Another great point. I know an owner of a company who, if he hears about you trying to start your own company but not trying to take his business, he still FIRES YOU on the spot and refuses to give you your last paycheck. This is a perfect example of GREED and selfishness. This is AMERICA and there is enough business out there for everyone
You will all be shocked when you die and realize you're not taking it with you. You'd rather give some money to local food bank than pay proper taxes. Flat tax rate and socialized medicine works in Europe and should already be here, except we choose to remain stupid and want to put ourselves over other human beings. Shameful!
If you took all the people who where rich and stripped them of all their wealth it would not pay down the deficient or make a substantial dent. The problem lies with a run away government spending too much
MK again black and white thinking.. . It's not about extremes there's plenty of very successful countries not sure what "freedoms" here you talk about versus many others not extreme like your Cuba analogy
No one is stripping the wealthy of all their wealth. But some of their wealth could go a long way, even if it didn't pay off all the debt. We are a long way from Greece, though. A very, very long way. The best way to pay off our debt -- create a real, large, living, breathing middle class and deflate the poor class in doing so.
I wish people would stop using "This is America" as part of their arguments. There is nothing so special and different about America compared to many other developed countries that would turn such a cliche statement into a valid and self-justified argument for anything
It has been a great pleasure to see all of the comments from a variety of my fellow Americans. I urge all of you who are anti-democrats to modify your New Years' Resolutions and make it a priority to stop being ignorant!! Educate yourself on the facts and don't take a backside on the ride of negativity.
