    I admire a man with integrity that always votes his conscience.

    I disagree with your choice but I have a great respect for you. It is inspiring to see someone that is consistent with their beliefs.

    What is weird that there wasn't more people voting A.
    So a lot of people hate income taxes so much that they would rather make $30K then $125K?

    Nonsense...that's just nuts.

    It's nothing to do with taxes..it's to do with standard of living.

    What decent family provider says: no, I want my family to suffer on $30K rather then in $125K?

    A crappy one.

    I personally believe that every single person should pay a minimum of 1% in taxes. I believe this would generate a lot of revenue and give all citizens a sense of dignity and patriotism that currently lacks. Why do you think it is fair for citizens to be denied the right to vote just because the government decided that they shouldn't pay any taxes? Is there any logic in your claim? The people who are fortunate enough to be exempt from federal income taxes didn't make the decision.

    (of course not, why did I ask)

    So you would rather make 30K rather then 125K.

    Noted.

    Noted....weird, but noted.
    I believe anyone making 30k has made that choice, disabilities aside. Why can't people be honest?

    Do you think the people who say things like this are complete liars? or is it something completely different?

    Lots of people think that the graduated income tax is wrong. Have you never seen comments from them in other threads?

    I didn't say you could not answer...I said it was weird...and it is.

    Pretty selfish too, if you have a family.

    The question is simply how much money would you rather make. It did not say how you made it. You could have made it being rich and have all your money in non-capital gains investments or you could work as a token lawyer in your father's law firm - so you barely work but make decent money and so on...

    The question simply said how much...it said nothing about how you made it.

    Prove your claim. Offer someone who makes $30,000 a job making $250,000. Then let us know what happens.

    You're ignoring the work required. Everyone making 30k is capable of making six figures, but they have chosen otherwise. For me, it's simply not worth it. I'm ok with 30k, I'm not ok with the high-speed no-drag 60+ hours a week, life poured into work lifestyle needed to make six figures.

    Why can't people be honest and admit that their income is a result of choices they've made? Anyone making 30k and claiming they'd rather make six figures is lying. They could, they've chosen not to.

    Some of us are ok with it. Can you give a list of these companies that don't kick you out of the door at 39 hours? You know, the ones where you turned down the job?
