I disagree that income tax should be impossible under the preamble, however there was a big question of direct tax amongst the founding fathers
It was s controversial issue early on and had not been used for a quite some time after the Constitution
Fdr fucked my country up bad I want the old deal back
The one where hard work and intelligence is rewarded and everything else is allowed to take its natural course
He did set some dangerous precedents
If I choose to lay my life down and help the downtrodden that is my decision but if I am expected to sacrifice my intellect and body for the good of another they can take them both and simply consume my rotting corpse because i will die before being a slave to any man
In response to what particular scenario?
40% taxes things like that
You expect me to live under the assumption only 60% of the fruits of my labor are mine?
All I want is to live and die by my own will and capacity
If the military is ok with working Ill pay them if the cops will work ill pay them if the government wants to make roads ill pay for that ill even pay judges and other elected officials but im not gonna pay someone to do nothing sorry
I'm not asking you to
Course new deal somewhat goes along with that logic
There was some good that came out of that, but an overreaching president is bad for the long run
Course we rarely talk about Congress decades ago
The ones typically adding on to the budget and passing these omnibus bills
Both Democrats and Republicans sign off on all these wasteful programs
Asking for taxes to be spent effeceintly and carefully is definitely a high priority
Especially something that has to be considered about social programs is that we have to deal with the debt first
Almost like allowing politicians to steal people’s money and give it to others in exchange for votes is bad
And dont get me started on copyright law
Just had an interesting conversation with a factory owner I know.
It seems most of the upper middle class support Trump
He had a rather interesting success story about how he started off as a car cleaner man
The government shouldn’t regulate shit
The market can and will remove bad actors if they are not propped up by the government
Lets say copyright didn’t exist that first man movie comes out somebody films and cuts in the flag planting and bam the two products can sell on their own merits and the studio still has the first to market advantage which should be the only advantage
From what he told me, a lot of people like him find the Republican Party
He talked about it like it was an investment, rather intriguing
Everything is an investment of time and assets
I certainly don’t agree with corporate donations but speaking with him, brought me the realisation that a lot of these people were once at the bottom of society and they have grown accustomed to their newfound positions.
Yeah like hard work pays off
The upper middle class are what the left would call "class traitors"
I dont find my meaning in a class structure I am an individual and wish to be treated as such
If others do not wish to be treated as individuals thats fine but they are not gonna rope me into their bs
Well actually know that I think about it. Would a factory owner be upper middle class, or lower upper class
Depends on his income
Well he has 125 employees
So must be pretty high but not super high
