Taxing income is a ludicrius idea.

Basically the rich are stealing peoples labor, efforts and time by taxing your income and re-distributing it to people who don't contribute in an effort to maintain thier position in the social hierarchy. An income tax is an anti-business and anti-capitalistic idea.

Taxing income stiffles the economy and leads to a blackmarket underground economy.

I think a better idea is to tax the wealthy.

Tax people that already have more than they need.

Tax thier granite countertops
Tax thier designer faucet fixtures
Tax thier hardwood and tile floors
Tax the square footage of thier homes and thier 2nd and 3rd homes
Tax thier views
Tax thier mercedes, BMW's, Cadallac SUV's and thier collector cars
Tax thier boats and thier off road toys

These people are cheap. They hate you but they love themselves.

They got what they have by not valuing your time.

They stole your time.

They stole your life.

They stole your ideas.

They stole your money

They stole your government

They stole your country

And you watched it happen

They killed your children

They killed your grand-children

They enslaved us all with thier lies and deceit

Now it's time to get even

If I missed your sarcasm, I am sorry......

But I do have a question. What if the above quoted is attained through ones labors? Should they now move to the 'taxable' class?

I'm talking about inhierited wealth. These people are the enemy not people who produce. I'm sure there will be a provision to exclude wealth aquired through ones own efforts.

I'm not anti-wealth. I'm anti-greed and anti-stupidity.

My expierience has been that rich people who have not aquired thier own wealth suck.

What about those that acquire their wealth through parents that have worked for it?

You are labeling people based upon your small sampling. While I do understand what you are saying, how can you tell who is wealthy through inheritance or hard work?

Why would one work hard to pass their wealth on to their children if they know that their children will be bastardized because of it?

Coudn't agree more with this post actually. At one time I would have said lets just let them keep all their hard earned money. Some of them are hard working and deserve their capital completely. The rest (Soros included) are busy spouting off lies like, hey we can use more taxes, please tax us more, they say this as their personal accountants find every single write off possible. I read awhile back about the owner of the dodgers making 100+ million and not paying one penny in taxes. That sorta thing disgusts me. I don't agree that you should personally attack their income. But once you make so much money enact a flat tax with no loopholes.

It is a difficult and complicated question no doubt.

I have eggs in the pot myself.

There is no good answer other than, 'people that have seek to have more at the exspense of those who have none'. The greater the distance from those that have from those that have not the greater the ignorance.

What does taxing the income of those who have not accomplish?

Spoken like a true progressive. It is called stealing. If you make more money then the next guy so what the alternative is socialism and then everyone loses. Capitalism with anti-monopoly laws that are enforced is the best way.

I don't respond to many posts anymore...

Well, they are taxed at point of sale just like anything you buy, just at a magnified scale based upon price % ratio.

I pay matching SS, health insurance, etc. for my employees. Also I pay franchise fees to the State every year based on gross sales, ASCAP, taxes on all my commercial utilities, cell phones, land lines, credit card processing, capital gains, property tax, tax on my profits…. Bank, credit card processing, payroll fees, licensing fees, and liability insurance….on and on… I pay and pay. Yet I make a profit and provide for my family….

You want to tax me further? Apparently you have no idea how much it costs in the country to remain in business, keep people employed and make a living. I just finished my taxes for 2009. I am paying my hard earned money to a government that wastes.

Point the finger in the right direction. More tax on me means one less employee. Figure it out.

Subjective I agree with you wholeheartedly though you might not believe me by my earlier post. The problem is that anti trust laws don't seem to be enforced. I am a big gamer. Everything I buy is either Activision or EA. I listen to radio and everything is clear channel. These politicians are being bought off so his idea isn't a bad one considering the way this country is headed.

It just goes to show that in the end we all share some middle ground that is why respect is so important. And we used to enforce the laws before the fed took over now it is all about power and the consolidation of power.

I almost choked as I typed the words.

Here I am a capitalist talking about damn near socialism. I am just sick of rich people who see me as dirt.

It's called equity of income vrs effort.

I'm not a progressive, I'm an anarchist.

I hate everyone equally.

We need a government that provides a basic saftey net for every American. What we have currently is a feeding frenzy in a shark cage.

I hate to tell you but in Anarchy everyone loses. Only the strongest of mind and body will make it all the rest perish. Do you have any loved one's that would fit this bill. Please you seem open minded think about it. A republic ruled by law is the way to go and the founding fathers had it right we have just strayed from the path to far.

And also the TPTB have designed it this way to make us all feel like dirt so that we will beg for change. And they will give it to us. Study what happened in Germany before the rise of Hitler it might open your eyes. Hate leads to suffering and it is the path to the dark side.

What we need is to stop relying on the government to provide for us. We also need to stop supplying the government. They want us to want them.

But you have to realise one thing and it pains me to say it but it is the truth if you take away unemployment right now the country will implode. We need jobs to be created first and this should be the main goal of everyone in washington.

Yes in Anarchy everyone loses.

I take the path not lightly.



A republic ruled by law is the way to go and the founding fathers had it right we have just strayed form the path to far.


I believe in the ideals of America friend.

The colonists were willing to die for what they believed in.

Are you?

Was thier road any harder?

Did they have the king on England spying on thier every move?

He was a 2 month journey away, big brother is 2 milli-seconds away.

Did King george have mass media control or special ops?

Name one item the US Government has handled correctly.

What can the US Government do that you can not do for yourself?

If everyone loses whats the point. And times may change but certain things do not people will always thirst for freedom. Would I fight if I had to just like they had to. We are not at that level yet and may never reach it. But when a group of people suffer enough and are oppressed odds don't matter anymore. I like to live on the positive side but not to positive.

The government doesn't provide a damn thing to me.

I get to pay into the system while people who get paid use the system to harrass me to make sure that I keep paying just as long as they don't have to be the ones who pay.

Couldn't agree more. Black market calling.
