    It matters not what you reject based on your embracing of the randroid belief system.

    The fact remains that I provided you with at least eight solid reasons why economists favor a graduated tax system which discriminates based on amount of available income to be taxed and you have provided nothing in defense of the discriminatory capital gains rates except your own personal desire to cut your own personal taxes for your own persona gain to enlarge your own personal bank account and nation policy be damned in favor of your own personal goals and benefits.

    Then you badly need to go back and read your own posts where you vilify others and call them names because they are not like you.

    If votes were proportionate to taxes paid the progressive income tax would die faster than a butterfly in an icebox

    You pretend that your soak the rich agenda is for the public good while claiming my desired tax policy only benefits me

    that is specious garbage. Your tax system is why the middle class continues to demand more and more government and why the pimps in Washington cater to them

    I don't call posters names, I note the class of wealth stealers are just that. and you and your fellow travelers are whining that those of us who pay far more tax dollars than we use in government are either selfish or greedy when we CORRECTLY note we pay far too much in federal income taxes

    Re: Romney's tax rate is only half as high as the middle class pays

    If Romney paid 15% that's more than he should have. I owned a small business for years and lost almost 50% of my profits to taxes. It's sickening and stupid that our moronic government spends so much. Every time there has been tax cuts the economy has shown growth, which benefited everybody. Nobody benefits from excessive gov programs, not even the government. I say make government work smarter not harder.

    That is spamming to post the same crap over and over. Its crap because it is using non progressive taxes as part of what the "poor" pay and comparing it to a single tax paid by investors

    You and the other warriors of the right need to run on that program. Do you even know what "specious garbage" means. I have repeatedly reproduced your own posts in which you state your so called PRINCIPLE of taxation only to betray it a short time later, do a complete reversal and embrace another so called PRINCIPLE that does the opposite. And then you switch to a third. And what do any of them have in common each and every time you flush your precious PRINCIPLE down the toilet? You get a personal tax cut.

    I will be happy to produce those again for you. They are your words and your positions - not mine or anyone elses. Your so called precious PRINCIPLES which you trash and smash, flush and crush happily as long as the new flavor of the week gives you a personal tax cut.

    So please Turtle, lets not gild the lily here.

    Calling people IDIOTS and NEER DO WELLS is name calling.
