    sorry if the truth upsets you. I find it disgusting that those who don't pay their share of the load constantly whine those who do need to pay even more.

    I think the country would be better off if those who had to pay more taxes had more votes. Then politicians couldn't win elections by promising the many, the wealth of the few

    What ever floats your boat tinker bell.

    But the truth is

    1. you are nothing special.
    2. I highly doubt you ever went to law school.
    3. I highly doubt you are rich.

    You can live in neither of those places and do pretty well.
    It's all about expectations.
    You don't spend it wisely and you won't do well.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You would give additional votes to those who pay higher taxes? And this would directly and intentionally and blatantly violate the sacred principle of one person - one vote.

    So in your ideology, you directly equate ones right as a citizen with ones ability to pay a specific tax to a certain level of government?

    one person one vote is hardly sacred-except to those who pander to the masses. It sure isn't sacred in corporate america-you one one share and I own 100 you think you get as many votes? or better yet if you don't have any shares at all?
