How to Love Your Country, by MoveOn.Org

Check out this latest publication from MoveOn.org, titled "50 Ways to Love Your Country". I'm not really inclined to support MoveOn.org, so I won't be purchasing this book. Besides, we could all probably guess 5 or 10 of MoveOn's top 50, couldn't we? Here's my take on what made MoveOn's list of how to "love your country":

  • Tax the wealthy out of existence.
  • Provide government funded abortions for everyone, and ensure parents of minors are never informed of their children's efforts to seek abortion.
  • Shut down America's military industrial machine and rely on the U.N. to protect our borders.
  • Cap profits on all US corporations. Any profits in excess of the cap to be redirected towards international debt relief.
  • Mandate racial and gender based hiring quotas for all businesses.
  • Melt down all US coin currency, and re-issue coins without "In God we Trust".
  • Remove tax exempt status from Christian organizations. Use new revenue to compensate prisoners "tortured" at Gitmo.
  • Roll out a one time tax on white men of 25% of net worth. Proceeds to be used for reparations, minority scholarships, and federal meals on wheels programs for immigrants crossing our boarders illegally.

These are only 8 agenda items I suspect are in this great new publication from MoveOn.org. I can only imagine the other 42 items on their list.
