Allowing many people to have a shot at being uber-wealthy is dangerous
Making the uber-wealthy share the load would be bad for the economy
The middle class do not have as much of an influence on politics as the wealthy do
The idea that the middle class pay the most crippling amount of income tax is a myth
A few wealthy, a few more middle class and many lower class citizens is best
If you want a specific reasoned argument - here is the most direct I can come up with. Because if we did it your way, we would have nation led, governed ruled and voted in by elitist snobs who are only looking out for their own selfish narrow financial and social interests and the vast vast majority of the people would be like so much fodder and toilet paper for them. We would no longer have the greatest nation in the world.
Is that clear enough?

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
You just don't get that many of us tire of being told we have to buy into your plan and pay for it
socialists always claim that their schemes will make America better. they always want to force others to do the work though
youve never slapped around anyone on here all you ever done and still do is whine and say the same thing over and over....lawyers are a large part of whats milking this country dry...with class action lawsuits and malpractice and bankruptcy, the list is endless and all of america pays for all that...thats why most politicians are lawyers.....its a fact you cant dispute
You and handful of others want the rest of us to believe the POOR AND POWERLESS are milking the country and pigs at the trough CEOs that make hundreds of millions even when they fail are the victims of the damn poor and powerless....its a joke and the ones that spout it are the biggest joke...its such and outrageous lieing pile of crap...Its you that gets slapped around and looks foolish with your same whine and dance routine over and over

and lawyers are like any other profession some are scum, some are good people. Lots of them are far left dems
There's nothing of substance to even respond to .. I am really trying to find something right now but having a hard time.
OK, here's something you said "socialists always claim that their schemes will make America better" .. when did I say I was a socialist?
Oh, and I am sure that there are many people who don't want to pay taxes, I know its a bummer for me .. but that's the way society works, if you don't like it good luck finding a suitable place to do business where there are no taxes
The problem is way too many people don't pay taxes and yet they whine that others should pay even more
