    That's okay. I know that looking up facts can be difficult for some people. I've done this one before so I will do it.

Everyone who acts to fulfill their self interest is doing so for a self-interested motivation, and acts to fulfill that as best they can. It's the most predictable human behavior, and it's why we have the law of supply and demand.

    One might have a high net worth or a low net worth. One might have noble motives, such as a charity, or one might have base and avaricious motives, such as living in opulence. But all are essentially "greedy."
    Wrong. Self interest is not the same as greed. Some people believe that risking their lives to protect the nation is in their self interest. Suffering has a redemptive potential. Not everyone sees the world through the selfish filter of rightwing ideology

    Stop asking others to do your homework for you.

    Well, we know that Democrats have lied and that is easily proven. We know you do not object to it and that's all we need to know.

    Greed is what makes makes the world go round. What you view it as a selfish filter of rightwing ideology, is actually taking the scientific approach to economics (to the extent such a thing is possible).

    Have you ever seen the movie Wall Street? Human greed is, at least, reliable.

    By your reasoning if:

    1. If majority votes for a specific tax rate
    2. If you are a U.S. citizen
    Then, what you pay is termed "your fair share" by the american people.
    I fixed that for you

    I thought you might be smart enough to look things up and perhaps learn something, but that's okay. I'll do it for you.
