The left is sure we evolved from small single celled swamp sludge - they understand evolutionary forces.  But do they understand revolutionary forces? Like crippling tax policy (see Tea Party)...

Driving the Rich Into the Sea
Megaship ahoy! To escape higher taxes, the wealthy could relocate...to open waters.
By Scott Adams

"According to biologists, billions of years ago the first sea creature wiggled onto the beach. This was a pivotal moment in life's long march from amorphous sea snot into the highest form of mammalian beings—hedge-fund managers. Many people see that as an improvement, but I'm not judgmental. What we don't know is why the first sea creatures were so anxious to leave their ocean habitats. My guess is that it had something to do with taxes.

Reliable people on television have informed me that taxes are the root cause of all behavior. And that means we can predict the future by looking at tax policy. In fact, I hear tax-related predictions every time I accidentally stop thinking about myself long enough to notice that others are talking. What I haven't yet seen is anyone correctly predicting the future based on tax policy. Apparently that burden has fallen to me.
 
Somewhere in Washington our leaders are furiously planning an economic death spiral. It will start innocently with a modest tax increase on the rich, the same way you might pluck a chicken to give it fair warning before you barbecue it. The final phase will involve a tax rate on the top 1% of earners that is so high it can't be described without the Viking word for pillage. I base my prediction on the fact that the country is out of money, poor people don't have any, rich people do, and the middle class has almost figured out how voting works..."

It's a code word for, "Take your money and leave." Which is do-able for most wealthy people. Switzerland in the 'summer' and the Argentine Riviera in the 'winter' is not a bad lifestyle.

Most companies do most of their manufacturing outside of the US these days anyway. Time to send whoever is left here in the Lower 48 packing.
