Don't tread on me= Don't tread on my corporate masters
To paraphrase Christopher Hitchens:
If Bill Clinton was a socialist, I think I would know by now. There aren't very many of us and we're generally sort of "in touch."
It's nice to see that you have no argument to offer at all, which is why you had to reference an election that has nothing to do with this discussion.
Please, no platitudes as responses. Thanks in advance !
socialist in Congress.
Seems he is very interested in the top 1% of tax payers, yet neglects this
To put this in perspective, the top 1 percent is comprised of just 1.4 million taxpayers and they pay a larger share of the income tax burden now than the bottom 134 million taxpayers combined.
The Tax Foundation - Tax Burden of Top 1% Now Exceeds That of Bottom 95%
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
First of all, I don't give a damn what your "preferred version" is.Maybe 'splain "societal framework conducive to prosperity" vs. my preferred version "economic framework conducive to earning it"
Secondly, you don't live in a third world country. You live in a country where everyone is, to some extent, dependent on the labor of others. It's a simple division of labor. Nobody would be where they are today if society didn't have every kind of labor -- from burger flippers to loggers. You are, to one degree on another, dependent on others to uphold a society that permits you to secure wealth and then secures that wealth for you from theft.
You can't be a lawyer without people to pass laws and then people to judge cases, or without people to teach your law classes, or without people who make all of the paper you use. If you worked hard in law school, good for you, but other people's labor made it possible, not just your own. In exchange for all of that, it's incumbent on you to do your part to ensure a society where everyone has the same opportunities as you.
Now, respond without blabbering about the Founders or a rant about personal responsibility. Thanks in advance.
