Wow... I applaud your passion, but do not necessarily agree with your statements. I assume by tax cuts, you are referring to the Bush tax cuts that have passed the House and Senate. I will diverge here for a second because they were not true tax cuts when implemented because they were not followed by a decrease in spending.
Back to the focus, Why do you feel that people who make more money should pay more percentange of the money they make? Everybody has the oppurtunity to work and make money. My friend's parents who came from Croatia 50 years ago started out with a suitcase and that was it. They now own a home, car, have raised a family, etc. My other friend's father-in-law, who is of Hungarian descent, started this company, http://www.edenpure.com/
, as well as this one, http://www.ballbike.com/
. He started with nothing 15 years ago.
These people have worked hard to get where they are and I do not believe they should have to pay a higher percentage of tax because they are sucessful. It is counter-intuitive to punish someone for success. Yes, it is punishment to pay a higher percentage of your money to government, no matter how altruistic they may want you to believe they are. The goverment did not make these people wealthy. They worked hard and came up with services or products that people wanted. In fact depending on what business you go into, the goverment hinders competion to the status quo in the way of regulations, specifically telecomm.
Another thing, it is the prerogative of everyone to invest their money how they see fit. It seem that you might be saying that it is unAmerican if you don't invest your money in the stock market. I hope you are including George Soros as one of your sad f'ers. If you are not then your are not being honest with yourself.
It is sort of funny that taxation was one the things that started the whole American Experiment into motion.
the fact remains that wealthy Americans are fucking traitors for refusing to pay their fair share for the government and the infrastructure that made their wealth possible.
Back then our ancestors were tired of taxes and the crown. Yet your rhetoric would probablly be not out of place in the Empire of Brittian at that time. "the fact remains that wealthy Colonists are f'ing traitors for refusing to pay their fair share for the government, infrastructure, and war that made their wealth possible."
I guess somedays nothing changes...
