How many hours of work a week do you demand that I devote to contributing to people's expenses?
Is money of more importance to you than the lives of your fellow human beings?
In America especially, it seems like this is an unfortunate reality. Is it your tax dollars that you are worried about? Why is it that there was very
little mention of the trillions of dollars that were allocated to rich corporate bankers who turned around and gave themselves bonuses. As if they
weren't already well off already.
Why is it that many Americans seem to show no concern over the fact that they assist in funding the worlds largest military? In fact, you spend more
than every other nation on earth combined. Yet, this fact doesn't seem to bother many of you.
However, when it comes to helping your fellow Americans who may not be able to afford health insurance, or receive adequate health care treatment, you
take to the streets in a fit of anger?
Why is it that anyone who cannot afford health insurance or may not be as well off as you are personally, is referred to as a leech or a drain on
The majority of these people bust their asses working but do not earn enough to qualify for insurance coverage. These same people all pay taxes just

Were you also aware that many wealthy Americans take advantage of all the loopholes, legal and otherwise that their attorneys/accountants inform them
Remember Obama wanted to access the names of wealthy Americans who were hiding large portions of their wealth in Swiss bank accounts so that they
could escape paying taxes like middle and lower class Americans do?
Why is there no condemnation or outrage over these issues? Why is that only the less well off financially are focused upon in your country, and looked
upon with such disdain?
Believe it or not, the lives of all citizens of a given country can be improved via taxation. It benefits everybody. It can provide a higher standard
Just look to Scandinavian countries as an example of this. We Canadians, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand are also quite well of, and quite frankly,
very few of us believe ourselves to be indentured servants of the state.
I would discuss the issue of actual freedom but that is off topic, therefore, I will stop my post here.
