What's not to love about a guy who says things like:

"Now, the banks aren’t bad people. They’re just overwhelmed right now. They’re overwhelmed with a lot of things. One is a lot of homes coming in, that are in foreclosure or in trouble, and the other is with a massive new pile of regulations."

Someone sure has doubts in their ability. Nothing better than someone who has already convinced themselves of being a failure.

The whole 40 years they complain that it's "regulation" that is keeping them down. While in reality it's the deregulation of certain fields that has caused a lot of our problems.

It's all the regulation. What did it ever do for this country except make it great and a standout amongst the world's socioeconomic systems?

Well, speaking of failures, you be sure to pay more taxes percentagewise for the rest of your pathetic life, than this fucking mormon overlord. Now that's absurd, what's even more absurd is you actually defend him

Truly a sign of a motherfucking moron, enjoy your menial existence

Not only are you dodging my question, you're spouting nonsense about even this highly unlikely scenario. No one should withdraw all their savings at once and put it into a taxable account, that's retarded. And yes you know absolutely nothing about tax brackets, The highest rate for a single taxpayer without any deductions is around 19%.

Are you really this dense? You think it's ok to tax the super rich at a lower rate than the middle class just in case that middle class person might be lucky enough to have a couple million saved up and have a *slightly* lower tax for a couple of years after they retire? You know what would help this middle class family in your scenario more? The super rich paying the fair share of their taxes and relieving the tax burden on everyone else, and not running up the national debt, and maybe investing in some of that public infrastructure and workforce that made those super rich people rich in the first place.

Nope nothing illegal here, it's perfectly legal to be a corporate plunderer and a two-faced liar. None of this did anything to change my opinion of him, I've always known that the only person Mitt Romney cares about is Mitt Romney.

Who cares if it's an investment, it's still income. He isn't providing any important services or creating anything of value, he just sits back and collects a check. While I think the guy has obviously done well for himself and shouldn't be reviled personally for it, the fact that his rate only 14% while mine is up at 20% doesn't seem too fair given the fact that his incomce is 2125x larger than mine (yes I actually calculated it...) and the fact that he contributes next to nothing to society, he only leeches off of the hard work of others.

My dad actually said this the other night:

"Thanks to Obama there won't be any more rich people like me in the future."

I literally just started laughing out loud. Then as he was walking away looking pissed I said:

"You seriously think if we go back to the clinton tax rates there will never be any more rich people?"

he says yes and I started laughing even harder than before. then right as he walks out the door, through my laughter I said:

"yeah, cause no one made any money while clinton was in office. hahaha, you cannot be cereal." [NOTE: My dad made a shitload of money while Clinton was in office.]

He tossed me an angry dad look as he went through the door. the one that says I'm pissed but I realize I'm losing this argument so I'm gonna leave now.

Republican platform = poor people should pay more in taxes = good, wholesome, moral american policy that makes good economic sense and will make america into the perfect jesus land it was always destined to be.

Democratic platform = rich people should pay more in taxes = socialism, communism, marxism, anti-capitalist anti-americanism which will ruin american permanently and really really annoy the "job creators".

who is the tree again?
