Very well said I am also in the top 2% and they have no right to steal my money through both income tax and estate tax.

I agree. A good reason we need a single rate. They would not be so eager to raise it.

I don't care what the majority voted to do, they don't have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it.

And I'm in the same boat. What can we do about it? Not a damn thing I can think of until the riots begin when the freebies get cut off. Our so call conservatives in Government are lazy and scared to death to do what is necessary. The Country has not got the picture of what it has done, but you just wait a few months. Hell will break out.

You tell me, what's fair about that when medieval serfs pay 25%, I'm paying half? I don't care what the majority voted to do, they don't have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it.

I agree but how do we stop them from doing it? Ballots didn't work. What's next? Bullets?

Damn straight, Peter! The Eighth Commandment doesn't provide an exemption for theft based on a vote.

Move to a non state income place such as Texas or Florida. Keep more of your money. Shouldnt have to be that way, but 60 million Amerikans have the government thinking for them since they obviously dont have the mental capacities to do so themselves.

I’m not close to the top 2%, and I still recognize the absolute idiocy (and clear unfairness) of it.

We’re a democracy now. Which means mob rules.

I oppose higher tax rates on the “rich” precisely BECAUSE of the adverse affect it will have on the poor.

The “rich” happen to have a function in the private sector, and that of course is to put excess capital at risk. Without having altruistic motives, the “rich” function as benefactors to the poor, because they are our employers and our investors.

Extracting money through taxes from the “rich” causes layoffs (harms the poor), and increased prices on everything, every product and every service, that these “rich” employers provide. This also harms the poor.

In short, the poor will pay disproportionately for the increased taxes on the “rich”.

This is the way we should be articulating our opposition to taxes on the “rich”.

If the media could do such a number on Romney over his innocuous, 47% comment, this guy is gonna get held up for absolute slaughter.

I’m not in the top 2% — far from it, in fact, and I don’t support raising their taxes.

We need to force the media to stop using % , and rich as definers.

Make them use actual numbers.

I’d wager that most americans would not consider $250,000 as Rich.

They probably think “rich” is a multi - millionaire

As far as I am concerned, voting for those who promise to “soak the rich” ought to be cause for disenfranchising a person.

There is no revenue problem. There is a massive SPENDING problem. The gov’t can confiscate everyone’s income, savings, assets, and wealth today and the gov’t will STILL be in debt. It’s beyond ridiculous.

The ancient saying is not "Majority Rights" or "Majority Ethics" or "Majority Morals.

Correctly it is "Majority Rules"!!!

Centuries ago a philosopher wrote "democracy cannot succeed because as soon as the populace learns that it can vote itself money it will begin to collapse.

This is one of the reasons that we are NOT a democracy, we are a "Representative Republic". The politicians were to be the "adults" in our society.

Regretfully, this concept has been deteriorating for decades and has finally reached its "cliff".

You voted for a socialist/fascist to run the show, so now the normal rules do not apply anymore. Now, you have to do what the new ruler/government tells you to do, at the point of a gun, or worse. Ain’t socialism/fascism wonderful! But only as long as you stay in the dictator’s good graces though.

Don’t understand why the feds don’t go to a flat tax system.they would take in more monay with it.
The extortion tax system we now have is a failing system.

They don't need a right to take your money my friend. Remember, all political power comes from the barrel of a gun. That applies to the government as well as the citizen.

We have failed to keep the Republic and now, we have a Democracy. And, yes, Mr. Schiff, they can vote to take your money.

This is why, until the 1930s, US military fields manuals described Democracy as a bad thing - mob rule or anarchy. What changed? We elected FDR...
