    it sure works on stuff like excise taxes on firearms and it works fine on SS and Medicare.

    there are no equal results and there is no equal opportunity - so lets trash and flush those at the same time.

    I'm glad you now have trashed equal results. I will try to remember that.

    The problem being that both sides - all sides - want to use the tax system to their own advantage and to advance their own purposes. As one very obvious example, capital gains taxes at much lower rates than income from work pay. Supposedly, since we want investment and consider that a noble goal to encourage, we do so by providing lower tax rates for it.

    Are you against that kind of manipulation with the tax system also?

    I have nothing against attempting to make things more fair in society - I simply do not expect equal results in all things.

    That has already been tried , so we might have to find a differant way.

    You do remember the election of 2000 and a little place called Florida?

    Maybe this phrase will jog your memory "Stop counting the votes I know who the president is"

I feel sorry for the middle class and the poor because they have you on their back trying to make them feel weak.
    Odd the middle class in Greece wasn't week nor Paris.
    The poor and middle class wasn't week in Seattle.
    If you trace back history you will find the middle class and poor wasn't week in the 60's either.

    However if you track back in history after 1929 a lot of rich were jumping off buildings , in 2008 the rich were in trouble they ask to be bailed out with taxpayer money to save their company, their job and their bonus
    Which is week here?

    A majority "a huge majority of poor and middle class want jobs with a fair wage to pay taxes and make a living.
    A majority of the rich want more tax cuts, more profit, more money.
    Who cares more about America???

    Thank you.

    First I would lower corporate tax I would have some less regulations but not to extreme.

    Then I would order at least 50% of all utsourced jobs back to America across the board in all industries.
    Those that did not comply would be taxed more on every product entering the U.S. made with cheap foriegn labor.
    Just as those who bought foriegn products would be paying a higher tax.

    Then I would have a profit line for corporations if the profits went below the line they would be backed by the federal government bailout like a golden parachute, we have that anyway might as well make it work for all people

    In this case the corporations would never go below the profit line so they couldn't lose money, the American workers would be working at a reasonable wage not too high not too low, leaving enough to buy American products which would be taxed less than foriegn products.
