I wasn't saying he broke the law or did anything illegal.

Especially when you are talking about the very richest among us.

There is also the issue of the lost tax revenue when management fees are funneled through investments to make them look like capital gains. It is a way of juking the system out of paying your share.

I agree you mostly. I think it depends on what your definition of "fair" means. Fair as in "same tax rate for everyone, except a group that we hate" or same for everyone. I believe in same flat tax rate for everyone.

A flat tax isn't fair. The tax code has to be progressive, and to that effect the problems with the current tax code exist in the work-arounds and loopholes.

Ah, so you're a Libertarian, not a Republican. Republicans aren't even crazy enough to endorse flat tax.

I always wondered why it's legal to display the flag of the traitors (that we ass-whupped) of the Confederacy.

Can we skip the next two decades, have our divide already and let the south learn it's subsidized by the liberal/educated North? And then let them have their theocracy?

Who is the craziest Southern Governor right now? Which one do you think would mention in a public speech seceding from "Obama's Socialism" first? I can't wait.
