    No one is asking you to. Take your money and leave if you wish to pay a lower effective tax rate on your income then does the middle class. I understand Somalia has the type of tax rates you prefer.

    Wow, what a Debbie Wasserman Schultz-esqe type of answer...Just the right amount of arrogance, and snark in order to achieve the precise amount of insult.

    Look, who gave you the ability to decide who should stay or go in this country? You own it now?

    My ability is the same as all Americans, the right to vote how we want our country run, that includes tax rates. From all the polls this year, it appears the great majority of Americans have decided that continuing the tax cuts for the rich is of no benefit to the economy or the majority of the people in this country.

    No, that is false..Or at least I don't buy it...Can you show me where 'the great majority" agrees with the premise you are advancing?

    Liberal site and leaning aside, the questions highlighted in these polls do not support your assertion...They are wide ranging enough to encompass hell, even me. But because I would even say that at some point taxation would have to rise in conjunction with entitlement reforms to get ourselves back on track, is in no way the extreme that you are advocating.

    For the life of me, I don't see how Dems think that woman will attract people to vote for Democrats. She looks like one of those women at a carnival trying to get you to pay a dollar to throw a little plastic ring over a milk bottle so you might win a 10 cent toy.

    Other than the warlords and government officials are there actually any rich people in that country? I would think being a regular person in that country would be like leaving a Porsche in a poor neighborhood with no alarm or anti-theft devices.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    that stupid somalia reference was moronic when it was first unveiled and only rots even more. THe welfare socialists are like ticks who tell the dog to leave if it doesn't like being bitten. FIrst of all that is a stupid suggestion, its people like me who built this country, not the people standing around with their hands out demanding others pay for their existence. Secondly, if we did leave people like you would starve
