    Neither does "Only liberals whine about how much taxes someone pays."

    I never kid myself, life isn't fair. this country was built on equal opportunity not equal outcome. Liberals creating dependence is the most selfish thing anyone can do and you seem to revel in it.
    Again....what makes you think that I would give any credibility to a statement of a man who believes that GWB was an economic genius?

    Do you honestly believe that equal opportunity exists in this country? Seriously?

    What you hear is what the left wants you to hear. You think a 3.77 trillion dollar Federal govt. is justified? you think that income earning families shouldn't be paying something to the govt. in the form of Income taxes? Do you believe that taxing the rich is ever going to fund the liberal spending appetite? It is downright disgusting what has happened to today's Democrat Party and the attempt to forcibly redistribute someone else's wealth all in the name of compassion. Not one conservative I know has ever had a problem helping people truly in need but the waste, fraud, and abuse in social spending is really disgusting and the fact that there is never any accountability for that spending.

    That's a dang lie.

    Conservatives believe people should be allowed to keep more of what they earn, and believe in limited fair tax policies. They believe in personal responsibility for ones choices in life. Funny you lefties always want to declare the right as greedy and fail to admit your collectivist policies have created this behemoth federal government that has become the most greedy of all.

    I never give much credibility to anyone who makes statements like you and never backs them up. Just more hot air from someone living in La La land. Yes, equal opportunity exists in this country especially in TX

    I love how you guys always cry "income redistribution" when tax laws are changed that require the wealthy to pay their fair share....but when a Republican changes tax laws to give tax benefits to the wealthiest...you are perfectly fine with that. Let me give you a clue Conservative....any time you change the tax code it "redistributes income".

    Again....another ME ME ME Conservative. Let ME keep all of my earnings....why do people like ME have to pay back into this country....why can't people like ME be allowed to rape the resources of this country freely without payment? Its not fair that I have to pay anything back to this great country. I should be able to get it for free...isn't that what freedom is about?

    You guys are seriously too much.

    I love it how you claim to be the one to define what fair share means. Don't worry, California is getting close to that liberal utopia you want where all the money goes to the state house and they distribute how they see fit. Works great doesn't it? Your state has massive debt, the largest number of employees making minimum wage, the entitlement class, and the home of fruits and nuts.

    LOL Texas? The land of the highest percentage of minimum wage workers in the country. The land of the highest percentage of people living in poverty? The land of the highest percentage of people living without healthcare?

    Equal opportunity to that? No thanks.

    What's disgusting is that only certain people pay to do what the People decide is government's job, and those are precisely the people vilified by you and the others who don't pay squat. It's not the folks who want to keep more of what they earn through their own works who owe anything to the country, they are already the only ones paying.

    You say it's the cost of doing business in this country, then you argue out the other side of your mouth that those who don't pay should have access to those services too. Which is it?
