    What if the left wing, Obama and OWS got their preferred laws passed. Ones which would tax at a much higher rate the rich, and that reallocated wealth from rich individuals and companies to...well, not sure where, but just not to them.

    But what if the 1%, which would be 3,000,000 Americans, simply said "NO, we will not cooperate with that." If they simply refused to pay the higher taxes. If they refused to comply with those laws. If they just said "We already pay a higher rate than others. We pay more total dollars than others. We will not comply with this."

    What then? Would we "round up" 3,000,000 Americans and imprison them? We've been told thats impossible to do, since we have no way to "round up" that many people, right?

    Left wingers, what would you propose we do if the rich refuse to cooperate????????

    C'mon left wingers. Help me here. We can pass these laws you guys are protesting over and demanding we have.

    But what if the 3,000,000 Americans we are gonna target simply say "NO, I wont comply with that."?????????

    You are presenting a nonfactual hypothetical, so what kind of answer are you expecting?

    Any rich person who refused to pay taxes would of course be treated exactly the way rich people who refuse to pay their taxes are treated now. The idea that three million would risk prison sentences to do that is nonsensical; these are people with a lot to lose, and who are (mostly) in the habit of obeying the law (they get politicians to write the laws to their design, so that's generally not a problem).

    By the way, it's not three million. That would be one percent of the entire population of all ages. It's more like one to one and a half million.

    As is almost always the case, your dogmatic premise is flawed: Obama and ‘the left’ (whatever that’s supposed to be) have noting to do with OWS, no matter how many times the right lies about it, it doesn’t make it true.

    But OWS said it's 99% vs 1%. Thus, 1% of 300 million equals 3 million.

    So you are saying those resources would be taken by threat of violence for non-cooperation?

    Then why are the Democrats, the liberals and Obama all supporting OWS?

    So? Do you guys actually go to the source to find out info? Go to their Facebook page, they say all over it that they don't want the democrats or republicans hijacking their movement.

    Why is it stupid?

    OWS and the whining lefties are all demanding these new wonderful laws. But what if we refuse? It's not unheard of for a large group of people to simply refuse to abide by new laws.

    What next? Remember, there was a time when a left wing US president ordered the confiscation of all privately owned gold. That same left winger ordered the imprisonment of thousands of Americans based ONLY on their race/ethnicity (German or Japanese) and put into concentration camps on US soil.

    So what if Obama gets the OWS's demands into law, that says we must forfeit anything over a capped amount of earnings. And we simply say "No."
