Seems someone is jealous of what Romney earns. That or you feel you are entitled to a portion of his money. So exactly what is wrong with his earning that much? I applaud him!
Are you one of those brain dead liberals that wants to dictate how much money a person can earn in a year or how much they can have in their possession? You certainly come off that way.
Someone can't understand that a person making $40,000.00 per day pays a lower tax rate than someone making $40,000.00 per year. What's wrong with your Repub math skills?

The dumber the state the more likely they are a red state. On the other hand, Obama won Florida which has only 23% college graduates.
"According to a state-by-state breakdown by the Census Bureau, here are the top 15 states with the best college completion rates as of 2010. All of them have at least 43 percent of its young residents holding a college degree, but only two states have over 50 percent. D.C., which was included in the study, beat out all of the states with an impressive 68.8 percent.
Blue - Massachusetts 54.3% of the population
Red - North Dakota 50.8% of the population
Blue - Minnesota 49.8% of the population
Blue - New York 49.6% of the population 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Jersey 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Hampshire 46.0% of the population
Blue - Connecticut 45.9% of the population
Blue - Iowa 45.5% of the population
Blue - Maryland 45.5% of the population
Blue- llinois 45.3% of the population
Blue - Virginia 44.6% of the population
Blue - Vermont 44.5% of the population
Red - Nebraska 44.2% of the population
Blue - Pennsylvania 43.9% of the population"
So out of the fifteen states with the highest percentages of college graduates, twelve voted for Obama. And as for the nonsense some have proposed about liberalism being "cyclical", republicans have gotten the majority of the white vote in every presidential race since 1964.
What's REALLY dumb is believing the government can produce an endless stream of free sh*t and there will be no consequences. The Europeans are finding out right now that that's wrong, as they sink into yet another recession.

Socialism has never worked anywhere it has been tried. But good luck patting yourself on the back and pretending you are so f*cking smart because you voted for Obama and socialism.

We are now borrowing $1.60 for everyone one dollar we take in in taxes. Even if you confiscated the entire net worth of the top wage earners we'd still be deeply in debt. We are more in debt than any society has ever been in the history of planet earth. But go ahead and fool yourself and act as if this will have a good outcome.

The liberal motto should be: Eat sh*t...millions of flies can't be wrong! Pointing to all the morons who voted for Odummy only proves that mass hysteria is indeed a problem in modern society.

And no matter how you spin Obozo's narrow victory, it was still pretty f*cking narrow. Furthermore, he's yet to actually DO anything other than promise that he'll fix it all. He won't, because you can't get blood from a turnip. He's not Harry Potter and hasn't got a magic wand. Children, idiots and liberals fall for his BS, not adults.

<quoted text>You fail to understand why Romney gives so much. According to Mormon teaching he first MUST give at least 10% to the church in order to maintain his Priesthood. Secondly, according to Mormon teaching in order to become a God in the next life you will be judged on the good you did in this life. For Mitt to give 30% to become a God is a bargain in his mind. Besides, even after 30% he still had an income of $40,000.00 PER DAY. That's average income for most per year.
Even IF all that were true, SO WHAT?

America has found out that capitalism works for about 200 years. It then becomes a society of the haves and have nots. The Elites and the peasants.
It all began with a Trickle Down idea. Since that time the top have gained 387% in income while the middle has gained 18%. The lower have lost 8%.

There was much Romney should have said, done. Oh well, can't do anything about it now, election is over, it's moot.

However, I do have to correct myself, I misquoted Pelosi's income last year, it was around $10 million, not $35. Leave it that the other numbers stand true. Obama, Biden, Pelosi combined does not equal or come close to how much Romney donates, and those 3 earn considerably more. Hell I donate more than the 3 of them combined, percentage-wise, and I earn a 1/4 of what Obama earns.

Further, want to know how Pelosi made her millions? Stocks. She sold off most everything when the new insider trading laws were set for Congress. Geee, you think maybe some illegal trading on her part? Have you noticed the millions her husband has made on stocks.$5 million on Apple stock alone. Again very interesting.

But OMG if a Republican did that, TAR AND FEATHER! If you are Democrat what she has done is perfectly acceptable, all part of the game. Typical Democrat double-standards and rules to play by.
Spot on.

Someone can't understand that a person that is educated and smart enough to make that kind of money is contributing to the economy in other ways. If you tax him at a higher rate, those other ways cease. When those other ways cease, fewer people have jobs. When fewer people have jobs fewer tax dollars are collected. When fewer tax dollars are collected, debt goes up.
As an aside, when fewer people have jobs, the need for government assistance goes up. But wait, tax contributions went down for the same reason. So, there's more need for government assistance but less tax money to cover it.
Maybe we should let rich people provide those jobs.

So how did Sam Walton ever get started in the 1960s when the top tax rate was 90%? Or anyone? How did America boom in the 1980s when the tax rate was 50% on the top? How did the 1990s create 22 million new jobs when Clinton raised the rate on the top? How can Repubs keep saying taxes kill jobs when no where in US history can that be shown or proven?

OMG, The Democrats have been trying to grab the guns all my life. 50 years, and it is a fight with every election. They restricted guns nearly away until someone took them to the Supreme court. Now there is only 2 states that restrict guns to any extent, and they are tied up in court. The Democrats have restricted every facet of our lives without firing a shot, so we may as well disarm. Just kidding. I will keep my guns.
It's amazing how blind people can be to that when they want to be. A large percentage of Democrat voters are against gun control, yet they continue to vote Democrat.

Pretty simple. Government was smaller. America didn't have half it's citizens on government assistance. The government wasn't jumping through hoops looking for ways to spend more money and drive the debt through the roof.

I have found, through observation of posts, on Topix that is EXACTLY the reason. Envy. Jealousy.

I have seen many post that there should be a limit to maximum earnings per year. Hell Obama suggested that there should be salary caps, along with an end to bonuses, perks, and parachutes. ROFLMFAO! And Obama claims to be American? And a Constitutional scholar? ROFLMFAO!

The only reason they want that is because they themselves can not reach that level in life. So they have the "If I can't have it you shouldn't have it" attitude.

Yep. Sorta like when your wife has to get up early and makes as much noise as she can so that she's not the only one sacrificing sleep? Maybe that's just my wife. Lol

Yeah, Obama the constitutional scholar. I wonder how many amendments were ratified by all 57 states?

You are one Supreme Court Justice away from losing gun rights. The Democrats have weakened Freedom of religion, unless you are muslim, and removed freedom of the press. They refuse to follow the Constitution. You are on your own.

That's a scary thought. I hope no conservative Supreme Court Justices retire or pass away within the next 50 months.

Whoís to blame? If you chose to sit on your lazy tail and donít put forth the effort to succeed then the blame rests on your shoulders.

I grew up in a lower middle class home. We didnít have the extra money to spend on luxuries. My parents didnít have the money to buy my first car or pay for my education. I got my first job at 12 delivering newspapers and have been working since. I bought my first car, I paid for my education and everything else along the way.

Screw the poor, most are poor by choice.

I posted a link to all the different tax rates for the past 100 years. Did you bother to read? Even the poor used to pay federal income tax. When I was a teen working I had to pay even though I didnít make much. If I recall it was $2.10 per hour and they still kept most of what I paid in. Today, by the time I was done with deductions I would have been owed money.
