    Hey folks

    Politics is a science. It's foolish to try something just because its new. In fact most things that are tried simply because they havent are doomed to fail. Theres a reason why people didn't do them before. But we're so much smarter today, right? It'll work because we're so smart.

    I am detecting a note of condescension there.

    The prospect of having a life long career politician in office is nauseating. I fail to see a reference to a failure of this idea. I say try something new, as the status quo is not working. If you see him as lacking experience, I kindly ask you to vote for the other front runner in the primaries.

    Politics is far from being a science.

    In order for something new to work - it has to be the right thing at the right time. Something that might not have worked 50 years ago, might work now.

    --F@ck the KKK! They're just a bunch of fat slob retard hics that can't pose us or Obama any threat anyway--except for putting on some stupid demonstration in some obscure small town. They would get mowed down by any local police force and/or branch of Black Panthers (who I detest just as much as the KKK) if they ever tried anything. They definitely ARE NOT smart enough to plan and successfully carry out any sort of assassination attempt.

    The real question is Do you believe thieves should give restitution for the money they stole. To imply that the wealthiest people earned most of what they have incoming is misleading.

    Hmm

    Are you perhaps black? I don't know where you get honorable from because he has practically no crendentials in any small amount at all what so ever to be president not to mention he's a freak.

    If people actually stole money (i.e. thieves) then yes, but to imply that all wealthy people are thieves is dishonest.

    And you never answered my question: do you support the even redistribution of income?

    Yeah, how dare those people work hard, invest, and create jobs to other people? Besides, property rights are over rated. Why should people be allowed to keep the things (money/property) that they traded their time and work to aquire? Its not like there are those that work harder than others and make better decisions. Some people just have bad luck.

    I don't think it's that at all. I think it's always been a matter of the more you have the more you can afford to give. It's really a lot like tything. I don't see anybody being drug down to the poverty level because of taxes. And least we forget that much of what taxes go to helps every single person at some point... not just the poor.

    There was a time when people helped out their neighbors and their communities at the level required. If a road needed built... the community got together and built it. If someone was sick the doctor took care of it whether the family could pay or not. As time passed things changed and at the same time the country grew and spread out tremendously. Some critically important social programs had to be implemented.

    Bottom line is it's just plain math. It is not unreasonable for a person making $60,000 per year to pay $6000 in taxes and the person making $30,000 per year to pay only $3000. They make twice a much. There's twice as much income to tax. There is nothing unfair about that and often the more you make the more tax shelters you actually learn to utilize. And if you earn at the poverty level or below you shouldn't have to pay taxes... you're already in poverty.:)
