is triggering the exact kind of dialogue we ought to be having,” Ryan told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “People need to get involved in their communities to make a difference, to fix problems soul to soul.”
Ah Yes. The Republican ‘real’ capitalism.
“The guy is from Argentina, they haven’t had real capitalism in Argentina,” Ryan said (referring to the pope as “the guy” is a nice folksy touch.) “They have crony capitalism in Argentina. They don’t have a true free enterprise system.”

‘How Inequality Is Holding Back Our Economy’
” Trickle-down economics is severely flawed; for decades, its associated economic policies have generated high levels of inequality, justifying that inequality with faulty logic, and most likely, dampened levels of economic growth. In contrast, middle-out policies, which combat inequality and strengthen the middle class through a progressive economic agenda, have the promise to bring about a new era of shared prosperity in our nation”.

“One of the reasons America has become a third-world nation is three decades of Republican trickle-down economics, the monopolization, privatization and deregulation of industry, and decimation of labor protection has sent 50 million Americans into wretched poverty while all the wealth has risen to the top 1% of income earners instead of investing in America”.
