    For myself, I will say no because it is your property and you can do with it as you see fit as long as it doesn't infringe the rights of others or harm them. I will state that property includes money, real property, and personal property.
    Well if you mean things like taxes in general (since you included money), then yes I do. Because we've aggregated certain services over government which is, in some cases, best able to handle the high degree of aggregation and sophistication in our society. As such, we all use these services and are all offered these services, so we all pay for these services. If you don't think you should pay, then tough noogies because we ain't going the route of opting out of certain services to avoid certain taxes. It gets well too complicated for crap like that and we're just deal with the reality of the situation. Everyone pays, there's no such thing as a free lunch. If you refuse to pay, you've essentially robbed the rest of us, and that is something we are well within our rights to use government force to use.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The top rate of 77% during WWI was those who made the equivalent of $16 million (in 2007 dollars). The 75% top rate in WWII was for those making the equivalent of $75 million (in 2007 dollars). The 1913 top rate of 7% was for those making the equivalent of $10 million (in 2007 dollars).
    excellent post and that is why next year the taxes will be at the highest in US history. The clinton tax hike hits anyone making more than 200K a year which is far far more people than what happened in the FDR socialist periods

    Interesting (to me), in 1913, only one percent of the population paid federal income taxes. During the first half of the 1900's, financing wars was the reason for the tax hikes we had. Nowadays, financing war doesn't hold a candle to social program expenditures, and those are permanent, so no matter how much taxes keep getting hiked, we can't sustain them. If everyone today who is considered "rich", as defined by our government, was taxed 100% of their income, it still coudn't pay the bills we have. I personally believe that our populace is willfully ignorant of the realities of what we are facing, and the huge implications for all of us if we don't stop the spending and drastically cut back the programs.

    the dems are the party that MAINLY caters to those seeking income redistribution. the dems would lose almost all their ability to garner votes if we seriously cut back on spending/ since so many voters don't currently pay income taxes or suffer tax increases when the dems spend more, they have no incentive to reign in excessive spending

    Absolutely, but the Republicans won't touch Medicare and SS with a 10 ft pole. Because we have a government (and I do agree it's primarily a democrat problem, but both are in it up to their necks), that refuses to be honest with the American people about where we are headed, we will keep sailing this ship until it crashes into the rocks.

    If you look at history the Republicans were the first to use entitlements starting with good ol' Abe. The democrats just jumped on board in the last part of the 19th century. Both parties are for socialism.

    Hey now - don't know the government.
    We're unsinkable like the might Titanic!

    Do away with your rafts and your life preservers, nothing is going to bring us down.
