    a fact which becomes brutally obvious when adding up all the percentages at the bottom and seeing that it doesn't total to 100% ?!
    You're right...now get back to me on the data in post #384...from an 'official' source...

    ps: many 'Tea Party' groups are 501(c)...does that make them 'authoritative'?
    Probably not, considering that unlike the ITEP, their data isn't based on and doesn't cite actual tax tables from the various and the IRS.

    To make an even more pathetic point. There is a catalog for domestic assistance...to facilitate 'money taken by the federal govt. based on income that IS (sic)given back to the taxpayer'...:

    But I DID use the IRS tables in #384...why are you dodging that data...from THE 'OFFICIAL' SOURCE?

    Why? Do you feel it the mature thing to do to ridicule someone else? Is that the 'Libertarian' thing to do?

    I think everyone can see you are getting destroyed on the math.

    Are these not 'given back to the taxpayer'...based on income?
    The US gov't always claims that all taxpayer monies are redistributed in a way that benefits the taxpayer, but any real Libertarian worth her salt knows that's usually a crock of ****.

    If you were a real Libertarian, instead of some tp limbaugh hack, you'd know that.

    AH, and this was predicted MANY years ago...

    Not from this libertarian-the guy who actually was an official part of the Clark Campaign in 1980 and authorized to speak on behalf of the campaign in New Haven and Greater Hartford. I haven't seen a thing from Solletica that suggests any libertarian views. claiming the rich don't pay enough sounds socialist to me or worse yet, populist. Populism-which tends to be a benighted reactionary hatred of the educated and the successful often masquerades as libertarian. It as actually one of the conflicts in both the GOP and the DNC. Populists hate the well educated elites who run the DNC-people like Kerry and the Kennedys and the Rockefellers . The same reactionary populists in the GOP were the people who stayed home because Romney is a Mormon and went to Harvard and is very wealthy. They also whined about GHWB being in the "trilateral commission". They are the heirs to the nativist "know nothings" who constantly whined about "Papist influences" and the "Jew Rothchild" running our banks.
