Why are liberals so angry all the time? Is it because they’re tired of paying taxes for people who are overweight, because they eat too much fast food, or people who smoke and get lung cancer, or people who drink and get liver disease? The rich don’t pay enough taxes? The top 25% pay almost 87 percent of all income tax collected. The top 5 percent pay nearly 58 percent of all income tax collected. 50 percent of Americans pay two to three percent in federal taxes the other 50 percent pay the remaining 97 to 98 percent of taxes. Yes liberals are mad because they pay to many taxes but think that we need to RAISE the taxes. Trickle down economics does work. It creates more opportunities for people to lift themselves out of poverty than any other government program ever devised. The role of government is to adjust the rates of lending to curb inflation/deflation and in times of recession (which is a natural occurring event due to lack of regular innovation) pump money into the economy to help spur innovation and prevent total economic collapse. You can not just give money to a select few and think it will work itself out. GM and Chrysler vacated to Mexico and Canada and union leaders made out like bandits. The industrial age is going out and the information age is coming in. In the future you will either work in the medical industry, technology, service industry or for the government or you will be unemployed. Unions are in their death throws and they can smell it coming like a freight train of dead skunks rolling past your doorstep. Generation X is coming of age and the world is going to be a better place because of it. I believe we were the last generation to carry the burdens of our parents and grandparents and the world has been handed to those after us and they don’t like the idea of having to put in work in order to have a better place. We can no longer afford to pass along the troubles of our elders to our children in hopes that they will be able to do better than us.
