Everyone should pay the same rate on their dollars so the parasites cannot be bought with promises that they will get goodies payed for by OTHERS paying a higher rate
    Disgusting FDR administration? Oh lord. Even if that much was taken, you'd still have a comfortable life, plenty of food, shelter, clothing, luxury goods.. You call working people parasites, and disgust me. My dad is on disability, is he a parasite?

    Not really. If I am willing to sell my labor for 15 an hour who are you to tell me I cannot or that I am being "exploited"? Profit makes the world go around. Its why we have the most advanced society in the world. Those who whine about profit generally are those who have failed to succeed

    also the FDR admin was disgusting but for different reasons than high taxes

    I don't call working people parasites. I call those who demand others fund their existence parasites. Your existence is not a just claim on the wealth or time of others.

    By definition, although you may not think it, you are being exploited. Just like the diamond miners in africa, they may have no choice but to work, but they may not view it as exploitation, even though we all know it is. What's your definition of success? My dad worked in construction all his life, destroyed his shoulders, despite healthcare on a private insurance plan, which barely covered the surgery he would need, which he couldn't afford, so now he is on disability, while I work with my mother to support my family. I guess I'm a ****ing failure.

    I applaud them for the new deal programs and the discussed second bill of rights we never got.

    People want a minority who control most wealth to contribute to the government, if you don't like it, go fund your own damn country.
