    This poll is a false representation of one side of the argument and an over simplified and dishonest representation of the other side of the argument.

    I did not and will not vote in a dishonest and misleading poll.

    Now, if we as a group would like to have an honest discussion about tax equity and our tax system as a whole, I'll participate happily and willing in that discussion.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Outstanding post!!!

    God, I love reading your posts, especially those like this one, that go straight to the heart of the issue without any fluff or pretense.

    Well done. Again.

    I know that they are both horrific conditions but surely one is more favorable than the other. Right?

    So far that is the popular choice.

    Re: Which would you rather have?

    Does anyone who makes 30k not have a tax burden?

    Because I make less than that and I'm fairly sure I still have some small amount of tax burden.

    Grand Mal voted Option A. Are you accusing him of having no ambition?

    Are you sure the voters weren't suckers and didn't realize I was tricking them into a job working 9 times as hard. He he. I didn't tell them before I hired them.

    If the sloth fits

    It might be a good choice if the other guy was working a job that would kill him by age 40

    If the shoe fits. What I find troubling are the number that voted to settle for half their pay to pay half in taxes. Obviously they do not make 125,000 and are willing to settle at an opportunity to do so even though they originally earned 250,000. How sad.
