    I love watching youngsters who haven't had much dealings with the real world. those who think companies exist to give them a job and provide parasitic politicians with tax dollars.

    I post plenty of links-but I usually use logic.

    Common sense would say lower the Corporate Tax Rate.......most Democrats on the other hand, say Corporate Tax Rates should be increased.......as raising taxes on Businesses and Evil Rich People is of course the alltime and current universal liberal solution to all ails.

    Now the Left will contend that "Corporations dont pay taxes"....."Corporate subsidies"......"Corporate Welfare"......"Corporations need to pay their fair share"......"I believe every word Obama says"...."Shipping Jobs Overseas"......as their justification for raising taxes on corporations.

    ....and while there are exceptions, GE, and blue moons, if there was more than a shred of truth to the Democrat's portrayal of Corporations in this country........WHY DOES THE MASS EXODUS OF CORPORATIONS W/JOBS continue in this country? Why do so few countries SHIP THEIR JOBS TO THE US?


    I say lower the Corporate Tax Rate to 10%, with a 10% flat tax on individuals, and make this country The Most Business and Consumer Friendly Country in the World. Remove the Liberal chains, and begin to welcome Businesses w/Jobs back to this country, and stop chasing MADE IN THE USA businesses out.

    The Greatest Country in the World.......Businesses dont leave these shores willingly.......its at the end of a Democrat whip.

    But the large multi-nationals are not paying taxes. GE is not the exception, it is the norm of multi-nationals, meaning the 35% marginal rate is almost meaningless. In fact, corporations are paying less and less of the overall tax burden (see below). This is a trend that should be reversed.

    I am in favor of lowering the top marginal rate to 25%, installing a minimum tax, rolling back many of the accelerated write-offs and tax credits and hiring more IRS auditors.

    We need them more than they need us, and that's simple fact.
    Don't get hung up on the marginal, none of the multi-nationals are paying it. Its only the small, mid-sized companies that actually pay tax at 35%... and they are going anywhere. Besides, the tax is assessed on US income, the location of the corporate HQ isn't relevant.

    um.... that has no connection whatsoever to do with the ecnomic philosophy of fascism.... it's sort of like saying it's fascist to eat hot dogs without buns.

    I think whysoserious' comments were a facetious reply in response to Gipper. He was being sarcastic.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
