    Don't you think this is a pretty silly question to ask anyone? Let me claim that I send the IRS double of what I owe. That satisfies your challenge to me. But you have no way of verifying the information and can call me a liar. I am obviously NOT going to give you my personal tax information - a stranger on a message board - so we are right back to where we started before your challenge.

    So your question is pointless and silly.

    My comment refers to be both paying lots of taxes as well as the interest of a citizen in the laws and policies of my nation as they impact me and every other citizen.

    You seem to be subscribing to the Turtle playbook. Was a memo sent out on this?

    No one mentions the obvious way to cut deficits, eh? Massive cuts in spending; oops, that's a no-no.

    Didn't call you a liar but it does appear that you support forced sending of someone else's money to the govt. instead of promoting volunteering sending more of your own money. Since when did the govt. become responsible for the duties required of charities? Like all liberals when challenged you make it personal. I really don't care how much you make or send to the govt. Why do you care how much someone else makes or sends? Seems you are concerned about the 2% top income earners and don't seem to care that when taxes go up that leaves less for charities. Just a little bit of information on charities.
