One of the things listed as an objective to achieve a communist society, is a heavy graduated progressive tax were the more income a person makes, the more they get taxed. So, do you think the government is taxing people becaue they truly need the money? Do you think they're trying to redistribute the wealth? Do you think all those taxes are neccassary,or is it a ploy to just take money and dump it into many failed programs they have no intentions of improving? Yes or No and why?Answer Question

No, I do not think it's a vast, sudden conspiracy to tax Peter to pay Paul. Republicans govern 1 way (favoring Corps over the ppl) and the Dems take a different path. The country is on a new path for the first time in 8 years and changes have occurred with that turn of command. In addition, we are heavily involved in multiple wars, big businesses have moved off shore( in droves) taking away good, middle class jobs and a HUGE Corp tax base, leaving our personal economy in shambles. The poor and middle classes are suffering, as their jobs have been moved off shore or eliminated. Small business owners are being asked to pay more, and in order to make ends meet, are having to cut their payrolls. It's the domino effect. Who does the government turn to in times of need (Besides the Chinese?), those with $$$$.

Crissy personal comments are NOT facts, they are opinions. Isn't that what the question asked? I see no one here has an opinion except you and me. I never said Obama's PATH was any better than Bush's. I made a general statement about the historical direction of the 2 main parties, never assigning blame. The bandwagon folks jumped right on- Yes, they have both spent $$$, but in different ways. Again, never saying 1 was correct why the other depraved .
So do all you lovely Crissy supporters also believe that BUSH was a Communist, Marxist, Socialist. Anti-Christ Dictator? Crissy clearly does as she attached the L label to Bush. Interesting how those comments weren't bantered around prior to this year!! You speak out of both sides of your mouths depending on how the wind blows. That's biased!

Crissy, compare the economic climate in the US between 1970 and 1985. How did the Leg and Ex branches of government respond to the economic challenges that our country was experiencing at that time? Describe the American sentiment at that time. Were ppl upbeat and optimistic wrt the economy, jobs, Vietnam and finance? Outline how pork spending has changed over time?
When did our country start down the road to Communism, iyo? Why?
