    Just think at 15% it would be hard to go to war, eh? but yes you are right, with the current spending it's not realistic, I think the government should reign in all this spending, and implement a 15-17% tax rate. The savings of disbanding most of the IRS alone may be worth it.

    So says the one that wouldn't be affected by a tax increase, yet wants the lower and middle to pay even more taxes.

    Pardon me if I throw your term in the trash where your comments go.

    No, you are afforded more opportunities because of your status. That's fact.


    Your god is money.

    True, but I earned them, you didn't.

    Your god is money.

    Not at all, my god is success.... if I had to start over again, I could, because I worship at the alter of success, not at the alter of class envy....

    Just a page back or two you were saying it would be unfair for everyone to pay 15% because you would pay more.

    Also the 25-58, or the 15 or any of those numbers are total horse ****. Very few people actually pay what they should pay in taxes. There are millions of ways around them. Dont keep lying to yourself.

    I really think you are confused...... I never said this, I want this, I am happy to pay 15% on my rich mans salary and happy for TNE to pay 15% on his poor mans salary, yes I would pay more, but that's fair. 15% across the board...

    Also the 25-58, or the 15 or any of those numbers are total horse ****. Very few people actually pay what they should pay in taxes. There are millions of ways around them. Dont keep lying to yourself.

    As I said, get rid of all deductions ALL loopholes and charge 15%.... TNE was claiming I wanted folks to pay more, I countered proving I want them to pay less. He failed.
