    I'm glad...but it has been difficult to keep up as you have jumped all over the place from general fund to social security to tax the rich to rich not paying for all of it to...?

    So what? He pays 1000x more tax. A median income worker paid 10,000 in taxes. Romney paid 3 million. Did he get something more for his contribution?

    what will you do when the rich unite and decide to squash people like you? you are doing a good job in creating such an environment

    you should pay for what you use and stop whining that others should fund your existence your existence benefits me none at all so why do I have a duty to pay for someone who is conspiring to take more of my property?

    he gets LESS

    but the parasite or income redistributionist mindset believes that from each according to their ability (and their votes) is all that counts

    You don't understand percentages do you? Counting FICA taxes, the median income worker pays a higher percentage of his total income in Federal and state taxes than do people like Romney.

    As has become painfully clear to the majority of the country, a consumer economy cannot prosper when too much of the wealth is concentrated at the top.

    the old from each according to their ability (and votes)

    a country that caters to dependency and parasitic activity fails

    its funny how you always try to justify your class envy arguments by appealing to the authority of the masses

    You don't understand that FICA is not FIT, do you? Romney pays the maximum FICA tax (considerably more than most), and a higher tax rate than 97% of Americans.

    Fixed that for you.
