America, Bad, and Bernie Sanders: 2015 CHECK HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE THE SANDERSTRUMP <p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/131067173682/daddypatriarchy-redbloodedamerica" class="tumblr_blog">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://daddypatriarchy.tumblr.com/post/131066076231">daddypatriarchy</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/131065535067">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://lunaandtrixiemod.tumblr.com/post/131062673802">lunaandtrixiemod</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://chris-the-anti-sjw.tumblr.com/post/131060573133">chris-the-anti-sjw</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://lupinerage.tumblr.com/post/131053288344">lupinerage</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/131047779822">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://lupinerage.tumblr.com/post/130996605679">lupinerage</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/129236100900">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Two one-trick ponies.</p> </blockquote> <p>Except taxing the rich the way they’re supposed to be taxed would help a whole fucking lot.</p> </blockquote> <p>What do you mean by “taxing the rich the way they’re supposed to be taxed”? How would that be exactly?  Do you know how much the “rich” are taxed today?</p> </blockquote> <p>Lemme put it to you this way: I work a near-minimum wage job at 12% income tax. This is where a  lot of Americans are these days. That tax money accounts for approximately 20% of the tax money for the US government. The other 80%? The top 1% of Americans paying an average of 20%, give or take. And yet while I struggle to pay rent, keep my car insured and running, and put food on the table, the top 1% have four houses, a dozen sports cars, private islands, yachts, and private jets, all of which they pay to own and maintain. And yet they still have more money left over than it is humanly possible to spend unless you want to buy your own country.</p> <p>So when I say “tax the rich the way they should be taxed” I mean “tax them in such a way that they’re still able to live their extravagant lifestyles but I wouldn’t have had to bury my dad because we couldn’t pay his damn hospital bills”. And if you want sources for any of this, do a quick Google search. The first three or four links should be very informative for you.</p> </blockquote> <p>Where’s that comic of Bernie sanders kicking down a sandcastle and saying “stop having a better sandcastle than me” </p> <p>I’m sorry for your current situation, I really am, but it’s not like it’s the rich’s fault</p> </blockquote> <p>Yeah but the rich have enough money that raising their taxes won’t affect them but it’ll affect the rest of the country in a positive way </p> <p>Also, trump doesn’t even need negative reasoning, he’s just a straight up asshole with no filter that will probably get us in trouble with other countries</p> </blockquote> <p>So, what’s an acceptable amount the “rich” should pay of their own earnings and what income range should be considered for that particular bracket? What, in your opinion, is “enough money” exactly?</p> </blockquote> <p>We have lost track of what is public and what is private.<br/>Natural resources are public, belonging to all the people of the countries possessing the resources. </p> <p><br/>We, the people, own the oil, gas, natural gas, coal, air, water and timber in America, not the Koch Brothers, Weyerhauser, Georgia Pacific, Chevron, Exxon, Peabody, Coca Cola or any private corporation. The private industries, under Roosevelt and Eisenhower, paid 94% tax on their income as the cost of the product owned by the american people. They kept 6% of the profit for themselves as a royalty payment for extracting our resources and selling them back to us. Rockefeller, paying 94% tax, was still the richest man in the world and a philanthropist. Our government used the taxes to provide health, education, job training, low cost home loans and retirement benefits for our citizens. The graduated income tax (those with the greatest resources and incomes paid the most, those in the lower income levels paid the least) helped America become the richest nation with the largest middle class on earth. Until..</p> <p>Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Dick Cheney and the Bushes cut the taxes on the richest among us, and the corporations they owned, to little or nothing, foisting upon us the ludicrous idea a few people, including themselves, should own our natural resources in a scheme they call “Privatization”. </p> <p>After Kissenger/Cheney’s “Endless War” scheme, Privatization became the worst of their legacy. They put the fortune in tax dollars we paid for their phony “defense contracts”, into their offshore and Swiss Bank Accounts, starving our treasury to the tune of 17 Trillion Dollars and virtually eliminating the middle class. Cheney’s company, Halliburton, profits from his term as VP and President* Cheney says “Debt Doesn’t Matter”. It Doesn’t..To him. He got the money. His intention is to foist the “debt” onto you and me. Best we forgive the debt and move on. </p> <p>What is Private? Restaurants, Grocery Stores, Hardware Stores, Resorts, Casino’s, laundries, Dry Cleaners, Liquor stores, retail outlets, auto manufacturing, etc. Anything that does not use public resources as its product. Should Jails be privately owned? No, they get all their money from the our public judicial system. Neither you, nor I, nor Corrections Corporation of America, have any right to own and operate prisons for profit. </p> <p>Should you and I be able to have our own Private armies and the weapons of war? No. Neither you, I or Blackwater/XE, has any right to own armies or the weapons of war. That is a public function. Private “war contractors”, and their “for profit” mercenary soldiers, should be eliminated forever by cancelling and never reissuing all their “contracts”. </p> <p>Our government of by and for the people,“ Democracy”, is a good thing.<br/>This co-oped government of by and for corporations, “Fascism”, is a bad thing and should be eliminated in the next budget and the 2016 election.<br/><br/>There’s a pathetic excuse in this country that hard work and merit equates success. But that simply isn’t true in a country that allow estates. Not only should we tax the rich more, we should also do away with estates and implement either a wealth cap or maximum wage. </p> </blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="224" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/28ffaef1a73efb35d950fece03d62930/tumblr_inline_nw53kky8f41r1jtxd_500.gif" data-orig-height="224" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><p>Can you do me a favor and not post your bizarre communal ownership nonsense on my posts?  Contrary to what you believe, you co-own nothing of mine, including my posts.  So, post your garbage on your own vacant blog instead of trying to hijack my blog to propagate your gibberish.  Thanks.</p></blockquote> <p>&ldquo;Not only should we tax the rich more, we should also do away with estates and implement either a wealth cap or maximum wage.&rdquo;</p><p>OK calm down there, Karl Marx.</p>
