    He's my hero then. What if we all refused to pay our taxes at the same time?

    I guess that's good for people who actually pay attention to be concerned.
    I have a relative, very bright person, who has been driving me crazy. He supports Obama. I think this redistribute wealth thing has gotten to him. Now I heard he's wavering.

    Joe the Plumber ought to have a cabinet post to bring some common sense to their cabinet meetings. Yay Joe!

    40% of all Americans filing a tax return pay no taxes. Obama is going for these voters and they don't care about anyone having to pay Clinton era taxes on the profits over $250k. It is a brilliant move.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    You got it Logan, right on the money man! It's the classic way to win an election; mobilize the "middle class", promise them everything they want, get elected.

    Nevermind that Sotero's tax plan will add another 10% to the list of people who already pay no taxes, guys making 50k a year and up (like me) will pay their share. I'm obviously a "wealthy elitist".

    You'll notice I never said it was right - just fucking brilliant. You'll see every person of color, every minimum wager, every metropolitan bus rider and every special-ed adult flock to the polls for Obama and McCain will have to set there and helplessly watch his campaign die. Again.

    Then quit bashing Bush & Mccain; that might help. If Obama is elected, the shit will hit the fan for the average working Joe and business owner. I will be much better off if Obama's campaign promises take effect; not taxing S.S. or retirement income would provide me with a great windfall.

    I don't know how you can say such a foolish thing. What do you think is happening with a lot of home owners right now?? If they aren't able to pay their mortgages, I doubt they are paying their property taxes. On top of that, many have mounting credit card debt and have lost their jobs. The divorce rate is insane and many end up financially devastated...the owe taxes, support, etc.

    If Joe the plumber had been an Obama supporter, the media would be embracing him. Nobody would be making fun of him or digging into his past. If the situation were reversed and Republicans did what liberals are doing to this guy, OMG, shit would hit the fan. The Republicans would be smeared for attacking the average guy with average problems. The liberals can't believe that a guy making a modest living feels that nobody (including the wealthy) should be penalized for their success. :eek: That this guy wants to work hard and acheive success on his own, not from a handout. :eek: Obama and his cult members have gone way too far by attacking an individual voter...you know, the very people he claims to be fighting for.

    Obama reminds me of The Manchurian Candidate.

    Secretary of Plumbing? We haven't had White House plumbers since the Nixon crew. :D
    Actually, he may run for congress, now that he's been vetted by the media and all that they could find was a tax lien.
