    Yes I saw your response to my requesting you proffer a definition of a fair share of taxes.

    Your FAIR SHARE assumptions are ideologically biased and ignore the reality that the vast majority of people have to live with. Your FAIR SHARE assumptions are intentionally adopted to pretend that regardless of how much money someone has, they can afford to pay the same percentage of taxes. Your FAIR SHARE assumptions are based on the delusion that there is some relationship akin to retail shopping where you fill your cart with only the items you want to pay for then proceed to the check out and write the check. Your FAIR SHARE assumptions are based on a totally bogus understanding of the societal implications of an unhealthy and unsustainable system of taxation in which the income of many of the wealthy are taxed at far lower and more discriminatory rates in their favor that income of average working people.

    Their is nothing FAIR about this.

    So I do not care about your FAIR SHARE strawman.

    What would that be? SS and Medicare are Constitutional according the rule of law in this country. And, SS has not added one dime to our debt.

    I have a great idea--we libertarians and conservatives pay for the government programs we support and you libs pay for the crap you want.

    Well said, I don't think people understand what the phrase "you can't squeeze blood from a turnip" means and the cure response sometimes given of "but you can get turnip juice" shows how seriously these people actually take the situation. If the best you can do is "turnip juice", then it is clear that the wealthy who whine about paying their fair share in taxes are so well off that they have nothing better too do than complain about paying a little chump change to the governmental system that allowed them to become so wealthy

    You really do NOT get it at all. There is no FAIR. There is no FAIR for anyone. Life is not FAIR and never was suppose to be.

    What part of that is difficult to grasp? There is no FAIR.
