    A lot of votes on this thread.. more than usual. Is it just me or does it seem fishy?

    Nope, just treated fairly. Nothing more, nothing less. To do otherwise is not only immoral and unpatriotic, it hurts our economy.

    Liberals think that voting for taxes on others satisfy their duty to help others. That is because liberals tend to outsource most personal responsibilities to the government to the point that being charitable to a lib means supporting government redistribution of income rather than personally helping others

    maybe that is why liberals tend to be far less charitable than economically similar conservatives

    I guess to socialists caring is demanding others pay more taxes.

    I find that to be both hypocritical and greedy

    But the reality is, you're not caring about your fellow citizens, you're expecting someone else to pay for your "care". It's real easy to do when you don't have to pay for it out of your own pocket.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Great, then when can I expect my check from the government? After all, I deserve to be treated fairly too, don't I? When can the billionaires expect their checks?

    Nope, I have never said that. All that I, and the 80% of the country that agrees with me, are saying is that the temporary tax cuts given to the wealthy should be eliminated.

    Yeah that justifies it. 80% say the other 5% should pay more taxes
