    Apparently you think his post doesn't break down taxes. Imagination. The best tool to defending a faulty ideology. Pretend everything you don't like doesn't exist.

    you again confuse opinions with facts and you just don't like the fact that I have no use for parasitic opinions or the "greater good" trumps individual rights argument
    Huh. I guess a cited break down of taxation is just an "opinion."

    and in your haste to try to challenge me you continue to miss the point

    I oppose income taxes and I especially oppose a system that lets people like you vote up the taxes on people who already pay far too much in taxes

    Good luck with that.....my bet is that the GOP won't have the numbers to stop the tax breaks from being extended.....

    no doubt-the numbers of parasites continue to expand while the numbers of net tax payers continue to shrink

    one day the house of cards is going to collapse and all of those who have become dependent on the government to take care of them are going to be in a world of hurt

    the good news is that I expect the tax hikes to really mess this country up in 2012 which will hopefully mean an end to dem control for at least a few election cycles.

    Don,t bet on it,the country WAS dumb enough to elect bush twice.

    And THEREIN lies the problem. The opposite of "Big Government" isn't "Small Government." The opposite of "Big Government" is "French Revolution."

    If that house of cards collapses, the poor aren't just going to sit there and peacefully starve to death. They're going to come get what they need to survive.

    If it's between paying a bit more in taxes and having every city in the US operating like a post-Katrina New Orleans, I know which one I'm choosing.

    It isn't that-jacking up the taxes on those who already pay to much while allowing a majority of the voters to continue to support more spending because they don't face FIT hikes is what is going to cause the collapse

    right now there is no incentive for a majority of tax payers to reign in spending because the dems promise them that others will have to pay more taxes not them

    then when the others have no more to give or stop paying, the dependents will revolt

    Alleged morons. Semi quoting Rummey, there are KNOWN KNOWNS, these are things we KNOW that we KNOW, as apposed to KNOWN. We KNOW that we had a disaster for eight years prior too the present President .We also KNOW we are still digging out from under said disaster. Hopefully the KNOWN President that we KNOW has been in office for only two years can dig us out of the KNOWN hole that we KNOW was caused by the KNOWN incompetence of the previous administration.
