    In their hearts and bank accounts - many probably do not. But it will come just the same.

    Actually it seems to be you incessantly whining about paying more taxes than the middle class and poor.

    this thread was started to whine about those with investment income not being raped as much on that income as they are on earned income. You are the ones whining. and your whining is dishonest for several reasons

    it is not honest to claim that the rich aren't paying their fair share

    its also not honest to demand others pay more when you pay less

    So I guess you must be stealing national security, education, highways, bridges, dams, air traffic control, emergency services, gps signals, a court system, border security, and all the rest? And then the government steals from you to pay for it? Maybe it's just a fine for your theft?

    The average American pays 27%. Romney pays 15%. Who isn't being honest here, us or you?

    They not only own your wealth. They actually own you.

    Regardless of who started the thread, you do a hell of a lot of whining about paying more taxes than you think you should.

    As to what's fair, that's a bit like arguing over religion. Kind of pointless.

    The voters will decide.

    I just told you. It's not stealing. It's taxation. Stealing is illegal. Taxation is legal. There's a big difference.
