If you want to argue that every one is free to work or not and in what condition, you keep missing the point to avoid the problem that I'm pointing out. You sound like trolling and not honestly discussing the issues. Look at any productivity vs real wages graph to hopefully learn something.

I don't ignore any body, but trolling is not allowed. I said you can Google a productivity graph. You could see how the working class do not benefit from the increasing productivity since the beginning of the 70s. Then you can search by yourself who made this possible. But I am not going to answer since your only purpose is to take the discussion off topic.

Just because someone disagrees with you and you canít find a shred of evidence supporting your claims, it doesnít make someone a troll.

I am not your google monkey. You have evidence, you provide it. Canít provide it? Maybe you are just wrong.

Meanwhile, I present you The Stagnant Working Class:

One simple fact to dispute your nonsense.

In 1900, life expectancy was in the 40s, and by now it’s over 80. Mind you that rich people were dying like flies before 40.

Somehow the working class doesn’t benefit???

Well if they get their way you won't be a millionaire after the first tax year
How long would you keep your money with a 70% tax rate ?

Also, name one thing that is NOT afforded to you by the rich people and name one thing that is provided to you by the poor.

The working class doesn’t benefit? Meanwhile they are driving the cars, taking medicines, typing on their computers and enjoying the AC, all of which are provided by the rich people.

What is nonsense is believing all was provided by the rich. What a strange rich worshipping attitude you have.

Why Should The Rich Pay MORE?


A famous bank robber, when asked why he kept robbing banks, replied, "Because that's where the money is!"

Liberals (in both parties) want "The Rich" to pay more, for the same reason.

The only difference between the liberals and the bank robber, was that the bank robber honestly admitted he was committing robbery.

Should just create two flat taxes on income.

First is 40 to 40 - Income over $40,000 is taxed at 40%. Any income made below $40,000 in a tax year is tax exempt.

Income is taxed as single or in a family highest income earner is taxed.

A capital gains tax on property over $500,000 is taxed as income at 5%.
