    Any person with a brain can easily see that the United States cannot stay on this liberal path we are on. The 50% of americans that don't pay income tax have got to be kicked off the gravy train and start teaching their children that welfare is not a good life and school is the path to a better life. Parents need to raise their children together whether they stay married or not, but education for the future starts at home, not the welfare lines.

    ">Sniffit – Stop attacking the social contract.

    contract doesn't state half work and pay taxes while half don't work and get tax money. most courts would find it unenforceable and a form of slavery."

    Wanna point to everyone to where it says that if 50% of the nation is broke or in poverty because a select few are getting isanely rich off 99% of the country's blood, sweat and tears, the destitute should still have to pay taxes? Go head. We'll wait right here for you to cook up an explanation of why someone making $10K per year and barely able to feed their family should have to pay taxes. Skin in the game? They've already been flayed, and the 1% are traipsing around like Buffalo Bill. It puts it's underpaid labor in my business or it gets the pink slip again.

    Aaaaaw, the "skin in the game" argument again? How cute!!! Yuo guys are adorable. Sorry, but half the country has already been flayed and the 1% is running around wearing it like Buffalo Bill. It puts the tax cuts in my bank account or it gets the recession again.

    First, yes it does...because you obviously don't understand why 50% of the country isn't paying taxes and is having touble feeding and educating their children or owning a home, etc. Second, the slavery analogy is patently ridiculous and astronomically offensive. Third, wanna point out to the class where it says that we should be institutionalizing an economic caste system via economic policies that grant significant advantages to the already wealthy, redistribute the wealth/income upwards and mire our political, electoral and governance systems in plutocracy?
