Then he should vote for McCain as he will reduce taxes for the rich far more than Obama eventually will ( mark my words; reduce here and give back
even more there) thus making the vast majority poorer and providing the rich with ever more reason and means to leave the country when all those poor
angry folk start getting agitated about having been ripped of so.
He makes a decent living but makes enough to be a source target for his wealth redistribution BS.
You consider 200 000 a year only a decent living? Do you understand that only a very small fraction of Americans earn that sort of income and that
they are by world standards considered to to be well in the the wealthiest 0.25 % in the world? I mean that may be decent for some but for most its
quite a indecent amount.
It makes me sick to think that he will be taxed even MORE because he actually went to school and made something of himself, unlike the other
deadbeats in his family.
Yeah! It's a shame how these rich guys keep getting richer despite the supposedly 'massive' tax burden on their backs. Maybe we can increase their
taxes and stop the moment when the the gap between the American middle class and wealthy starts decreasing? Are these guys just working more and more
hours per day to get so much wealthier? What exactly are they doing that is so deserving of so much wealth?
Your comment about how that guy should just "sell more cars"makes me sick.
Especially considering how the vast majority of people on the planet doesn't have cars.
What does the average American drive and how many cars are
there per family? What is the average value and model date's? Maybe we should compare so you can see that most of those who have cars actually needs
them for lack of the public transportation that some more taxation of the rich could have ensured?
He earned his money and "toys".
That depends on what you mean by 'earned'. Lets say that it was all above board, based on a moral code that wont make too many cringe and generally
towards a productive end, would that necessitate him receiving such a high financial reward to afford toys while others in America struggles for basic
survival? Is affording toys what inspires his production of 'wealth' and if so why? Why should we not make it harder for those few in society that
are so greedy that they must have more than they even know what to do with? Why shouldn't we have a tax system that milks those ( for the public
good; public transportation, schools, universities, renewable energy) who don't have anything to do other than make more and more money?
Why should he now be forced to sell the rewards of his hard labor?
Because mostly those who earn the most work less and certainly less strenuously with knowledge and skills that those who receives the least could
easily duplicate if given the same level of education and social backgrounds. Why keep on rewarding those who have benefited by the system at the
expense of those who haven't gotten anywhere near the same level of help in the first place?
Are you willing to give up your big-screen TV, Nintendo Wii, and internet to help pay your taxes?
Those are all things you can afford on a far, far smaller salary. To suggest that Obama is even pretending to cut taxes on the lower middle class (
who can afford those things) is very ill informed. His record speaks volumes as to who he is going to help.
I have read enough and understand enough to support my personal view of Obama as a maxist.
Then you should take reading lessons or read books actually written by Marx. When someone tells you they know something about Marx or Marxist they
will be wrong 99% of the time. I fall into that 1% who may actually offer something Marx would not strenuously object to.
I actually paid attention in history class and am horrified to hear the same s#%& coming from his mouth as Lenin. F#$^ Obama and his
Then your history teacher believed taught from a book that hopelessly misrepresented history; not altogether surprising given how corporate capitalist
wrote just about all the books on Marx.
For extra credit look how "great" Chicago and Illinois as a whole are doing; fiscal, crime-rate and gun-murder wise.
Obama is an EMPTY SUIT.
At least we can agree that a vote for Obama is not a vote for anything other than a slightly slower destruction of the American society in general
than Mccain is suggesting.
I've had enough socialism this past year to fill me for my life already..oh, and for the record,
They say repetition is the basis of all learning so working on that basis i must insist that 99% of things said about socialist and or socialism in
the MSM, in books, or by politicians is either plainly wrong or misrepresentations.
I DON'T like McCain.
Yes and who on Earth does? I mean doesn't it give you a clue about just how bad McCain is that a still rather deeply racist society is about to vote
a coloured man into office based on their deep mistrust of everything the GOP and it's generally white old men represents? If the democrats were not
trying to lose this election by all means possible ( yes, they are) they would have chosen a young white guy ( Clinton, anyone) and won by fifteen or
more points instead of 5 to 10.
This is the type of election even some African countries would be embarra sed by.
