    Too complicated for ultra, not for most folks tho.

    You just don't get it, I guess.
    I listened to a mini interview with Steve Forbes today, he said pretty much the same thing. He also said the reason the stock market is so crazy right now is because the wealthy are nervous about BO winning the election. He said that very few are willing to invest right now due to the looming tax increase.

    What does he know. He's not an economist.

    It's absolute fear of this crazy liberal! I've been selling land for over 30 years. Well over 1/2 of my business is dealing with investments and the rest consider the investment value seriously before purchasing their user-based properties. This market will falter beyond anyone's wildest dreams if "The Big O" gets elected as investors will all have a huge red target placed over their funds. His idea of capital gains treatments (or the lack of their need) is beyond devastating.

    If one man could actually ruin America, he would follow Obama's plan to the letter and use the vote of the recipients to accomplish his deed. Yeah, I'm scared. It's just more proof of our country's IQ dropping below the required minimum.

    Socialism shares the poverty, not the wealth.

    Just curious, How would all of you feel about a tax cut for the middle class, let's say between $40K and $100K with no tax increase at any level?

    This an interesting one. How would you cover that? I don't think the actual "tax cut" part is the issue, its how they're going to pay for it to justify it. My biggest problem isn't how much I pay, its how much they spend. All these assholes talk about cutting the pork and decreasing the spending. I've yet to see one asshole do that. That there is the problem. The other is once they raise it, it never goes back down. They just re-alocate that money somewhere else.

    I'm for equal taxation of everyone no matter what their income/salary is! Take wages, salary, business income, dividends, capital gains and so on without deductions and have a flat tax.
    1. If you choose to have 5 kids why should I have to pay for them by you paying less tax.
    2. If you choose to have an expensive mortage with lots of interest why should I have to pay for it by you paying less tax
    3. And the list goes on and on.

    Personal accountability and responsiblity for ones actions is the only way for everyone to be thoughtful of their decisions. We currently enable those that don't pay their fair share in sweat and sacrifice to get by because we enable them to be poor decision makers.

    The world is changing quickly and we are all becoming the minority no matter what our color is. Check this out...

    Pretty scary stuff for our kids and grandkids I'd say and we make it easy for them because we enable them to be weak by providing for them. The kids of today have come up with the idea of "do overs" when something doesn't work out for them. Geez...what happened to striking out and can't be able to wait to get back up again to tear the pitchers head off... ...we're losing the competitive spirit in this country because we've provided for everyone's weakness.

    Back to the topic: Everyone pays their fair share period and screw the progressive penalties the tax system imposes on the successful, hardworking individuals that have made this country strong.

    Very well stated! I fear nothing short of a complete citizen's revolt will wake up Washington into the understanding that "That's our Money!" not government money.
