Re: The 2% Illusion

anecdotes are evidence of nothing. because if one man can do it, it means that the rest of you cant. Obviously individual outcomes are different. I dont do research. I could care less what experts say. I know best what I see and do. I have found every where i go if you are willing to work, and mana...

Re: The 2% Illusion

see now, i get that, except its not true... You see what your doing there is called character assasination. You dont have to prove me wrong, as long as you can diminish my viewpoint by saying i'm uninformed. For the record, I lived three years of my child hood in poverty, then moved to mexico, lived...

Re: The 2% Illusion

i fear for my life disagreeing with a mod, but whatever. YES RIDICULOUS. You definitly can buy much healthier, and much cheaper food. You have to work harder for it. See, tv dinners and fruit roll ups proves a point. They arn't willing to cook their own food. Why would the be willing to work harder ...

Re: The 2% Illusion

I am not advocating for the removal of all taxes. I am demanding that our current system is to high. takes too much, and sees too little result. Personal story. spoilered for those that dont wanna get personal... As a kid growing up there wasn't a lot of money. Dad was sick and his employment ha...

Re: The 2% Illusion

yes, i agree. Lets continue on this chain of thought. If the govt stopped forcing the 'salvation of humanity', then people would suffer. And there would be a need for REAL charity. It might start opening up the minds of selfish pricks like myself. I might not be able to live with my selfish self, wh...

Re: The 2% Illusion

I say this data is inconclusive because it has no control. It doesn't even have an opposing side! We have countries with degrees of high taxes. And all of them are in ordered in a incremental status of 'perfection'. If there were a decient sampling of countries that had extremely low taxes, or concl...

Re: The 2% Illusion

This idea that a world with less taxes means poverty, worse health care, non-educated, less happy has yet to hold true. Flat-out wrong. The US has less taxes than most of Europe. It also has higher povert, worse health care, poor education, and the quality of life and satisfaction and happiness ind...

Re: The 2% Illusion

I want to know how 30%-40% of the average american's income is stupidly low. I think a better label would be stupidly high. If by "stupidly high," you mean lower than practically the entirety of Europe's by a fairly large margin , then yes, (income) taxes in the United States are "st...

Re: The 2% Illusion

I think this article is suggesting that it's unlikely President Obama will stand by his "no tax increases under 1/4 million" claim. Even throughout the campaign we heard that number drop lower and lower. We'll probably see a substantial tax increase affecting a large number of Americans. ...
