    There is no benefit for the middle class or the economy to keep voting for the tax cuts for the rich that simply increase the debt we are then responsible for. This will become more apparent to you in November.
    Where Have I said the GOP is going to win? You have a built in advantage by pandering to the many with the wealth of the few. For every winner there are dozens of losers and the Dems spend tons of time trying to convince more and more people that they are not able to win and need the dems to take care of them

    there is no benefit for those who suck on the public tit to tell the government to stop spending or to keep the taxes on the producers down. And you do everything possible to increase the number of tit suckers

    what you or I say will happen means diddley squat. what will happen will happen. If most people think they need to be coddled by the government your side will win. If more people think they can achieve-you will lose

    but you braying as if you are better if your side wins is idiotic. I was rich when Clinton was president, I was rich when Reagan was president and I was richer when W was president and I am richer now than at any time

    and I suspect you will still be whining about your lot in life no matter who wins

    Romney’s Estate Tax Cut Would Save The Koch Brothers Up To $8.7 Billion Each

    "Romney has, of late, been trying to claim the economic plan he put forth is meant to aid the middle-class, not those in the Koch brothers’ tax bracket. “I want to focus on where the people are hurting the most, and that’s the middle class. I’m not worried about rich people. They are doing just fine,” Romney said at a GOP debate last month. Yesterday, he even tried to claim “I’m proposing no tax cuts for the rich.”Leaving aside that Romney intends to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, he has proposed a huge giveaway to the very rich by suggesting the complete elimination of the estate tax. Only the very richest households in the country ever have to pay the estate tax, since, right now, an estate must be worth more than $5 million (or $10 million for a couple) to pay any estate tax at all.
    Currently, more than half of the estate tax is paid by the richest 0.1 percent of households. And according to a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation, the Koch brothers heirs’ would save a combined $17.4 billion in estate taxes thanks to Romney’s plan."

    Taking money out of circulation is simply a 100% equitable (and extremely cheap!) method to redistribute wealth. When a dollar is destroyed those that are left are worth just a tiny bit more than they used to be. I'm sure you know this, Turtle, don't act so shocked. No, I do not condone burning down a mansion or crushing a 1930 Duesenberg.

    Re: which best describes your view of the inheritance tax?

    Let's see, if we follow the lame logic of trickle down economics, low taxes create jobs, so the taxes need to go to zero for all, which will create millions of jobs, and will somehow make the middle class better off, the poor have jobs, etc.
    I'm no economist, but my guess is that it won't happen.
    Our infrastructure will collapse, the hungry will turn to crime, and the rich will have to hire private security forces to protect them from the masses. Even cops will turn to crime, and they have guns issued to them.
    War Lords will pop up, communities will form based on ideology and/or theology, and thousands will die.
    Think it can't happen? A lot of countries are already in that condition. Most of the middle east has great wealth concentrated in very few hands, but at least their govt leaders have convinced their poor that it is the fault of the great satan of the USA and other western govts. As long as the poor are unarmed, it works. Wait, Lybia, Syria, have unarmed poor, but they are in open revolt anyway.
    If you want to live well and safe in a nice country, pay your taxes. You don't have to stop whining about it....whining isn't being taxed.....not yet, anyway.

    Are you saying that I am a non contributor? And if so, what would make you issue this judgment about me? You do not even know me.
