    Let's here it Obama supporters how does taxing the rich benefit the U.S. economy and how much money is going to be generated to fund the liberal spending appetite?

    Class warfare is never going to solve the problems we face in this country and what ever happened to incentive to create more upper class individuals? Growing up I always strove to generate enough money to pay for a family that I hoped to have and fund charities that I want to support. My education process taught me the value of hard work and the desire to succeed. What happened to that philosophy in today's world? Why is it the Federal Government's role to tell the private sector where to spend its own money and on what?
    Most of this money is made off overseas and is untaxed in the US profits so just think of it as a windfall tax. Close the offshoring of IP then maybe I will be willing to give your vodoo doll a poke.

    Maybe that is why anecdotal is not the proper way to look at things?

    The second sentence is true. I suppose the first one is technically true but hardly anything in the US is tyranny.

    Not if what applies to my example applies to everyone else also.

    This wont be shocking. This will be Obama putting race, class warfare, and every divisive and destructive category he can find into play. More taxes, more giveaway programs, amnesty, womens rights...all things we have talked about that will be the cornerstone of candidate Clintons presidential run in 2016. Its the kid in high school running for class president that promises no more homework, student rights over faculty, better student lunches, shorter school years and shorter school days, and soda in the water fountains.

    Have no noticed that liberals never respond to the question as to how rich people have prevented them from becoming one of those that they want to punish? Have you noticed that liberals always seem to promote the false accusation that rich people take opportunity away from the poor ignoring that the economic pie continues to get bigger thus having room for others? Have you noticed that liberals ignore that it isn't the Federal Government's role to handle state and local social problems?
    It does not matter if the pie gets bigger when the wealthy are getting a larger and larger piece of it. Their % of the economy keeps growing. it is unsustainable.
