    Who's to say that it wouldn't bring in more revenue though? At least in the long run it will increase economic output, so cut taxes. At the very least simplify the tax code. That's a drain on production if I ever saw one.

    No. I said they never forced any money from you. Speaking of making things up . . .

    I didn't say I was paying higher taxes, do you always make stuff up?
    Indeed you did:

    I am paying a higher rate to support their benefits.

    Have you tried the Chat threads, you might find those more enjoyable.
    Probably, if this is the quality of your bringin' it.

    Anybody else see something out of place in this statement?

    My point is that you need to quit whining and grow up. When you do that you can then see the light and realize that the government is raping everyone in the ass. And there will be no stop to that until the government is put into check and limited to what it can take from its citizens.
    So you accept whatever comes your way with an attitude of "that's life?" Interesting.
    Yes that is life. Misery, inequality, all a part of life. The same can be said about happiness, love, etc. The point is that we as complex MAMMALS can CHOOSE to be happy. Regardless of what our material wealth is most people in this nation have food, a roof over their head. And if they do not it is because they are morons with money or because they just are stupid.


    I'm sorry, I don't really understand your babble.
    Ok, because most of the crap you post is better? I didn't think so. Quit posting crap from some extremist organization that if they had power the leaders would be just as corrupt as the ones we currently have now. And frankly taxing the hell out of everyone so that you can provide food, housing, healthcare for everyone is a dumb idea. That just makes everyone dependent on the government and that makes them weak.


    I think you have a problem with comprehension. I've not read any post from someone complaining about not being rich. Perhaps you would like to point it out to me.
    READ the sources you have posted. All are complaining about rich people and how they have so much money and how much money they make compare to everyone else. What is their equality that everyone earns six figures? That is stupid and frankly it is complaining about not having enough money, ie not rich.


    Thanks for the enlightening information. Now, why don't you take your own advise and go and do that, I don't have time to play right now.
    No instead of playing you want to steal that is always better than playing by the rules and doing it with your head. You instead like the government want to do it with force.

    Yes, I do see what your trying to say. Lets address them seperate then together. The "Give the money to the wealthy so that they can hire others" was tried and where did that lead us. A gap between the haves and the have nots. It is my experience that the best way for this country to be strong is to have a large middle class. Maybe thats the difference. I want the country to prosper where others seam to only be concerned about themselves.

    New money comment. Its not true for all. I did make a generality. Look at the Gates family. They are new money but look at all of the good they are doing. I have also dealt with people who have old money. They seam to be much more calculated and calm regarding finances. When you make a comment that 450K is not enough to live on and that if taxes go up people are stealing from you then you come off sounding selfesh and uncaring. One out of seven Americans makes less than 20k. Maybe a little gratitude for the go a long way.

    Putting them together: Trickle-down being bunk does not mean that nobody got rich. The number of wealthy people has gone up consistantly over the last two decades. That does not give validation to trickle down.
