    No, it is apparently your opinion that they should be.

    society is full of those who eagerly agree to make others pay for what they want or what they think they need.

    You did not specifically state that but you did by inference. When the discussion was pointed to the majority being in favor of taxing the rich (minority), you stated that ‘Democracy is a bitch’ (i.e. ‘get over it), inferring that this was acceptable. A reference was made to a T. Jefferson quote that opined that such was oppression hence the link.

    How else should we have taken your position? Are not the desires of the majority (taxing the rich) oppressing the desires minority (not paying more taxes)? So as to not misquote you, what specifically is your exact position?

    Please refer to the original post. It was not MY opinion but Thomas Jefferson's.
