    Over and over again I read about some dumb liberal whining about how the rich should pay more in taxes. What these yahoos don’t 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.

    The problem with republicans is, they think they are going to make it rich one day. In the real world, the chances of that happening are slim.

    Your "message" makes no sense.

    Interesting POV, SuMar.

    I've pointed out in the past that much of the developing weath that the truly VERY wealthy enjoy often get isn't subject to taxation at all.

    Unrealized capital gains, for example.

    TAX FREE state municipal bonds for another.


    The ONLY way that that any of that unrealized but nevertheless very real increase in wealth every gets taxed is as a result of the inheritence tax.

    And that is the tax that the Republicans so want to completely eliminate.

    Slim? maybe. Possible? Yes.

    Hell of a lot more more possible than the liberals idea of cradle to grave entitlements.

    Not necessarily.

    The problem with the democrats is that they feel that the poor will always be poor, therefore, according to them, if they are poor everyone must be poor.

    Republicans want everyone to be rich.

    Chances would be a lot better if we all got to keep more of the money we earn.

    Do you realize that if over 45 year working lifetime that even a person who averaged only 45K a year could retire as a multi millionaire?

    All he would have to do is save the 15% of his salary that is confiscated by the government for Social Security in a privately held account and earn an average of 5% interest over that time frame.


    Sounds like striking it rich to me.

    I do think you're on to something here...especially if you look at "Republican" as a brand. I can only speak for what I see here in the South and on my travels, but there is a large group of people who are attracted to the Republican lifestyle...thinking that they can join in with the rich crowd if they just join the Republican side.

    This is kind of absurd since there are affluent Democrats too...but as a brand, the Republican party has the identity of "the rich".

    There's more to it than that obviously but that is a certain draw of the party in reality.
