“I’d Love to Change the World”

You know that song by Ten Years After, right?

Well, it has a verse that goes like this:

Tax the rich. Feed the poor. Till there are no rich no more

I guess the Democrat presidential candidates were listening to that song quite a bit in advance of their debate on Thursday.

Because if the wire reports of that debate are accurate — I have better things to do than to waste my time watching them, so I’m taking those reports at face value — it looks as though the Democrat mantra on domestic policies can be summarized as follows:

Tax the ‘rich’. Feed the ‘poor’. Turn the federal government into a nanny state whore
