So your envy rides the rails of argument.
Not surprised.

No one should be paying any more in taxes, as WE are ALL paying too much as is.

A flat tax would solve all of these issues.

The Progressive Tax system is what has caused all of this crap.

Really I seem to think my taxes are quite reasonable, but I'm also not an infant who wants others to pay my way. How else would general maintenance take place? I agree that the taxes need to be evened out on all fronts but the fact that people think they're paying 'too' much in taxes is insane. Taxes need to be lowered in certain areas such as fuel and certain criteria to manage that needs to be put in place. But realistically if you 'think' you pay too much in taxes you don't, and until everyone in this country, rich or poor, starts paying the fair amount we'll never get out of the hole we're in. I also am a firm believer that the people should have more power, something that also needs to change if the government continues down the same path.

Oh gee. Thanks for TELLING me what I should be thankful for and that if I believe I am paying to much, that I am wrong and should be just fine with it.

You on the 0bama economic committee?

If you want to pay more, then by all means go ahead.

Stop trying to pass this Progressive Crap deal of taxes are just right or not high enough.

I guess you will move from being infantile to not a patriot.

Not surprised.

Oh, and I am in fact taxed too much.

As 99.99999% of Americans are.

I make about 50K per year. Starting January 1, there's another $30 PER WEEK missing from my check.

We used to take the kids out to dinner once a week, because I have to work late one evening a week. We've already cut all other eating out and grocery expenses. So, we'll have to pack sack lunches for school for the kids, PLUS a sack-supper one night a week, since there's no money to get fast food...

Am I the only one who noticed this????


Well, you aren't the only one noticing this now, however, NO ONE appeared to notice what was destined to come when they decided to re-elect Mr. Obama! Don't blame me...I didn't vote for him!

Did I say I wanted to pay more? Are you thankful for your freedoms? Do you realistically think that paying 'less' is going to solve anything? Your infantile personality is quite amusing but I'd seriously like to know what type of person thinks this way... do tell.

Also do some digging my friend, the US is very low on the current list for personal tax rates, but much higher for corporate. So again you think you pay too much? I'm sure just about all of Europe would sympathize with you...
But you know that might be why you can go over a hundred on the highway because well they have the money to make a good one.

I didn't notice it because I don't pay taxes.

Am I the only one on ATS who has the cahones to stick it to an unconstitutional system?

I'm sure you don't. Do you own land or a home? Do you rent? Do you have electricity? Water? Internet connection?

Your chastising tone oozes Progressivism and is to be expected.

I could care less what Europe or any other country does. I don't think I have any say in their affairs.

YOU seem to be very comfortable in telling others what to do and feel.

My taxes don't provide for MY freedom. MY taxes, as a large percentage, goes to bloat Govt and to give others stuff because they were promised free crap.

Oh, and good highways??? Did 0bama continually pitch that OUR highways are in decay.

Progressives truly are a sight to see. Watch as the contortionist performs his act.

I'm pretty much off grid at this point and obviously I have most of those things.

I also work under the table to avoid any kind of garnishments against wages of any sort.

One must realize, that the value of taxes owed would probably never equal the value of land or a home and thus could not be legally taken as just compensation. In the same regard there is no such thing as debtors prison in the United States, so long as you are protected and your possessions are protected, nothing can come of not paying your taxes. You just have to do it carefully.

I do not believe in the direction of money in this country nor do I believe in an income tax, therefore I will not subject myself to it no matter what the "law" dictates. The law is wrong.

I agree but to say you pay 'no' taxes was clearly false, since in this country that would be nearly impossible.

I guess so you can help pay the treasury bond investors who love such overbloated and corrupt to the core government wasting money waging one war after another war on total bull# lies, to make the police look like the military, and to allow the Federal Reserve to totally crash the economy and american dream all at once with one stone.

When people are taxed without representation that is tyranny and dare I say slavery. At least in communist countries people have a roof over their head, a job and a vacation, even if they have no freedom at all. Not saying communism is ideal or even good. Its not!

I have no problem with local and state taxes. In fact property taxes is the only real tax that makes sense; pays for local police, schools, fire department, parks, libraries, road development and maintaince, garbage removal, etc.

Its not a black and white issue like democrats and republicans make it. A progressive tax rate within bounds would be ideal for federal taxes provided the federal government was not totally out of control as it is now. And the 350k wealthy line is too low, that is why I call it pseudo-redistribution scheme. Taxing upper middle class to pay for lower middle and poor people. Rich people pay # because they own the government to begin with.

history is your friend...bush and the republicans past the tax cut law with the sunset clause, do you know what a sunset clause is? it means it's THE LAW that the tax cuts end
deliberate rewriting of history making this THE OBAMA RAISING TAXES mantra ...shows me that this is another piece of crap the right gets wrong...again, and again, and again,......

Okay, I'm British. But I don't pay any direct taxation (income tax). That's one benefit of being 'poor'

Again keep it going your making yourself look fantastic, you must be the only person on the planet as well...

I hope your dull and dim existence is as fulfilling as YOU like, since that's all that matters. Have fun being in a nursing home alone and having no one at your funeral, but hey you'll always have yourself and your right hand...

I'm just happy people like yourself are becoming the minority in this country, hope that trend continues.

I agree to a point for local and state taxes. That is the way it is supposed to be.
Property tax is a HUGE load of crap. If you own your property, then why are you yearly taxed for owning it?

Sorry, but the Govt is out of control. It getting more money just leads to it wanting more money after that.

More 0bama supporters with incorrect info.

Where have I stated that 0bama raised the tax of SS?

I stated he, as a leader of the Govt, did not push to have it extended. And, that it was a raise from the past 2 years.

Just keep your head up 0bama's butt, and let others tell it like it is.

Also, who is in charge of the Federal Govt? Who controls 2/3?

Yeah, ok then. Sure sure.

It must be very nice, high up on your pedestal. Do you ever get nose bleeds from the thin air?
