“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
From each according to their ability? I oppose raising taxes on any group because the government needs to demonstrate it can cut spending before it demands more wealth from anyone but if taxes have to go up they should go up first on the groups that are currently unaware (or ignore) the fact that increased government spending COSTS MONEY and that is NOT the rich but rather the middle class that drives so much of the spending
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
This is one of the questions I have always had regarding politicians like Pelosi. Her and her husband fall into the "rich" category. Why have they not just paid what they felt was the "fair share" without being told. I also can understand that they are only obligated to pay what the tax code calls for.
I also tend to set my tax withholding so I only get back a very small amount or $0 at the end of the year. To pay more in as a savings device is only give the govt. a free loan. It is my money, not the govt, I can do better with my savings than the govt. holding it for me as a tax return.
