From this snapshot, one can clearly see that there is strong support here for higher taxes and little support here for Ron Paul or trolls.

All in all, I'd say that is a fair appraisal. Higher taxes on the rich, and to hell with Ron Paul and the trolls.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I think if Dr. Ruth and Ron Paul got together they would make an exquisite couple. One will teach you how to fuck, while the other one will just fuck everything up.

The surest way to correct the problem of wealth accumulation is taxation.

1945-79 saw top bracket tax rates of 70-91%. During this period, the US paid down debt from 120% of GDP to just over 30%, built a nationwide infrastructure, had the longest period of growth and a booming middle class.

We need to tax the living shit out of the rich, and then tax them whatever is left over when they die. This will fund a civil society by ending the aristocracy and eliminating the plutocracy.

Spread the tax for everyone. Flat tax rate all across the board and toss the tax code. combine with with sound, smaller government. I am sick to death of people hollering to tax the rich! Take out the loopholes and exemptions, the rich will pay more taxes and so will everyone. Everyone will have a stake in government
