Is State Rep. Frank Atkisson a Socialist?

No. I’m quite sure he’s not and I’m not trying to be McCarthy-esque…

Just consider these two quotes:

“I have real disdain for the way we tax people right now. People should be taxed on their ability to pay.”
— Frank Atkisson, Quoted in the St. Petersburg Times (Aug 1 2007)

“In a higher phase of communist society … only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be fully left behind and society inscribe on its banners: from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”
— Karl Marx, Critique of the Gotha Programme (1875).

One Response to Is State Rep. Frank Atkisson a Socialist?

  1. Weird, considering he is proposing shifting the tax burden from the upper and middle class onto those of lower incomes.
