    Better question why does the US government invade other countries and make them change their form of government?

    hy is it that we have so many foreigners coming over here judging our tax laws. It's none of their ****ing business.
    This reasoning is so simplistic it isn't even funny. Our economy is a global economy. Look at the recent financial crisis. It is estimated from that crisis alone, that about 15 million people across the world will move under the poverty line.

    You see, the decisions our government enact effect the world tremendously. It really is their business to know and criticize our tax code, because it will effect them more than ever before.

    Very astute for someone from another country. Many in this country do not have the capacity to make such an accurate analysis.

    I completely agree. And well, an important question to ask is, why do you think that is? (You don't have to answer the question, I am just trying to show the importance of constantly questioning things.)

    I'll have a go at your question. I think it is because they put ideology above what is best for the country.

    Well both econimcal and cultural reason for coming with simple ideas that you free to find brilliant or very stupid or anything between. Economical because USA have a wast impact on the global economy. Also your heavily promotes your movies and televisions show to the rest of the world. That have of course their upsides. But it also leads to foreign people get more interest in comment on your country. Both by comparing their own values with USA:s (or what they believe I USA.s.) But also “real America” with “fictional America”. Take for exampel west wing vs. the Bush administration. That of course everyone understand west wing was a tv show but still many would have like Bartlett as president over Bush.

    My simple suggestion is that they just be happy with what they got. That they not only are among the richest few in the world, but they also have increased their income relatively more then middle and lower income class. Take just look at the graph for the last 10 years of measurment. The next can then maybe be that they should more of the burden with taxes atleast during hard times like these.

    Councilman you need to stop drinking the coolaid...I drank it for years...bush tax cuts didnt create a job we lost a bunch....right now no one is going to create jobs to any degree until after the election...

    And Ive never seen class warfare like the classwarfare the teaparty is waging against SENIORS and the MIDDLE WORKING CLASS, they are turning private sector workers against public workers.. telling them THEY MAKE TOO MUCH, when the truth is the rich have stripped private sector workers of everything....this whole economic malais is the fault of anyone on Social Security or Medicare or in a private pension or a public worker...who are you kidding...theres alot more long time republicans than me who have been totally turned off by the tearparty and their attack on the middleclass

    Only part of the problem lies with politicians. The other part is the apathetic mindset of the American public.

    A sign of this is the use of the word "leaders" to describe our "elected public servants". They are servants of the people, thus followers.

    Aunt Spiker:
    I think our current system is already over the top
    Wouldn't you mean "still" over the top? Since the five decade historic rate preceding the Reagan, Bush and Bush II tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans was twice what it is now, 70%.

    Just a little perspective....

    how does opposing more taxes and more government waste constitute "class warfare"

    are you under the delusion that the tea party wants to end some bloated public sector pension you believe you are entitled to?

    Its very obvious if your not a special interest like yourself....the teaparty since the nov election in several states have attacked state workers and stripped pension and health benes and made them pay more..which is fine except in the same breath they gave HUGE tax cuts to corporations and the wealthiest citizens...that is CLASS WARFARE.
    The rhetoric from the teaparty has beren that the country is broke because of entitlements...medicare social security...unions..public workers...while every proposal they make is to give tax cuts the wealthiest and corps and take from the working class...its pure class warfare...and stay tuned...it will fail

    Dont ask this same question again ok, ...I know your into redundancy but youve asked similar questions many times before...
