U filthy commie!!!
We created the damned government.
The filthy thing works for US; we do not work for IT.
Yes, and we - the citizens of this country - have long supported Progressive taxation. You are on the wrong side of your fellow citizens on that argument.
It does not "ALLOW" us to rise to the top;
it shoud be grovellingly grateful to us for allowing it to EXIST.
Bullshit. It protects
your rise to the top. Without our government in place you couldn't GET rich, you couldn't own anything that you didn't have right in front of you, no contract would be enforceable, no policemen exist to keep you from being killed by other people. Without government in place you are as poor as anyone else, no matter what pretensions you have about 'what you own.' The government ALLOWS you to own things bigger then what you can physically protect yourself, because it protects your assets for you.
WE Individual Citizens are the owners and creators of government;
the damned thing is our little child, our servant.
U turned the concept around BACKWARD and upside down, TKO.
1, I am not Diest TKO. You are buying into a long-standing joke, which really is quite funny
2, If the government is your servant
, then why are you still paying progressive taxes? Why isn't it doing what you want?
The truth is that the word 'servant' is not appropriate for government, because it does not accurately describe the function of government or the power structure involved.
To sum up: without our government in place, David, I could hit you in the head with a brick tomorrow and kill you. Your guns wouldn't do any good, because I'd simply sneak up behind you. I could then seize all your stuff and become 'rich' myself. And there isn't **** that you or anyone else COULD or even WOULD do about it. You ought to be down on your knees every night thanking god that government exists, to ALLOW you to enjoy the things you enjoy and PROVIDE for the defense of your greed.
Back on topic,
Can anyone tell me what our society benefits by allowing essentially unlimited wealth acquisition?
