The problems are not that difficult to correct. I find it odd that people pine away for hte "good old days" yet they know nothing about the facts of those days. Like how high the top tax rates were. Or that we actually had tarriffs on imports. And a large percentage of the workers in this country belonged to unions. And the Republicans were the party that was in favor of these.

Considering the top earners already pay more than their fair share.

The top 1% pay almost 33% and the top 5% pay over half. Maybe if were weren't as lazy we could pay our fair share too.

So because someone isn't in the top 5% of wage earners they are lazy? Hmmm.. Thats a stretch.

Don't the top 5% benefit the most though?

In the ongoing forced Battle Royale between a president and what he sees as his all but captured USA civil society, there’s no longer any mystique behind the “Fundamental Transformation of America”. It’s becoming more clear by day that the ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ is a long-planned formula that is forcing legal civil society into a complete illegal society. A new kind of segregation has returned. Decency, law-abiding, individual, God and liberty loving are being strategically culled from humanity’s herd. Goodness is punished by Marxists in control of government and those adjectives above are how they identify “the enemy”. With all the heady power of How the West was Won now centralized in one high-handed administration, President Barack Hussein Obama is creating a new society that can be described in three little words: illegals trumping legals. It makes no difference to the regime that theirs is no different than the Politburo, other than no people are being killed off openly—yet. Obama took a 9-hour plane ride to Las Vegas yesterday at a cost of $1.6 million to unemployed Americans, all to make a speech about the new world order that now describes immigration reform: wholesale amnesty with no borders in between. You don’t have to be conservative or libertarian to be aware that virtually all things America stands for are disappearing from the landscape. With November 6 still viewable in the rearview mirror, the Second Amendment is being wiped off the books, borders are being made to disappear, the military already being gutted by massive defunding, now includes sending women to the front. Just as there is no mystique behind the Fundamental Transformation of America, there is no mystery behind Obama’s 9-hour,$1.6 million plane ride to Vegas yesterday. It was merely the best way to drive home his in-your-face,“I’m-in-the-drive r’s-seat-now-and-there’s-no-wa y-to-stop-me, point. With school children being taught songs to praise him, Hollywood stars and non-elected czars kissing his rear, the message being driven to the masses is that he’s in charge and America will no longer be America when he’s finished. Watch for his next Marxist tactics. The hedonistic couple known worldwide as Barack and Michelle will soon media-announce another holiday. Going on holiday is nothing to do with Obama’s incessant rounds of golf, hoop shooting or pretense at “all the time” Camp David skeet shooting. Since bursting onto the world stage as the “watch-them-faint” celebrity cult leader of all time, Obama’s style has been one of taunting, ever taunting. He’s cellophaned his wife and children as being more precious than yours, while pretending to be a defender of women and children. Surrounded as he is by Hollywood stars and entertainers, ostensibly enjoying life at its fullest, enabled by the ever crying-for-more Free Stuff crowd always at the command of his next finger snap, it’s hard to see down through to the foggy bottom. Think of Obama riding roughshod over Brokeback Mountain America. Everything left that still worked when he happened along is being smashed with parts that functioned scattered to the four winds. Though his traveling running dogs in the mainstream media will never portray it, Obama is exceedingly dangerous to others because he is withered at his core. He is withered by the soldiers because he’s never had the courage to be one; withered by athletes like football players, whom he can easily diminish by claiming that he’d never let his non-existent son be one. Some of his most Marxist turn-the-table-on-the-truth tricks are Obama at his heinous best. Without any salute to human nature, he likes to boast about how the Repubs are on his side. Obama likes to blame the cowardice of one John Boehner on radio talk show success Rush Limbaugh. Tauntingly he hints that it’s all over for the Republicans using an arrogant first person description about how Boehner and others like him work for “Obama”.

will the real SOA please stand up? looks as if someone may have borrowed my moniker..

While I dont completely disagree with my alter egos position.. on the top earners.. I dont believe however that the rest of the working folks arent paying their fair share due to laziness... I have some ideas on tax reform.. but thats for another time..

Besides, the issue at the center of this discussion is the constitution and the issues that are weakening it, our rights and the country as a whole.. it isnt just a one sided affair.. it is a multi-faceted issue..which include but are not limited to political agendas.. AND corporate greed, graft and corruption.. and or the issues that have been outlined in this thread..

How can you seriously accuse someone of sitting on the sideline and doing nothing when all you do it post on Topix. LOL I'm sure you're making a huge difference. SMH You are an idiot.
I am making a difference in every legal way possible... by engaging in reasonable discussion,(not just here) staying in contact with my congressional leaders at as many levels as I can (e-mails and such) and by hopefully getting people thinking and 'moving'.. there is too much at stake not too.. besides as a citizen it is ones duty to stand up and be heard..

If I or what I say can at least make an impression on people.. than I HAVE done something..

Its hard to kill an IDEA..

Now... You were saying?
