Michael Moore at Madison, Wisconsin workers’ rights rally March 5, 2011.

Moore says the few that have the most money don’t want to pay their fair share of the taxes.

“They would rather invest in the gambling casino known as wall street. Betting for or against the stock market or against your home mortgage and the entire population suffers because that wealth has been removed from circulation. What’s so cynical about this is the very people who don’t pay their taxes crashed our economic system. They created the unemployment which has caused less tax revenue. And states like Wisconsin have ended up with a so-called budget crisis .

“But Wisconsin is not broke. It’s one of the three biggest lies of the last decade. What are the three biggest lies? Let’s repeat them.

“Number one, Wisconsin is broke. Number two, there’s weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. And number three, the Packers need Farve in order to win the Super Bowl.

“The nation is not broke my friends. There’s lots of money to go around. Lots! Lots! It’s just that those in charge have diverted that wealth into a deep well that sits on their well-guarded estates. They know. They know that they have committed crimes to make this happen. And they know, And they know that someday you may want to see some of that money that used to be yours. So they have bought and paid for hundreds of politicians across the country to do their bidding for them.”
