Let's ask all the rich people who hide money in the Cayman islands what they can do for their country.

Let's ask all the corporations that don't pay taxes what they can do for their country.

Let's ask all the politicians who suck corporate dick for handouts what they can do for their country.

Let's ask the media that regurgitates press releases instead of doing investigative reporting what they can do for their country.

Any of those 400 have paid more in taxes in one year than you will pay in a lifetime. Let's look at it as a dollar figure as opposed to a percentage and your contribution is a pittance to the treasury compared to any 1 percenter.

[-] 6 points by beautifulworld (20500) 2 years ago

Why do you defend the richest 400? What's in it for you? Do you not care about the position this country is in right now with 1 in 7 on food stamps, 22% of American children living in poverty, one-half of all Americans earning less than a meager $26,000 per year, etc. etc.? Corporate profits are at an all time high. CEO's, that 30 years ago earned around 40 times the wage of the average worker, today earn 343 times the wage of the average worker. Six members of the Walton family of Wal-Mart own wealth that equals the wealth of the bottom 30% of all Americans. Do you think that kind of income disparity is healthy for any of us?

It comes down to two things. Raise taxes or share the profits. One or the other.

Thanks for the dense article, dear, just as I was about to sign off and take a nap. Laffer could use some work with his prose. He's difficult to understand, at least for me. Anyway, I agree with him about the gold standard and fractional reserve banking. Taxes, I'm not so sure. Also, I don't see why we need to be the superpower. I don't care about being a superpower. I want to live in a country where everyone is doing well.

I'm much more interested in the profits of corporations being shared with the workers than I am in taxing anyone, although I do think the capital gains rate should be the same as the earned income rate. It is work like any other work to call your broker, trade, explore stocks, whatever it is you people do.

I'd personally rather see all of the corporate profits shared more fairly with the workers. I'd like for labor to be valued in a way that makes more sense for humanity and for the economic system to work for the people and not vice versa. That, to me, is more important than the tax issue.

[-] -1 points by Galt01 (55) 2 years ago

whats fair to the worker is they get paid what they agreed to work for when they accepted the offer of employment.

Some companies like mine give out bonus stock options, money to your 401K etc during good years. You dont need to transform the world to accomplish this lol

By your argument, if John Paulson ($4.9 billion earnings in 2010) paid a single penny more than you or me in taxes, that would be perfectly fine.

Looking at it on a dollar basis is absurd unless the values are the same. If we both earn the same amount, we should both pay the same amount of tax. But if we earn vastly different amounts, the only possible way to compare them is proportionally - by percentage paid.

It's funny how you make the vague reference to the Nazi's in your foolish little post, I guess you know that was a socialist movement....with all the accouterments of the modern socialists:

Free healthcare, changes in the education system to emphasize their opinions, insuring a minimum living standard, the urging of the government to use "programs" to help the needy, instead of encouraging citizens into doing it through direct charity, progressive environmentalism, animal rights, and state support of illegitimacy....

The just used the Jews as their "bankers" and "money changers"

Don't think that this modern incarnation of collectivism as supported by those involved in OWS is something new, or something warm and fuzzy....the anger of posters like yourself, Nucleus, zendog, modestcapitalist and many others is similar to the anger you see in the Nazi propaganda from the 30's and 40's......

I have read many books........your ignorance of the components of the National Socialist movement, the changes that led to the end of the Weimar Republic, the assumption of the Third Reich into power, and the principles which were at the forefront of the National Socialist Ideology demonstrate YOUR need to read a few books....

and you demonstrate the anger I spoke about in the comment before....those of you who are in support of such movements have to pretend they mean something more than the tyrannical force of others, with the potential of up to, and including, death and destruction to gain control and power over others....

any credible world history book can demonstrate the outcome of ALL popular collectivist movements throughout history, and also demonstrate the lack of ANY useful or improved development or advancement of the human condition...they instead tend to be regressive, equalizing and spreading misery, rather than expanding happiness....

[+] -5 points by slammersworldisback (-217) 2 years ago

the Nazi's were not pure Fascists, hardly "fascist" at all beyond the nationalism......and to claim so is foolish and ignorant..

The Nazi Party "State" was the centralized control, there was no corporatist element to that...business did not run or influence the government, the government controlled businesses and used them, by force, for its own purposes, and it pursued a radical ideology that punished those who's idea's were in conflict with those held by the collective, it sought more control over the lives of citizens by providing for their "needs" in exchange for absolute submission to the rule of the central power....

That providing for "needs" and punishment of those who disagree, first by confiscation, then by more unforgiving means, is exactly what you are advocating...and that is the beginning of all such movements that become the likes of the Third Reich, or Stalin's USSR, or Mao's China...and on and on....

Certainly there is more to the discussion, but the basic components are the same in the modern socialist movement as in ALL historic centralized tyrannies....it is a shame that you are too blinded by your beliefs to see that....

[+] -6 points by shadz66 (17978) 2 years ago

'sc@mmer' : Re. your abject twaddle above, please consider that the extreme degree to which Hitler and Nazi Ideology abhorred and detested Marxism, Communism, Socialists and the erstwhile USSR is so well evidenced as to make any attempts to equate 'Nazism' with 'Socialism' almost comical, ahistorical and 'illiterate' !

Nazism was a race based ideology reliant on notions, fallacies, concepts and conceits such as Germanic / 'Aryan' Racial Supremacy ; "Blut und Eisen" ; "Der Heimat" ; "Lebensraum" and Extreme Militarism & Racism !!

Thus, please consider and reflect that trying to associate Communism, 'Lefist Idealism', Marxism, 'Fabian Universalism' and Egalitarian Socialism with the Utterly Abhorrent Racist Nazi Ideology is most unbecoming and only really reflects upon the accuser !

ad iudicium ...

[-] 0 points by slammersworldisback (-217) 2 years ago

no, in your little mind you must separate them, so as not to have to face the fact that ALL collectivist systems must rule by force, and that the force may begin benignly as simple angry "Disagreement" or "Dismissal" of counter idea's, but eventually and always leads to the elimination of those who hold counter idea's.......

Your inability to see that is a component of your ideological suppression....the same sort of suppression that has allowed people to do the most abominable things to their fellow human beings......and it's always because of the behavior or idea's of the "other" person, and reflective on their behavior or idea's......in order to diminish their existence to a sub-human level...

We can’t blame all this stuff on God.

The world is doing what the world does. Always has.

And, if any individual country goes belly up, the kingdom of God does not suffer loss.

Rome floundered, no loss to the kingdom of God. Mayan & Aztec civilizations perished, Christ’s kingdom managed to get along. The British empire, the Third Reich, The Confederate States Of America–all gone.

While I love America, vote in every election, display our flag, pray for our nation–if America falls this afternoon due to foreign forces or even if we fall from internal corruption–so what?

Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, He will not be harmed by the crumbling of just another petty earthly fiefdom. I’ll be sorry to see us go. But there’s more to His kingdom than you or me.

On the morning of December 29, 1890, the soldiers entered the camp demanding all the Indian firearms be relinquished. A medicine man named Yellow Bird advocated resistance claiming the Ghost Shirts would protect them.

“If the Indians wore the sacred garments of the Messiah-Ghost shirts painted with magic symbols-no harm could come to them” (Brown 408).

The Sioux of the 1890 dance were the only ones who believed that the ghost shirts were bullet proof. Unfortunately, they were soon proved wrong.

Thank you!

It's pretty simple for us fair-minded people to understand what you said, but all you have to do is read some of the comments here to realize that we're not dealing with rational individuals.

Those hateful people that would argue your point probably wear or have worn their own brand of points...on their heads, (along with matching sheets-or they were taught by those that did). NO KIDDING!

It's ALMOST not there fault though. Insanity is crazy and very difficult to recognize while roaming the halls of the asylum. All we can do is continue to raise the issues and stay involved. Time is on our side and karma always has its way!

The fear and anger demonstrated by people like Lara is the only way they really have to lash out at the fact that they are no longer the majority. We SHOULD be sympathetic I suppose, but why? Her hurtful and insensitive comment below should help us all to recognize just how hypocritical folks that harbor that much hate can truly be.

The following is what SHE thinks is a blessing as she spouts: "god bless america"...(truly AMAZING that she sees no harm in it)

It's NICE that your grandparents live in a trailer park with no land to speak of while she boasts of owning a condo as a LEGAL citizen in a country your family has lived in for centuries! What is that?! Her version of love I guess.

No, you miss the point of history, unfortunately.....the aboriginal peoples of nearly ALL lands in the worlds were evolved out of power, and sometimes existence, they were conquered, or died of diseases, or were assimilated into new groups....

No land is owned except by force....an idea that you sissy collectivist libtards will protest, but...it is historical fact, unless you can defend "your" land(s) it won't remain yours.....see, we (As in the USA) created an environment where, within our protected borders, people are relatively free from forceful, or violent, removal from their property.....

You can call it "hogged" if you like, but the truth of the matter is something was exchanged for the ownership of property, it wasn't just assigned.....if you want more out of life than the trailer park, then DO something worthy of a high exchange rate...or suffer for not doing it....

Well, the "you" may actually be a generalization, but i wouldn't ask God to bless a business, church or country. Maybe my family and only if really needed. I wouldn't bother God asking this or that, but i do appreciate the good things that happen to me. I mean, you like when someone keeps asking you for help all the times? I'd rather see someone actually working for it rather than asking all the time. I don't like beggars, i don't think God does. If i know my country will suffer an earthquake, then i'd surely ask for blessings. So, right now, America isn't facing a humanly impossible situation, therefore, no need to ask for divine help.

That is not very likely. I've been engaged in revolt of the social construct for quite some time - and only articulated a case for revolt in 2009.

Here we are. On the cusp of revolution.

The repelican party has lied - repeatedly - reganonomics is a failure, blue dress stains do not trump issues of national security like terrorism, and Global Warming is here.

Holding up the budget debate with brinkmanship, creating market uncertainty that drove jobs and market numbers down six weeks into that debate, and all for the purpose of political gain - these are all issues of very serious national concern. We cannot keep kicking the can down the road when it comes to our national debt - and we cannot balance the budget on the backs of middle class America.

Repelican policy of economic deregulation has brought us to the brink of economic collapse.

It is inevitable, given both the sum of the lies and the sweeping policy failures - the people will vote these repelican fools out of office.

It's just a matter of time.

It's also a matter of national security.
