    And you base this on what? Seeing how liberal politicians push for welfare benefits for illegals, put this progressive tax system in place and many other things you assertioins that they do not get heard is false.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Are we talking about occupy now? Are you changing the topic because even you don't know what you're talking about, or are you just raging like your name says? Both?

    I don't feel like it would be ethical for me personally to demand that somebody with a higher effective rate than mine pay even more to support services I use. Especially when my tax burden is not so significant that it prevents me from advancing my current position. Of course, ethics have little to do with the political polarization that's so prevalent in today's society.

    I base it on reality. Money talks even if don't sing and dance.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    By daring to express their opinion to their elected officials, apparently.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Oh, I missed this. Thanks, I didn't know that the definition of dictate was calling,writing,emailing and faxing. I'll have to look up dictate again.

    I didn't say anything about not using government services. I'm not sure what your point is here.

    When I was observing a Tea Party demonstration I didn't know they were dictating. (Among other things that were interesting at the demonstration were the people carrying "NO GOV HEALTH CARE" that were paying for their healthcare with Medicare, they actually didn't know Medicare was a gov. program!)
