  1. God save us....

    That's a long list of purposes that does not mention income or wealth taxes. It is also curious that the federal government accomplished those purposes for almost 100 years before it started taxing income.

    I disagree that that is the point of government, especially the federal government, whose powers were meant to be limited.

    It it would be better if the government confiscated that wealth so that the politicians, in their infinite wisdom, could decide who should get that money.

    But their goal should be to provide free stuff to America's poor. Amazon has grown enough. Am I doing this right?

    Unmasking process?

  7. God save us....

    From the link below, the data from 2015 shows that we already have 1/2 of the country paying no income tax and the "wealthy" top 5% (those making over $200k annually) paying almost 60% of all of the federal income tax bill. But, yeah, the system is not fair. That should be closer to 100% I guess. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/10/06/a-closer-look-at-who-does-and-doesnt-pay-u-s-income-tax/

    Of course all that "free stuff" goes away with my 3 part plan. 1. Abolish the federal income tax system. 2. Implement a federal consumption tax (which can be a lesser rate, even as much as 0%, for "essentials" to appease the regressive tax arguments) 3. Cut federal spending...by a lot...for everything...especially the defense budget. To your other argument, I don't give two craps that CEO's for mega-corporations make more than others. Bezos manages a company that provides services to most of the country and employs hundreds of thousands of people. Should he make more money than me? Yes. Should he make more money than the CEO of a company that employs a few thousand people? Yes. Should he make more than the guy who served me a breakfast burrito yesterday? Yes. Do I care that he's wealthy? No, I appreciate that our country has a system in place that rewards the trailblazers who can grow something from nothing.

    If you implement the tax rates some dems would want to pay for all their free stuff, then yes. Most managers would see no value in striving for that pay raise. Put another way, there would have been. Due to my salary, there would have been little to no incentive for my wife to start her company which now has a payroll of 35 people.
  10. God save us....

    Ugh. Obama missed votes. So what. Can't we get back to debating how giving people a living wage, free college, housing, health care, and food won't stifle their desire to work?
