Dumb post! As a conservative republican, I'm for less taxes-not only on the 'rich', but everybody! And one of the lies that you apparently believe, is that the 'rich' doesn't pay their 'fair share'! So let's ask YOU (since you know so much) just how much money does said rich PAY in taxes? What percentage of the total of taxes collected is from said rich, and where does the money come from? How much taxes do YOU pay as a liberal? I don't mind telling you that as a republican I don't pay taxes! I don't pay taxes because I'm poor and don't have to! My family makes less than 14K / yr! No job! Because of Obama's taxes and healthcare, there won't be any jobs! Because no small businessman can afford to hire! Do I care how much Steve Jobs made?

Do I care how much Bill Gates pays in taxes? Why should I? He puts his pants on the same way I do! What he makes (or DOESN'T make) is none of my, or your business! That he pays his taxes correctly AFTER TAKING HIS LEGAL DEDUCTIONS is STILL none of our business! How the government SPENDS his taxes IS! Giving $450 million to the Muslim Brotherhood (terrorists), instead of splitting it between America's hungry children is a crime!
So don't lecture us republicans about lower taxes on the 'rich' that is wasted by government anyhow! You have no idea about the violation of the constitution, because you don't KNOW the constitution! If You and all your friends would demand that it be adhered to, get rid of all the unconstitutional departments ...

Since part of my job at the Cato Institute is to persuade skeptics to support a free society, I’m always trying to figure out how best to convince people to favor liberty over statism.

I start with the premise that most statists are misguided rather than evil and I try to understand how they see the world. If I know what makes them tick, after all, then perhaps I can explain to them how freedom is preferable to big government.

In my efforts to win people’s hearts and minds, I run into the same obstacles over and over again.
