The March of Socialism
The wealthiest counties in the nation ring Washington D.C.
- The occupation of the residents of the D.C. area is to suck down the re-distributed wealth produced by the rest of the nation.
- Marxist Democrats are eager to steal anything not nailed down in order to buy voters every two years.
- Socialist-lite Republicans have not cut one cent from the Federal budget since the 1920s. They are happy to be the "Good Government" managers of the Socialist welfare state.
Marxism is dead in Moscow and Beijing. They have adopted forms of Capitalism.
But, Marxism and the re-distribution of wealth is alive and well in Washington D.C.
Five of the top 10 wealthiest counties in the United States are in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area--within commuting distance for the thousands of federal government workers, lobbyists, lawyers, defense contractors, think-tank "experts" and political operatives who work in and around the nation’s capital.
The five counties have median household incomes that are roughly double the national median of $50,502.
Loudoun County, Va., which lies to the north and west of the District of Columbia, topped the list in 2011, with a median family income of $119,525, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE), released Wednesday reports CNS News.
