    1) he ingratiates himself to people like you and he helps support the dems-its the party he supports

    2) high death and income taxes prevent others from making it to the top.

    Where are your priorites man? What's more important, keeping the middled class from poverty or the rich being able to afford a second yacht???

    He was just one example. I can find more examples of rich people calling for higher taxes on them. I believe Bill Gates has for instance.

    Who knows? Bush wasn't serious about economic growth.

    Added 12,000 pages of regulations and spent like a drunken sailor.

    I would go as far as abolishing the income tax completely.

    Involuntary theft.

    At least you have some amount of choice with a consumption tax.

    They could make a skyscraper out of 100 dollar bills and still be the richest men in the world.

    I am sure they could care less what their tax rate is.

    Taxes aren't theft. They are the price you pay for civilization. You don't wanna pay taxes then go live in the woods.
