    you dishonestly compare one form of income with another
    Despite your feigned ignorance, you know very well that capital gains are taxed at a lower rate only because the voters allowed it based on the false advertising of the trickle down theory by the conservatives. Since the trickle down didn't result from the tax cuts, there is no reason for voters to continue to allow them.

    Unlike the Rich Boys and corporations that just buy Congressional votes directly. Why bother with the common voter when it's the Congressional votes that count?

    If you were in a union who dues went to support republicans, would you consider yourself to have voluntarily contributed?

    Being in a union is voluntary, so, yes I would.

    You misunderstood completely, which just shows how out of touch you are with the "common man".

    That is true as well, but you have to ask yourself why. If the government wasnt so involved and wielded so much power there would be no incentive to buy their votes. So long as congressmen have virtually unlimited power to control and regulate business, there will be business leaders who attempt to influence their votes with cash. It is power that corrupts, money is drawn to that power.

    Hey, you guys make the rules and say the work place is all voluntary! No one is forcing people to take jobs at union shops.
