Over and over again I read about some dumb liberal whining about how the rich should pay more in taxes. What these yahoos dont get is that taxes have nothing to do with being rich or not, that is the scam the progressives want us to believe. Many of the biggest liberal losers here keep pushing this idea because they are too stupid to think for themselves. Taxes are based on income in a given period of time, not on wealth. Ex: Bob is out of work and lives with his mother. Bob strikes it rich in the lottery and wins a million dollars. Bob now has to pay taxes on a million dollar income. Giant-tech corporation has billions in assets, buildings, trucks, and inventory. Sales slump due to a slow economy and Giant-tech has a loss of income for the year, spending more than it takes in. Giant-tech would pay nothing in income tax because it had no income to report. The PROGRESSIVE income tax is designed to punish those who make money, not punish those who have money. This little tool keeps the rich insulated from hard working successful people that are climbing the socio-economic ladder. This is why so many RICH LIBERALS want taxes, the more the better because it keeps the average guy down, while keeping the poor addicted to the government programs that promote laziness.
