From some dude named Daewoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
ROTFLMFAOIronically enough, "the rich" seem to agree. Soros, Gates, Buffet, and dozens of others have literally directly lobbied congress to raise their taxes. Polls done among the wealthy have shown OVERWHELMING support for increased taxation for the upper class....over 89% of those in the top 10% of earners agree.
Polls done among the wealthy... wanting to pay more taxes... Yes... and i see Daewoooooooooooooooooooooooo has difficulty finding a link for all these polls. Was it a 3-man poll with the leftists noted?
If these wise guys want to pay more, why not just the give the money to the government... like a charity? Nothing is stopping them... the hypocrites.
Why did Buffett not give his fortune to The US Government instead of The Gates Foundation.
Soros, Gates and Buffett (Daewooooo... Buffett... (with two tees.)
Nice collection of leftists, but the interesting thing is their behavior in the market; all are vultures and looking for tax breaks for their companies. LOL.

Top 1% pay 39%
86% of ll Fed Income taxes paid by top 25%
Top 50% pay 97% of taxes.
Source: CBOIt's called education; and in what should be a Capitalist society it is criminal it's not taught to students from about the 3rd grade onwards.Wealthy people generally know a lot about money and how the system works and they have figured out what the ###### in the middle class apparently have not.
Instead we get nothing or the opposite.
What system? The tons of Eurosocialism gumming up our government?If you want to keep the system rolling along, somebody has to pay for it.
No, let's kill it off before keeping it rolling along.
No definition of poor? What is "poor"?Trying to tax the poor is stupid, and frankly the middle class does not have enough money to worry about it.
Do you mean those with a living standard lower then the BEST EU countries?
What is stupid is putting all you eggs in one basket, as we have and others have done; not spreading the responsibility around if you're going to play this ridiculous game of tax and redistribute.
What happens when the Golden Geese stop laying the Golden Eggs, and/or pack up and fly away?
Then you've got massive problems.
MASSIVE because the gummed up system is like a baby bird with it's yap open... always seeking food... and when there isn't enough... to pay for the entitlements and debt... then what? Disaster.
It's why some EU countries need immigrants badly, and what they're getting isn't quality, high grade ore that will dump huge chunks of cash in the government coffers.
The people they want and need aren't stupid... society is mobile, and they exploit this mobility for their own interests. Instead of staying, they're leaving.
We are after all... individuals.
Well you're full of secrets, but no links. Secret links?I'll tell you another secret, the wealthy would rather see the middle class hold on to their money so they can buy a new plasma screen TV, which some wealthy guy (or a company owned or controlled by them) will import and mark up 400%.
Psssssssssssssst. Here's another secret.
You don't know the wealthy.
The wealthy want to hold onto their money too.
I've spent enough time around those with significant wealth from millions to tens of and hundreds of millions; I don't know any that believe they are undertaxed, or would want to pay more. Quite the opposite, and it's understandable... it's human nature.
No, of course not.Of course the middle class guy will not have enough money to actually pay for such a thing, but no worries, some other wealthy guy will be happy to finance it for him at 17%.
The middle class guy is too dumb to save his money or exhibit self control.
He's Bill Clinton but instead of having a penis problem way beyond his control, "The middle class guy" has a financial problem... he just can't help but insert his credit card into every slot he can find... pay ridiculous rates, and sign punitive contracts.
Correction to the quote above: The middle class liberal guy just might be too dumb to save.
In the immortal words of Bill Gates...In the immortal words of Bill Gates...."As long as I have a billion dollars in my checking account I will probably be OK"
"It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure."
Seems like he hasn't heeded too much.
His belief system keeps investing in a failed political philosophy... until THAT IS... it is HIS money... his PROFIT. Then we see different behaviors.
I think you live to be annoyed.What more annoys me is your love for unilaterally redefining terms to suit your argument. You essentially called me a Socialist for wanting to fund an agency to get tax cheats to pay up. I didn't know that balancing budgets by enforcing existing tax code is "Socialist."
Is it the center of your existence?
I called you a socialist for you social engineering desires, for you only wanting to play with the fringes of the tax code, and for your desire to make THE LARGEST GOVERNMENT AGENCY EVEN LARGER...
Would you like to try again?
Of course you're not sure what I'm talking about.Not sure what you're talking about. However, you may want to check out my thread on Leftist agenda to see just how inaccurate your belief system is.
Playing coy are we?
You believe you have all this brilliance, and in one thread, from start to finish called me both stupid and ignorant (which is fine... I'm a big boy and won't go crying to Mommy)... but now you fail to "connect the dots", the very obvious dots?
Come, come Real Man of Genius, strap on your cappy and think about it a little.
Pssst. The answer is right before you eyes.
