AUSTIN, TEXAS- Getting into Austin in his Prius with California plates and a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker, 24 year old Ashton Thompson howls in disgust at the mention of Capitalism.
“Socialism is so good man. Capitalism is all about exploitation.” He remarks, as he fills his gas tank with almost tax free gas under $1.60 a gallon, a far cry from the $3.24 he was paying back home.
Ashton takes a full time job in Austin and enjoys the state tax income free pay checks he now receives, while supporting Bernie online and Sanders’ tax the wealthy plans.
“Nordic Countries like Norway tax their wealthy a lot, and it works.” He writes, ignoring that he just left the only American State that taxes itself wealthy nearly as much as Norway.
