Most other countries only tax a corporation on income earned in that country. Why should BK pay US corporate tax on all their income worldwide as well as Canadian corporate taxes on income earned in Canada?
    Because the US government has taken the position that you only get whatever income you have earned after they have taken their cut. In essence they have claimed ownership of all your income and then gifted you whatever they don't take for themselves. There is no reason to assume income earned here or there is any different in this regard.

    It is not a one sided affair.

    Did you ever notice that people that lack an argument always claim their opponents are traitors or unpatriotic? I have.

    Is the tea party mindset that nobody should pay taxes but the poor? Cause that's when right wingers get bent out of shape and complain about others not paying squat and getting benefits. When corporations and the wealthiest pay nothing, it's freedom.

    The US is crony capitalistic. The market isn't really free. The politicians are bribed, funded, and paid for by lobbyist and corporations wanting favors, and the market is tipped in their favor.

    Usually when a service is something people want they are willing to pay for it, but supporters of government taxation argue that taxes must be involuntary because otherwise no one would pay them. This would logically mean the service is not something people desire and therefore has no value, but according to these same people government services are valuable and things the people can't live without.

    Absolutely not. If you won't play by the rules of this country, you don't get the benefits of being here. It's not different than imprisoning or exiling a criminal. You follow US rules and pay US taxes, or you go out the door. These companies are biting the hand that fed them and made them successful. They should show some loyalty to this county and to its people. If they can't do that, then they can say goodbye to our business.

    One is a matter of people doing what is in their best interest while the other is the government treating people differently.

    It's a matter of you treating people differently. Both get handouts and welfare, the only thing different is one is wealthy and the other is not...
