    What do you call...

    ...a man who spends more money demanding tax cuts than he actually pays in taxes? I'm taxonomically curious how to describe such a creature.

    I'd call him kinda dumb really for spending money on something he can do for free. Making demands costs nothing.

    Now, here's one for you. What to you call the current placement of this thread in the polls section of the forum? Answer: temporary (I hope).

    Doesn't it take money to make a point? He wants tax cuts. He needs us to agree.

    Maybe because the cutting of taxes isn't because of the money, but values, small government, and votes?

    So can you provide an example of someone doing this, or are you making **** up so you can achieve partisan orgasm?

    someone who believe in the positive economic impacts of reducing tax rates, and is willing to sacrifice his own wealth for the public good?

    OR

    someone who anticipates paying taxes for more than just one year.

    I'm having a hard time understanding what any of this has to do with my new eye glasses being ready for pick up in the morning.

    The problem, IMO, is that a great many do not believe our government is being effective.
    And they have a point, I think.
    But, can private enterprise "do it" better ?
    How about our trade deficit, which has been in effect for nigh 50 years ??
    This, I feel, is the reason why our economy is in the toilet.
    As to those who hate paying taxes - isn't that all of us ?
    But do we need a better system or do we need to "grow up" ??
