    When it comes to the wealthy, this means picking up the slack in tax revenues.
    Equal opportunity for all, not equal out comes.
    If you earn your money by legal means, that's what counts.
    This administation is setting up a framework that is not conducive to prosperity, but dependence on government instead.

    Please direct this inane platitude at someone to whom it is relevant. Nobody is talking about equal results but you.

    Maybe you could call me "sonny boy" or "young whippersnapper" some more. That should enhance your argument.
    My post is exactly to the point, you and others are more worried about who pays what in taxes and how much someone else makes instead of worrying about how the money is spent. It is a slippery slope when the govt. gets involved in personal responsibility issues and earning income is a personal issue which you control. Why don't you have outrage over the money our govt. spends? It is a spending problem, not a revenue problem and anytime someone promotes class warfare it deverts from that reality.

    Tell us what "very liberal" means because all I see from very liberal people is jealousy and promotion of bigger govt. Is profit a four letter word in your world? Think it is right that 47% of the income earners in this country don't pay any Federal Income taxes?

    Would you care to tell me exactly in what way I'm "jealous" of anything? Quit babbling like an idiot.

    I agree, it's a spending issue. The government is spending more money than is responsible, and then they're forced to take foreign loans to back it up. Why? Because of the masochistic idea that progressive taxation is class warfare. Our government should be spending more, not less. Of course, it can't do this because of plutocratic nutjobs like you.

    LOL, now that is funny, you calling me a plutocratic nutjob. Thanks for the Saturday entertainment, bet you are a real "hoot" at parties. Looks to me like someone needs a nap or a pacifier but more importantly you need a history and civics lesson. Educate yourself and read about the Founders, then read the Constitution. What you are promoting never sold with the founders but like the good little liberal socialist that you are, incrementalism was working for you until this last election. Seems that the majority in this country no longer buy into your big govt., higher spending mantra. Our govt. doesn't spend their money they spend ours. Do your part and send your entire paycheck to the govt. and let them send you back what they think you deserve or need. you want bigger govt. nothing is stopping you. Put your money where your mouth is.

    Oh, this is good.

    Here, let me make your arguments for you:

    "SOCIALISM!!!"
    "JEALOUSY!!!"
    "CLASS WARFARE!!!"
    "THE FOUNDERS!!!"

    I don't give a damn what the Founders intended, you half-wit monkey. The Founders no longer hold elected offices. It isn't their country, it's ours. As long as we don't live in a necrocratic cult society, I'll continue to advocate my views as permitted under our precious Constitution. If you want your political ideals to be the result of over two centuries of intellectual stagnation, then that's your prerogative. Just cut the crap and admit that you're a backward lumpenprole.

    Sadly, it seems politics is a bit more like this:
