"As president I will _____________" Fill in the blank with whatever.
Each time someone says this on the POTUS campaign trail .. you know it won't happen.


BTW .. EXCELLENT THREAD!!

It'll probably end up being the longest thread ATS has ever had!


I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE! But it's the fact that its not a negative or a doom n gloom thread that makes it so special

Looks like you combined half of a Bush-ism with some lyrics from The Who, friend! Nice!

Lima-1, out.

"Everyone needs to pay their Fair Share" ??????????

Well what is it? They will never tell what is enough any person should pay in taxes, they say the rich who invest in corporations to build businesses and the rich who own facilities that employ employees should pay their fair share, but no one knows what that fair share is. So what is it? Is is 30% 40% 50% 90%, what is it?

And why shouldnt everyone across the board pay their fair share? People at or below the poverty line are not paying taxes, after they get their tax refund checks, even welfare people get these now too, the amount of money they get back from the government is drastically more than they ever paid in by payroll deductions etc.

Then they confuse the argument by including famous rich who do not work 9-5 jobs punching a time clock, they invest millions at a time to earn back millions over the long run, and usually pay about 15% of earnings, the media goes crazy after them, but not explaining to the stupid viewers the money they earn back on investments is not absolute, they could lose it all and get nothing back. But all the stupid viewers who are on the time clocks are guaranteed their salary no matter if the company is earning a profit for that week or not.

My conclusion is that the only Fair Share is the Fair Tax. No more payroll deductions from anyone punching a time clock, no more net vs gross pay, your entire gross pay is what you take to the bank. And the investors stay right where they are at 15%. Then the entire taxes for the nation is exactly the sales tax of whereever everyone happens to shop. walmart shoppers pay walmart type taxes, the rich pay rich luxury taxes where they shop. And everyone gets paid to them from the government the yearly amount they would pay out for food clothing etc, by the Pre-tax adjustment of the Fair Tax. And the IRS gets abolished, gutted to the core, they would never be able to audit any individual except for criminal proceedings, and all of the 16,000 IRS Agents who have been hired to enforce the Obama-Care mandate will be out of work there, looking for other employment without harassing citizens.

So before you rant and ravers take this comment by me apart piece by piece with all your infinite knowledge, answer this one basic question in one sentence please.

WHAT IS A PERSONS FAIR SHARE THEY SHOULD PAY! AT WHAT POINT DOES IT END! WHEN IS IT EVER ENOUGH!

I actually think that is a good one, which part of it would you disagree with?

You guys gotta stop picking on Bush. Either he isn't that smart to lie well or he really doesn't like to lie. His mess ups are really easy to see, I don't think that's bad, at least we could tell when he was telling a fib. I actually kind of like Bush, he'd fit right in at deer camp. Wouldn't want to have his vice president at camp though, enough people get hurt in the woods already.
