    You have two different legal entities in your example. Each pays tax once on his obligations and income. There is no person paying double taxation.

    So again, are you lying about this so called definition of liberalism or can you quote the authoritative text you got it from?



    You lied about that being a definition. That is something you simply puled out of your own belief system.......... or worse.

    Hes floundering and searching for a way to worm random numbers into his next post.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    nobody claimed a person is directly paying the double tax.

    the profit is taxed twice, which is a net drain on the economy.

    And the "free market" is just another rightwing fiction. It doesn't exist, and it never has
    To quote a poster here who put it so eloquently:

    It sounds like you're talking about your ability to divine the intentions of everyone who supports higher taxes for the rich

    You can continue to call me a liar until hell freezes over but that will never change the fact that your ideology is a failure probably just like you were a failure in the private sector. you are part of the problem and not part of the solution, never will be as long as you promote higher federal taxes and delegation of personal responsibility to a federal bureaucrat. That is liberalism, spending in the NAME of compassion yet never getting compassionate results meaning solving a problem.
    I see - more attacks against me in the hopes your constant and continual errors will be overlooked in the mad desire to attack back. Sorry - not working.

    So where is the authoritative 'source' for this 'definition' you pulled from somewhere?


    Liberalism is defined by the concept of spending IN THE NAME OF COMPASSION but never getting compassionate results which mean solving an actual social problem.
    You lied. This is no DEFINITION. You made it up..... and in other breaking news - the sun sets in the west tonight.

    We must keep hammering this home with Haymarket. One of the few times I've seen him play the semantics game.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
