    And yes, it would only happen if "people get stupid" and say, voted to keep the government from restricting corporate power. That's kinda what your party is trying to do. And if the 1% isn't going to pay for it, who is? the rest of us 99% can barely afford our houses. And cleaning up a mess you didn't make? kinda like the Iraq war?
    Also, I didn't say we'd be working for 2 cents an hour. I used that as an example. You ever heard the phrase "Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" before? Also, taking inflation into account, we'd get $0.46 an hour. I'd like to see you try to live off of a wage like that.
    Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be off to bed now.

    Oh clever, your argument sucks.

    That's kinda what your party is trying to do.
    Yeah, because we believe in no restrictions at all. Hey look at us we let our corporations run all over people!! No, we don't. Nice try.

    And if the 1% isn't going to pay for it, who is? the rest of us 99% can barely afford our houses. And cleaning up a mess you didn't make? kinda like the Iraq war?
    So your saying the 1% has to pay every time our Government ****s up? Yeah I definitively want to go get rich now.
    I made the Iraq war? Wtf. My party didn't either.
    The rest of us 99% can barely afford our houses? Stop using that 99% bull**** go get the real numbers.
    And no I have never heard the phrase "Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" NEVER! Wtf? lol of course I have. You do know that's why I read history books right? But obviously you know me so well. And know everything about me.
    I wouldn't live off a wage like that... If I do the cost of living better go down. I believe in taking down a tyrant government. But these 99 percenters are blaming the wrong people.
    So let me see you do it.

    Allow me to do the math for you.
    6:30 AM - 9:00 PM, that's 14 and a half hours a day, six days a week. That's 87 hours of work in one week, for a dollar and a half a week. that averages out to less than two cents an hour.
    THIS, my friend, is how the lives of people like you and me will be if the corporations are no longer supervised by the government.
    Where did I ever state that I was against rules and regulations?

    Funny you should say that. Those are the real numbers, give or take like half a percent.
    Once again, I failed at being clear. My bad. My point is that we send people into wars whether they like it or not. And people have to pay taxes whether they like it or not.
    Also, you have yet to answer this:
    If the top 1% isn't gonna do their share of the taxes, who is?

    If no one can afford the products being made, or the services being offered, those people don't make any money. Products and services will be affordable, in the event that wages go to .42 cents an hour, because it will cost a LOT less to make, but also because if not, people won't be able to afford them, and they won't sell, and they won't make money.

    Come hell or high water...this country has over 300 million people living in it. On ONE currency, in ONE unified economy. Sure, prices change from state to state, as do wage averages, but it's not dramatic, like it would be from one country to another. That's our world wide economic advantage. Any producer of any good or service is NOT going to take that lightly.
