    You may want to check with your copy of the Constitution. If yours has the same language as mine we have a provision against such a thing.

    And actually, even if we could have your suggested restriction, it would be hard to find any adults who do not contribute to the so called "public treasury" in one form of tax or another.

    I have roughly the same question of you. Why are your panties twisting into a knot about what think? It's free country isn't it?

    "Should" is a morally elusive concept.

    As far as I'm concerned, the rich can have as much money as they can make until it starts causing socio-economic dysfunction and becomes self defeating.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The market values aren't properly set... I am not suggesting anything will change, just that rich people that make a ton of money complaining about having to pay more is so selfish that it makes them pathetic people.

    I don't believe you or anyone else should have that power.

    That's IMHO is anti-American thought.

    When I see KKK dudes riling up a riot against people they don't like, I want to tell them to STFU and disperse. When I see class warriors burning up with envy and trying to harm people, I want to tell them to mind their own business. What other people earn doesn't affect you. Your envy is something better discussed with your therapist than with a political mob.

    You're not sure where I got the word "scared" from? Maybe you should review your own posts. Alarmist views don't fly with me, and the only ones being suppressed are those able bodied individuals being given more to not produce rather than providing an environment for them to do so...
