Reading the post on here I guess you just don't see through the beer googles you are wearing, most politicians go into office broke and leave millionaires due to lobbyist that don't care about the public but instead themselves, for someone of her status it just goes to show that she is in to help others not herself or lobbyist.


Who really cares if her family is rich, at least she is trying to do something about the inner city folks instead of just talking about it.

We have agreed to taxes because we have agreed to adhere to the civilization in which we live.


I haven't agreed to these taxes. All taxes are "imposed" upon me. And I don't have a big enough army to fight back.

When Colonial Americans got upset with taxes they had to pay to the British, they just formed an army and revolted.

Americans won the right to live tax free. And then gradually began to reverse the win by increasingly adding all sorts of taxes themselves over the decades.

We may as well ask the Monarch of Great Britain to "take us back", we might get to pay less taxes over there.

If you like driving on roads and being able to call the cops on people who may violate you Constitutional rights then you are okay with paying taxes. I'm not saying that I, or you, should always agree on the way our taxes are spent or the amount levied. But, overall, taxes fund civilization.

Taxes don't fund civilization. Taxes only existed a few hundred years ago. Civilization existed for thousands of years before there were taxes. USSR and communist countries didn't have taxes and they functioned quite well. Only greed for profit betrayed communism.

So they are going to take uneducated, unskilled, unemployed inner city colored folks and transplant them into the suburbs with no way of supporting themselves there? They will all be running crack houses, whore houses, raping your neighbors and smiling as they make America great again.

This won't work but it beats being invaded by Obama's radical Islamic immigrants.

It's time to lift African Americans out of the inner cities of big cities and into the suburbs. It is long overdue.

I can't wait! Is she going to airlift them out with her dad's helicopter?


You want to play that game?
OK!
Obama can fly out his poor on this jet given to him by one of his stooges, Richard Branson (they all worship their king).

Hilltery can do the same!


Or how about the VP that invented the internet?


The point being, socialists hate Trump because he is destroying their agenda (21).
And so far, I back anyone who opposes obama/clinton/ or other socialists wanting to destroy our Democratic Republic!

I'm pretty sure history says that Romans paid taxes. Invasions and expansion brought their empire down. After 500 years.

Chinese empire also had taxes. These taxes are very low, only enough to support the national army. Today's taxes go to support the healthcare, the education, it goes too far beyond what taxes are intended for, which is national defense.

Tax is theft. More tax on the rich will drive them angry. They would probably start shooting the poor.

Yes kneel before the wealthy less they be angered. Throughout history the poor has wiped out the wealthy through revolution. The wealthy lose because they have no one to fight for them.

Man, the cops violate peoples constitutional rights just as much as the next guy.

Whether you get to enjoy constitutional rights or not, depends on how rich or poor you are in America.

The evidence shows that only those who can defend themselves, enjoy these rights, anyway.

Try to take Donald Trump's constitutional rights away, and he'll hire the best lawyers and put the rights violator out of a job. The Donald got a reporter fired, for just writing an article about him that he didn't like.

So, your rights vary, depending on how "strong" you are, just like the law of the jungle.

We call it civilization, because the rich "hire the muscle" to enforce their rights, instead of using "their own muscle."

Strength is measured by the amount of dollars in your bank account, instead of the number of muscle cells in your arms and legs.

But, the principles are otherwise the same.

If you remove all taxes, the rich will still hire "contractors" to avoid using their own muscle.

Nothing will change. The poor will remain unprotected, and the rich will still have their "private cops."

So, what does taxes do?

Personally, I'm in favor or taxes on consumption only. No income tax. We want people to work and produce things. Income taxes discourages work. It treats "work" as a "privilege", for which you must "pay the government". That's why so many are out of work. In some cases, you work for 1/2 the year to pay the government, then you start earning money for yourself to support your own family.

The bible says nobody should pay more than 10% of their annual earnings to the society they live in, because that society can't claim to provide more than 10% of that wealth back to any individual. The true origin of all wealth is God himself. When you begin to suck more than 10% of a persons revenues, you start to "drain" that persons energy and reduce his effectiveness in generating that wealth. At which point, the bible again says to the individual "give up everything", and "let them have it all", and "walk away, and follow me." That's why Jesus says, if they take your coat, give them your cloak also.[Matthew|5:40].

You see, the way the world works is this: God gives man all his gifts, and man uses those gifts to generate wealth. But, each man receives the same gifts from God, so why do men have to hand over their own gifts to other men, who already have their own from the same source? Well, God also wants men to be charitable, so he gives some men more and others less, so that those with more can "practice charity" and give 10% to the less fortunate. Giving is good for the heart. But, when men start "taking" more than that 10%, the good thing of giving, becomes a bad thing of greed. The balance is upset.

To solve this problem, I suggest, income tax should be abolished, and a tax of no more than 10% should be applied to all products and services.

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written here.

Every argument and even your premise in the OP makes no sense at all.

It's almost like you intentionally take the most illogical path toward any situation and try and convince others that it's the correct one. I can't imagine why you think that is a good idea. You also contradict yourself multiple times on your positions from thread to thread. Of which you create far too many per day BTW.

I don't get what this has got to do with the poor, or African Americans? Wasn't mentioned anywhere in the Article. This is just supposed to alleviate fears about conflict of interest.


a reply to: allsee4eye

I don't see anything racist about that post...


I agree. I can't see anything that would benefit poor African Americans either. The thing is if you took all of Trump's profits and used it to help the poor, it would not go far at all. A hundred million bucks spread out among a million people is only a hundred bucks a peace. It is better to build businesses to help the poor make a living wage than to give them the money. A hundred million bucks could build ten decent businesses that help support five hundred people and their families for many years. We need to invest in businesses in this country not give a little amount of money to the poor.

Hey, I never said our system was perfect!



The bible says nobody should pay more than 10% of their annual earnings to the society they live in, because that society can't claim to provide more than 10% of that wealth back to any individual.


The Bible doesn't say that! People were already paying 10% "Temple Taxes" and Caesar wanted what he wanted on top of that. Jesus told them to pay up! LOL

Jesus didn't say the system was perfect either. HAHA That was Paul!
