    makes perfect sense.
    No, I didn't say you just "don't hate the rich," you prostrate yourself and lick their boots. Big difference between indifference and I-forgot-that-word.

    sorry if you are offended that I won't join your group in hating people over nothing more than their financial success.

    I do, however, hope that one day you will be financially successful as well.

    You're right on the point, but remain wrong on the issue. The effective rate drop is equally impressive; falling more than 20% (from 37% to 29.5%) on the highest 1% over the past 30 years.

    Again, this eco group has no reason to whine. The IRS should be cracking down on tax evaders. Its their job.

    In threatening to denounce their citizenship and leave they show themselves to be woefully unpatroitic almost to a treasonous level. Seems to me this is a group (those that would actually denounce America and leave) are unwanted Americans that should be deported.

    I thought these people were supposed to be role models for the rest of us. Choosing greed over patriotism like this makes for a pretty bad one. The message here is "I love obscene amounts of money more than I love my country." I guess we've seen their true colors now.

    Or the message could be, "How can I love a country that is trying to steal more and more of my money every year...and will certainly succeed soon."

    You seem to think people have a duty to be soaked by parasitic politicians. Your first duty is to yourself and your family, not ingrates and scum sucking politicians who use your wealth to buy the votes of people who feel as you do.

    Maybe if all the dependents would be patriotic and start paying their own way rather than sitting back on their asses demanding others pay for them

    ORRRRR you should be grateful enough Americans are not that selfish and see duty to the greater good is what Jesus would have done.

    Not saying a soldier, firefighter, cop, nurse, teacher, or EMT is the second coming, but thank Gawd it was more than a 'life choice' for them to step up for those who are at home stacking cheese and spitting at the world.

    To each their own.

    do the rich have an unlimited duty to pay more and more taxes just because the majority use their voting power to soak the minority who already pay the most taxes?
