    cdward… Nice try, but, well, you’ve totally bought into what the left wants you to believe. Here’s the straight dope about how the rich pay MORE than their fair share of taxes, and why people like you should follow my adivice up above.

    The rich pay for most of our taxes; they pay, percentage wise, MORE taxes that anyone else. They have become more financially successful than most people, producing paying jobs for many others, and for that so many other people, who are not as successful and who don’t create jobs that help sustain families, want to cry and whine that they should have more and more taken away from them. The bottom line is this is all based on jealousy of those who are not rich. What the rich produce in wealth is NOT the governments. The government did not earn this. In this country, we have set up the government as an arm of the masses who, instead of spending more time making their own financial houses more solvent, spend their time conjuring up how to take money from others and complaining about others’ success as if THEY were somehow entitled to it.

    Many of those who want to take more and more from the rich in a manner that’s way out of proporation than the rest of society, play the lottery, and if they won, would be the FIRST to complain about the government taking half of it…money that would have won, not earned.

    I have no money to speak of, but I’m getting sick and tired of the people in the country who expect things to be given to them. This mentality will kill this country, and this philosophy is RAMPANT in our society. I say good for those who are successful. For those that have less, work hard, and appreciate what you do have…don’t spend your time desirous of others’ possessions. Spend that time working towards what you want.
