    Advocating for a sound taxation policy which will contribute to a sustainable American society which works for all American citizens is the issue here. This is not about "sticking it" to anyone and to pretend that it is engages in intellectual dishonesty, diversions and smoke and mirrors.

    such a system requires a code that prevents the many from demanding unlimited spending paid for by more and more taxes on the rich-a system that cannot be sustained

    Guess you would say the same about pro football, baseball, basketball players. Lets include top movie/tv actors. Of course its capitalism. One thing great about this country. You don't have to go to a sports game, movie or a political speakers presentation.

    You could not be more wrong about that. If Clinton rented out a stadium and people paid to get into it and he made a bunch of money your analogy would be appropriate and I would say fine, no problem. That is not how Clinton gets paid, hope you understand the difference.

    All this liberal pap is nothing but crap.
    Its called a business. If thats against human nature, how in the world do you explain the success of capitalism?
