    To each their own.

    anyone who wants more government than they can afford to pay for is by definition selfish. Its far more selfish to impose costs on others than it is for me to not want to pay for what you want

    sanctioning people who choose to renounce citizenship is nothing to be patriotic about.
    US treatment of expats ( those whom do not renounce citizenship) is nothing to be proud of for Americans.... and in many cases, renouncing citizenship is the only route to go.

    maybe if you pay the same amount of taxes as the rich then you might have some credibility. if you don't then you have no valid comment.

    I found this study fascinating.....

    "....The rich really are different from the rest of us, scientists have found — they are more apt to commit unethical acts because they are more motivated by greed.

    People driving expensive cars were more likely than other motorists to cut off drivers and pedestrians at a four-way-stop intersection in the San Francisco Bay Area, UC Berkeley researchers observed. Those findings led to a series of experiments that revealed that people of higher socioeconomic status were also more likely to cheat to win a prize, take candy from children and say they would pocket extra change handed to them in error rather than give it back....

    Wealthy, motivated by greed, are more likely to cheat, study finds - Los Angeles Times


    It seems to back up this study as well...

    Why Are the Poor More Charitable Than the Rich?


    Apparently, the wealthy really do think they're priviledged and don't have to abide by social norms or obey the laws. If truth be told, people don't hate the wealthy because they're rich, they hate them because they're assholes.

    that is generally true with the power hungry rich-the ones that vote for big government and desire more control over other people.

    given that so many rich favor the dems, thanks for that bogus study

    You should try making some sense with your posts. I have no idea what your point is or why you are attacking me.
