    I paid a bigger percentage of my income in taxes last year than some multi-national companies and billionaires so don't talk to me about slackers.

    We are Nazi Germany now? They were a Fascists, you keep claiming we are socialists and our parents were communists.

    Back in the real world, I believe in the rule of law. I find it interesting though that someone that pretends to be a lawyer would let it slip that you do not believe in the rule of law. LOL!

    more bs you don't pay a higher rate of tax on like income than people like me. and more importantly you don't pay near the same dollars as I do. if i am a merchant i don't care how much of your income it takes to buy my product-a rich man who pays full price is far more helpful than some guy who claims he ought to get a 50% discount because his income is less.

    a billionaire citizen of the USA domiciled here pays more income tax than 50 million Americans. and that billionaire certainly doesn't use as much government resources as those 50 million

    why do the weak minded constantly claim I am not an attorney when others have schooled them on such stupidity?

    Some laws are good some laws are bad-worshiping a law merely because it was enacted is the sign of a fool

    The top tax class owns 80% of the wealth, so in a fair tax system, they would pay 80% of the taxes.

    that's really stupid as usual

    taxes should be levied based on what you use just like every other service. and a tax on wealth is moronic though it appeals to ne'er do wells who are mad that they are failures

    I am glad you support the USSC rulings on gun rights and corporations being able to spend what they want on campaigns
