    Unfurtunately when we've done that the aristocracy has not kept its end of the bargain, have they. Even when the people bailed them out of their own shyte with the socialism these "capitalists" begged for.

    Government should not be giving any Industry Subsidies.

    If you make our tax laws fair, NO ONE NEEDS Subsidies.
    If you make Government Accountable, we do not need DEFICITS and NATIONAL DEBT
    And if you make people accountable for their own success and failures, you do not need huge and economy crushing social safety nets.

    No matter who pays the majority of taxes in reality, you will never convince that poor person that they don't pay taxes. They are convinced, that single mother on welfare that never worked a day in her life is convinced that she pays more taxes than anyone else and is being punished by never getting a tax cut.

    No one in america gets away without paying taxes but those who can hire attorneys and lobbyists.

    Requires constant growth?...yes, it does. Jobs and investment in growth. And our (not yours?) system is the only one that can fix it. Who else has better? Russia? China? The UK? It's true that nothing lasts forever and when we do collapse, the vacuum will be filled. By what?...to say the results will be interesting is an understatement.

    I grant we've been careless with our Republic - we got fat, happy and intellectually lazy. But I wouldn't root against us just yet.

    Years ago Bush pushed through a set of tax cuts. Democrats objected that tax cuts aren’t fair because people who don’t pay taxes wouldn’t get a tax cut. I was young then. I first laughed myself silly. Then I realized there are actually living beings who found that argument persuasive. And I have not considered democrats as human beings since then.

    I don’t think it’s fine. But give the government the power to seize income and redistribute it for the poor in schange for votes and that is where it always ends up...in the hands of the ruling elites.
    When dollar hegemony ends the welfare class will starve in the streets...three generations of single mothers at a time.

    No one asked you to, just keep transferring more societal wealth to the top and hope.
