    "This idea that a few wealthy people -- the 'producers' -- hand everything down to the rest of us -- 'the parasites' -- is fundamentally at odds with the concept of democracy.

    "In a democracy we all have an equal voice and an equal stake in how our society and our economy does.

    "We do not 'depend' on the good graces of a favored few for our livelihoods.

    "We all are supposed to have an equal opportunity, and equal rights. And there are things we are all entitled to -- 'entitlements' -- that we get just because we were born here. But we all share in the responsibility to cover the costs of democracy --"

    Rich parasites don't create jobs.
    Demand creates jobs.


    "If you ask around you will find that every business tries to employ the right number of people to meet the demand. Any business owner or manager will tell you that they hire based on need, not on how much they have in the bank...

    "Taxes make absolutely no difference in the hiring equation."

    Democracy = Majority

    The Majority of Americans want a good job.

    That's true, but Democracy is a colossal swindle, so that's not a good argument in favor of democracy.

    Even the morons and the parasites have an equal voice. That's the fundamental flaw of democracy.

    Right, so you don't want to tax the rich? What have you been smoking?

    God, where did you get this hokum? Where did you learn you are entitled to anything simply because of the fact of your birth? What you've posted is the moral code of the parasite, the tic on the ass of society who thinks he's entitled to what others produce and that they have some obligation to provide him with everything he wants.

    That's true, because most people who become rich did so by producing goods and services that people want. Parasites work for the government and produce nothing that anyone would pay for voluntarily. That's why the government extracts it from your hide at gunpoint.

    And that proves exactly what?

    That's what you get for "asking around." Perhaps if you actually knew anyone who owned a businesses, you wouldn't post such idiot theories.

    Do you think the majority of Americans see how ridiculous it is to associate taxes with hiring?

    Did you even bother to read my link?

    "I used to own a business and have been in senior positions at other businesses, and I know many others who have started and operated businesses of all sizes.

    "I can tell you from direct experience that I tried very hard to employ the right number of people. What I mean by this is that when there were lots of customers I would add people to meet the demand. And when demand slacked off I had to let people go."

    Notice the quotation marks?
    Know what they mean?
    Did the government teach you to read?
    Were you taught at gunpoint?

    Do you ever tire of proving your ignorance and idiocy?

    Icons are fucking childish

    "A democracy is supposed have a progressive tax structure that is in proportion to the means to pay.

    "We do this because those who get more from the system do so because the democratic system offers them that ability.

    "Their wealth is because of our system and therefore they owe back to the system in proportion.

    "(Plus, history has taught the lesson that great wealth opposes democracy, so democracy must oppose the accumulation of great, disproportional wealth. In other words, part of the contract of living in a democracy is your obligation to protect the democracy and high taxes at the top is one of those protections.)"

    Some Democrat owns a business, so we're all supposed to prostrate ourselves before him and worship everything he says?

    This is the typical liberal appeal to bogus authorities.

    Who ever believed that businesses don't try to hire the right number of people? That's a straw man argument. Taxation affects the number of customers who have enough money to buy the products a business sells. It also affects the amount of money a business has available to fund expansion.

    ROFL! The biggest nitwit in the forum is calling someone else stupid?

    Some Democrat who used to own a business made the claim "taxes make absolutely no difference in the hiring equation."

    Care to refute it?

    Taxation does not affect the number of customers with enough money to buy products nearly as much as employment does. Only the Soviet Union in the last decade of its existence lost more jobs than the US did between 2000 -2010.

    In a consumer driven economy designed to serve people NOT profits, "regular people coming through the door with money in their pockets is what keeps everything going..."

    "When all the money goes to a few at the top everything breaks down. Taxing people at the top and reinvesting money into the democratic society is fundamental to keeping things going."
