GOP candidates claim they are all po' people

Yep, Mittens, the Newtster, and the rest of this lot are just like you and me. 

Of course, they really aren't Most of them with the exception of Ron Paul and John Huntsman, sold out as corporatist shills and whores years ago. 

The job of these GOP politicians is do the bidding of the one per cent, maintain the status quo and to dismantle depression and post-depression reforms whenever possible. That's what the deregulation emphasis of the GOP is about. 

Of course, they want to ingratiate themselves to their bosses so they have cut the taxes of the affluent as well. 

Any time that a progressive suggests that the wealthy are disproportionately benefiting from the Bush tax policies, Republicans shout, "class warfare!"

Karl Rove was one of the first to use the "class warfare" term during the first GW Bush presidential campaign.

Anything that threatens the GOP's crony capitalism is socialism. Crony capitalism is a kind synonym for fascism.

In the book A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous Fourteenth Century, Barbara Tuchman writes about a peasant revolt in 1358 that began in the village of St. Leu and spread throughout the Oise Valley.

At one estate, the serfs sacked the manor house, killed the knight, and roasted him on a spit in front of his wife and kids. After ten or twelve peasants violated the lady of the house, they forced her to eat the roasted flesh of her dead husband before they killed her.

That is class warfare.

Arguing over the marginal income tax tax rate for the top one percent is not.
