Except that we know the billionaires often pay nothing

It's true, the tax owed on $0 income is zero.

and usually less than 5%.

Are you talking about "True Tax"? Because that's hilarious!

I’ve informed you on this topic. Did you forget?

No, I didn't forget your ignorant whining on the topic.

Yes the old canard dumb cons use…it’s on income silly they like to say…not understanding the purposeful set up for the rich’s benefit.

Yeah, income tax only on income.

not understanding the purposeful set up for the riches benefit.

Yup, set up since 1913.
Yeah that makes it right, thinks the dumb con.

When did Venezuela nationalize its banks,

2010.
Factbox: Venezuela's nationalizations under Chavez

"In June 2010, Venezuela took over the mid-sized bank Banco Federal, citing liquidity problems and risk of fraud. The bank was closely linked to anti-government TV station Globovision.

"* In 2009, Chavez paid $1 billion for Banco de Venezuela, a division of Spanish bank Grupo Santander.

"* The government has closed a dozen small banks since November 2009 for what it said were operational irregularities.

"Some were reopened as state-run firms.

"Brokerages have also been closed and some employees jailed.

"Chavez has vowed to nationalize any bank that fails to meet government lending guidelines or is in financial trouble."

Do you see how a market with no regulations produces a few select crony-capitalists taking control of regulation-free markets?

Ahh the equivocation game! Who, besides you, is saying that a free market is regulation-free? Free markets depend on property laws at the very least, so you're shadow-boxing.

You don't seem to get what corporatism is either. So here's a link: Corporatism - Wikipedia. And a quote from said link: "Corporatism is a political ideology which advocates the organization of society by corporate groups, such as agricultural, labour, military, business, scientific, or guild associations, on the basis of their common interests."

So instead of a few people going bust, you want everyone to go bust?
