    You call the rich freeloaders while youre standing there with your hand out screaming pay your fair share. lmao Its kind of funny in a way
    you realize that doesnt make any sense....right?

    If you pay, everyone pays.....i'm not asking for anything...and if you can find me saying that, go ahead, I challenge you. I'm saying the game is rigged.

    I must have missed the part where youre a millionaire with years of experience running a fortune 500 company. my bad yo

    I'm saying making money is making money. I didn't think it was difficult to understand.

    Unfortunately its not.
    Risking capital and earning a wage are two very different economic functions.

    Listen to anyone of his speeches man, hes constantly saying the rich have to pay their share. They already do! Its all about class warfare with him. Deflect and blame.

    the risk is when you lose money. if youre gaining it back 10-fold, then what's the problem with paying taxes? Don't get me wrong...I have investment accounts. But eventually I'm going to be taxed on it...can't really do much about that.

    It's not like anyone is taxing you when you LOSE money, lol....paying taxes is losing as it is

    Are you under the impression that capital gains income is not taxed?

    AND QUIT bringing business into it. Taxing businesses is different than taxing individuals is a completely different monster. Just because your situation doesn't fit the mold doesn't mean I'M the one lumping it all together.

    And this notion that rich folks don't pay their "fair share" in taxes. According to the Nation Taxpayers Union the richest 1% pay 37% of the taxes in this country.
    The richest 5% pay 59% of the taxes.
    The bottom 50% pay 2.25% of the taxes.

    So when one economic class is essentially responsible for such a high percentage of the taxes, there (for some strange reason) comes all this resentment from the rest that they need to pay even more.

    These folks need to take a course in economics.
