    Gabriel thinks they swindled people to get that way. But you are right-I think there was a book called "the millionaire next door" that lays that all out.

    I never said that we need to eliminate taxes. In fact, I gave the perfectly fair tax system that is in the Constitution of the United States in post 134. I don't see you sending off your entire check to the government for redistribution.

    There is a rather strong correlation between intelligence and education and income. US today did a study of that in about 2004 that noted that education and intelligence is becoming more and more important in becoming wealthy than at any time in American history. furthermore, high paying low education factory jobs are disappearing and one of the reason why there is a bigger gap between the well off and the working poor is because the working poor usually did not make proper choices or their parents didn't make proper choices leaving them undereducated in a society where education is more and more a requirement.

    Progressive taxation is the only "fair" tax because of the axiom of needs being cost into the equation.

    wrong again-your needs should not affect my tax bill. I don't pay more for a car because of your needs-I should not pay more for government services. and as I noted before, we net tax payers would have never agreed to a government where we are forced to pay for people like you.
