That's the title of Deroy Murdock's presentation. Intrigued? You should be. Murdock will refute the Left's relentless, increasingly violent class-war rhetoric and explain how affluent Americans pay more than their fair share of taxes; create jobs, careers, and wealth for others, and contribute heroically to charity. Rather than demonize rich people, America must create more of them.

Join your friends in liberty at The Heartland Institute's library at One South Wacker Drive in Chicago for lunch and a talk with this provocative nationally syndicated columnist.
