    people who spew the nonsense that Catawba and the other haters of the wealthy do will hopefully unite the wealty (who right now are split: libertines, Christian haters, and those wealthy because of the government tend to support the dems, bible thumpers, many entrepreneurs and those tired of being overtaxed and regulated support the GOP) which will spell the end of the dem party as we know it. without their millionaire backing the dems will get crushed in elections. the sooner the better. and I see a day when people who whine about the rich will feel the pain when their rich employers fire them for their rants.

    Baloney. You righties do not have the guts or honesty to run on the Turtle program of allocating votes according to taxes paid.

    that is exactly what teamosil and Catawba have done-comparing TOTAL STATE and FEDERAL TAXES Of one type of taxpayer with only one of MANY taxes an investor pays and then whining that the total rate of all taxes for one might be higher than the tax rate oF ONE type of tax for the investor
    Bringing race into this does not advance the discussion.

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.
    Your post is so full of **** that I needed two rolls of Charmin to get though it.

    What a turd you posted.

    Of course not, there are too many parasites and slackers addicted to government. popularity is often the death of society. and right now, the dems are doing everything possible to make as many people dependent on the government as possible

    you want all income treated the same for reasons based on "fairness" (rational economic arguments have yet to be proffered for jacking up taxes on investment income) yet you despise fairness in the form of flat rates or everyone paying the same percentage of their next dollar to the government
    1- I have consistently said that ALL AMERICANS should have their income tax rate raised by five points. And that includes myself.

    2- That is not my position - but feel free to quote me if you pretend that it is. What you are doing is dragging another strawman from your barn.

    3 - There is nothing fair about a flat rate and you never have made a case that it is.
