The Capitalists gave us nothing ..... Zero.If the ruling class paid as little tax as you did, the country would go bankrupt.
The more you earn, the more you pay, in total, and as a percentage of your earnings.
It's simply not true the rich pay less, in fact the rich pay the vast majority of all income tax.
I have a question.
Would you rather work in a world where everyone makes $24k/yr.
Or 1% make $2 Million a year, and 99% make $48k/yr.
Also the cost of goods in both worlds remains the same.
Capitalist gives us the second world, socialism can't even provide the first.
They were all totally bankrupt in 2007 and 2008.
And 10 years ago, exactly how hard did Gates and Buffet work to be made whole again?
Who worked and sweated to put all the value back into the system and to make the Ruling Class whole again?
Nobody Worked. Nobody earned a nickel. It was just printed out of thin air like a magician act does in Vegas.
It was the Common Taxpayer (and his great grand children) who came to the rescue of the economic system.
The Capitalists had polluted every banking facility in the universe with worthless paper and 600 Trillion in derivatives and another 300 Trillion in Toxic Assets.
The Capitalists have no shame at all.
