    Crazy right wingers that want to tax the poorest

    After watching the election Nov 6, it should be very clear that that we have a divided nation over these very issues and I do not see it getting any better in the near future. Although I am a strong Republican, I believe in raising the taxes for the rich, but like some of the posts, I believe that the the poor should contribute something-maybe 2% or whatever. If we want to be a whole nation, we should all have skin in the game. If you believe in redistribution of the wealth, and a divided nation wait, you will have your chance to contribute to this endeavor sooner than you think.

    The AGNC message board has always been one of my favorites due to some very intelligent people posting excellent recipes for improving your wealth. However, as with some of the other boards, politics has become a greater concern on this board as well.LOL

    • I was a devout Republican years and years ago, but went Independent and have never been sorry I did. I agree with Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and with the T party. I disagree with the Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and with the T party. I challenge anyone...ANYONE... to take the GOOD points and policies EACH party makes and combine them into one centrist platform. Naaa....too %$#% logical....

      In a working society there has to be a relative balance to retain the good of the society as a whole. Redistribution TO A MINOR DEGREE is a necessary evil when money pool imbalances attain unsustainable ratios, albeit deemed as temporary. Calling it redistribution, socialism, or class warfare is a total exaggeration of the root problems. Letting something expire in times like these that was originally written to expire because it was intended to be temporary does not seem like any kind of loss to me. But at the same time I don't want to see increased revenue used to produce "free rides" and bribe well-to-do countries either among other things....

      This is a lot more than I normally say about politics.... I think I'm getting the flu. ;o)
