"And then I didn't speak up when they came for the rich" Or Something Like That . . .

A paraphrase of a quote from the past: "We voted for Mitterrand because he said he would tax the rich, then he told us we were the rich."

From Sovereign Man: "France is about to experience a mass exodus of wealthy elite" which references a NY Times article: "Indigestion for ‘les Riches’ in a Plan for Higher Taxes"

Perhaps a cautionary tale for the 99% in the USA.
