    “How dare you not pay taxes! Only big corporations, and not-for-profits, and religious organizations, and people on food-stamps, and people with lots of deductions, and Shaniqua with 6 kids, and deferred overseas sheltered income, and fixed income elderly, and fussy Karens living off alimony GET TO DO THAT!!!”

    • TrueWOPR

      Even sadder is he did pay taxes, roughly 20% of his income in taxes amounting to an average $26,000,000 annually.

      The leftists crying just can’t read and misunderstood the $750 overage he incurred when moving a company from New York to Florida as “all he paid.”

      • TRVTH

        They can read perfectly well and they aren’t nearly as stupid as they pretend to be.

        They’re gaslighting. It’s the Big Lie. They want everyone talking about how “Bad Orange Man no pay taxes” around the water cooler in every office in this country. Truth is beside the point to them.

        Do you have a link to Trump paying 20%/26mil?

          “The Times: “Mr. Trump paid alternative minimum tax in seven years between 2000 and 2017 – a total of $24.3 million.”

          “The Times: “Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.
          He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years – largely because he lost much more money than he made.”

            Thanks! I figured he paid such a low amount in the last few years is because he only makes $1 as President and donates the rest of his salary.

        • Robert Blake

          He also paid taxes in other countries, as some of his income was earned there.

      Do you think there could be a reason that say, not-for profits, people on food stamps should have tax deductions but not Billionaires who control the majority of wealth in the country?

      • ImaMeatPopsicle

        …not when people on food stamps have the latest iPhone and 22″ dubs and the not-for-profit is leasing Class A office space at $75sq/ft.

        No, I do not, you kvetching little guurl.

  • ssgtnelson

    Just ignore that income taxes are just a small part of taxes… I’m willing to bet he paid a ton on investments and properties.

    • One of his deductions may have even been to pay for taxes!

  • TRVTH

    Since 1945, we’ve not just had endless wars–we’ve had endless wars that (((they))) quite deliberately don’t allow us to win, in order to destroy social capital.

    The 1991 Gulf War was an exception. No one expected Iraq’s military to fold up like a cheap suit. I’m sure the plan was for another humiliating and expensive decade-long war, ending with the last Americans leaving Kuwait City hanging from the skids of a Huey while Iraqi troops rolled triumphantly down the streets, Saigon 1975 style.

    • Robert Blake

      Truth. In 1990, Saddam’s military was considered the 4th most powerful on the planet, ahead of Germany and India and behind only the US, Russia, and China.

    Oy vey! don’t forget that your taxes are for funding Israel, antisemite!

    At the same time, the people trying to educate us about Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) tell us that the U.S. Government doesn’t need to tax its own dollars first before it can spend them. The country which issues its own sovereign currency faces no such constraint.

    Keep this in mind when you hear ignorant propaganda about our government or some agency like the Social Security Administration going “bankrupt.” Our government can no more run out of its own dollars than a bowling alley can run out of strikes.

    • True. But then the money becomes worth less and less each year, until you reach Zimbabwe/Weimar style inflation.

      The dollar has lost 95% of its value over the last 80 years.

      • Albionic American

        The dollar has lost 95% of its value over the last 80 years.

        Ignorant propaganda again. Our standard of living depends on what all of our dollars can buy today, not on what one dollar can buy across time. And even then, our dollars in 2020 can buy goods which didn’t even exist as ideas a century century ago, like effective generic drugs for cardiovascular problems. You can buy a month’s supply of drugs like lisinopril or atenolol for literally pocket change, and they can extend your health span by many years. The richest man in the world a century ago couldn’t have gotten a prescription for either one with his entire fortune, even if he had a room full of gold coins (“sound money”) like Scrooge McDuck.

        • Yes, we can buy more things today. But you can’t buy a loaf of bread for a nickel any more, can you?

          Inflation is a tax on savings.

        • Robert Blake

          Comparing like items, that haven’t changed at all over time (an ice cream cone, a hair cut, first class postage, a gallon of whole milk, or a gallon of gasoline), and you can still see the 95% loss.

        • get the fvck out o here you filthy piece of crap. Can’t you see nobody like you or your marxist rhetoric? go off yourself.

  • Albionic American

    Wealthy Americans also blow up the ignorant libertarian propaganda against taxation. In the real world, you consent to taxation by choosing where you live. When you renege on your agreement with the sovereign to pay taxes, he sends men with guns to enforce the contract, not to “rob” you as libertarians argue.

    Tiger Woods showed this when he moved from California to Florida. In California Tiger had to pay a fortune in state income tax, while Florida doesn’t have a state income tax. The other wealthy people who stay in California consent implicitly to the state’s tax deal, when they can always go shopping for sovereignties with better offers the way Tiger did.

    • Nikola Smolenski

      In the real world, you can not choose where you live.

      • Robert Blake

        This. The proof of that is that the US population is not 7.8 billion, like it would be if you could.

  • Albionic American

    At the same time, President Trump readily uses the socialized health care he has at his disposal. Funny how we don’t hear from our leaders that their government-provided health care sucks.

    • Industrialist Machinist

      just who do you imagine this argument works on? Do you practice these in the mirror like a IRL smuggie?
