I see we have come to the part where math suddenly gets hard.

You guys are argueing over pennies. Our military budget is the sole reason we can't do all of the nice things for our people. Our dependence on fossil fuels is basically what we are defending. Taxing the rich is great and all, but even that is chump change to compared to what we put into the military.

Change that, everybody gets what they want. In the meantime, this argument is just the same shit over and over. We can be a country or we can be an empire, we apparently can't be both. It's literally tearing what little national identity we have left in two opposite directions.


It's a combination of the two. The rich/big biz used to pay a vast amount of tax only several decades ago. From Reagan onward that all ended. Tax rates at the tippy top went from something like 85% to a mere 21%. And the bigger problem still is tax law itself. It permits for complete tax avoidance in many cases. Cases like Amazon who not only don't pay tax but get back 10s of millions a year in gov't subsidies. Or Warren Buffet paying a lower effective tax rate than his secretary. You don't need to raise taxes on the rich/big biz you just need to eliminate tax loopholes. And yes, even slashing America's military budget by 75% they'd still be spending more than anyone on the planet by wide margin. That outright waste and theft never ceases to boggle my mind.
