30 Types Of People Who Aren’t Allowed To Complain About Paying Taxes

I look at the subject of taxes differently than most Republicans. I don’t look at welfare as ‘giving’ to poor people. I see it as money that contributes to society by allowing the poor a more acceptable standard of living which makes America as a whole a better place to live.

Defending the Power Elite in America Against the Interests of the People: The Case of the United States Government

This is a special updated edition of an article that lays to bear the problems with government that have been all too evident in the “debt crisis” talks. Not only have the latest talks shown that public opinion means less and less to our federal government, but it demonstrates how the wealthy classes are the protected class in our society. They are protected from taxes to pay for what they receive from us, responsibility to protect the environment, workers and customers, and accountability for the mistakes they made to get us into this recession. Instead of laying out the debt crisis and the problems with the talks, what others have done better than I could, I have laid out what must be done to start the path toward democracy in the United States.
