    And yet, America still has the most progressive tax structure in the western world. Big picture, the top 20% are footing the bill for everyone else. Your premise is bullshit.

    It would only be considered redistribution if you think the money belongs to the government, and we only get it upon thier whim and command.

    You useless toad.

    There you go again! Stop talking about income and wealth as though they are finite piles of cash from which we all draw. That's ridiculous. Wealth can be created or destroyed. Just because one person makes a lot of money does not mean someone else must make less. Any chance in hell you'll get this through your thick skull? This stupid argument you and the other redistributionists are making is getting really old.

    You can explain reality to someone who lacks the mental capacity to understand it. The OP is a fucking retard, so don't even bother.

    Dear Too Stupid To Think For Themselves pubpots ...

    READ the post.

    Take special note of the word (READY? cuz, this is really a tough one),

    Okay, now stay with me cuz it gets really complicated here ...

    The word "quote" means that those words were not written by, nor did they originate with ME.

    The word "quote" means I was quoting the words of someone else.

    Additionally, I furnished you cretins with the link to where those

    came from.

    Please stop saying I said those words because I did not.

    GAWD, its gets so fucking tiresome having to explain every fucking thing to rw's who couldn't even get through grade school.

    That last part?

    THOSE were MY words.

    Quoted to prove your point equates supporting the quote.

    IOW, you would say it if anyone cared enough about your opinion to publish it
