    Loaded question. Currently in terms of wealth inequality, the US is experiencing extremely high rates, Source. In simplest terms, I believe that the tax burden should be on the wealthy, seeing as how they can afford it.

    And yet none of those deaths have been the doing of the government, not to say that this isn't bad, it's quite bad.

    Venezuela is struggling with a decade-long surge in homicides, with about 118,541 since President Hugo Chávez took office in 1999, according to the Venezuelan Violence Observatory, a group that compiles figures based on police files.

    since you refuse to put up the data/links/info that was requested, you will be leaving this thread, correct?

    Nope, maybe you weren't clear for the years we have known each other. I don't respond well to empty requests for well known information that is designed to send the poster you can't answer on a day long information snipe hunt, only to gather everything you want and either never hear from you again on the subject, or have you just dismiss it.

    I am here to offer my opinion just like you are, and unless someone in a position of authority, something you don't hold anymore tells me I have to leave, or cool it, I plan to keep the heat on. So, either you show us you know what you are doing with that box in front of you and use the Google function to educate yourself beyond your Union pamphlets telling you to lock step like a good Obama bot, or provide something of substance to debate realistically, either way I don't care, your style, and substance are little more than a morning warm up anyway, in fact, I'm only typing with one hand right now.....heh, heh....

    So now tell me comrade, do you agree that Obama's FY2012 budget is really a weak stick attempt to say he is cutting something when he really isn't or not?

    So how has that wealth redistribution worked out for you over the years? Seems you want the govt. to redistribute wealth and all that has done is fail at every level leaving us with a bloated Federal Govt. and over 14 trillion dollars in debt. There is no way that the rich can fund the liberal appetite for spending but will promote that goal by class warfare and convincing people how evil those rich people are. Is Bill Gates evil? How about Warren Buffet? Where would the charities get their money to actually help people if it weren't for rich people? think that is the role of the Federal Govt?

    I'm sure that will be very comforting to the families of the murder victims.
