Modern day communists are hilarious. They just kind of pretend the USSR didn't already try it and fail miserably at it.

Saying that the USSR was really communist is like saying America is a real democracy.

no, people lack will and are greedy which makes them unwilling to form communism, not incapable. Sorry, i just want to point out it's the individuals fault, not genetics or humanity.

communism/marxism can't work! why would anyone choose to go to school and end up with the same salary as a trashcarier? he would get less money in the years he wents to school (pluss the money for the school if it wasn't free) and he would get a harder job (pluss the education is hard). I agree to that there should be more equally salaries, but the guys with a hard education and a hard job should earn more then in the "easy" jobs where you don't need any education etc.

I didn't say an ideal communist society would work, I'm just saying it is absolutely possible if the people wanted it bad enough, but they don't so it won't happen. Also in places like poland you couldn't choose your profession.

Just rolling luck, On the serious not tho.

There is no perfect form of ruling. Democracy sucks ass cause u have to go with the General opinion. If the general opinion decides to suck cock, then so do you my fellow democrat. With marxism, blabbering idiots claim right of your posessions which you gained with hard work. Also the economy would be worse if it was controlled by the marxist government.
And on the note of "a ****** 8$ an hour job", people have had it way worse than that idiot, and he obviously doesn't understand the fact that the world doesn't orbit around him. Some people in my homeland, Estonia, make a ****** 300$ per month with a FULL time job(not talking about janitor, but about decent jobs). Or he could have it even worse and be starving in Souther-Africa, around Ethiopia or so.


AAAAAND Romney still is a tool. And obama isn't much better than him.

ITT: Idiots correcting bigger idiots.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you also do not have a full time job, because if you did you would actually understand how the tax bracket works. If someone makes $15,000/year, they don't pay 15% or $2250. They pay %10 on the first $8,700 ($870) and 15% on everything they make above that up to $35,350. So a person who made $15,000 would pay (in federal income tax alone) (.10 * 8700)+(.15 * (15000-8700)) = $1815. BUTWAITTHERESMORE.jpg - Unless you choose to itemize your deductions (extremely unlikely for this tax bracket) the standard deduction is $5,950 for a single person with no dependents. This brings your taxable income down to $9050, and based on the rules mentioned above, this means you pay a total of $922.50 in federal income tax.

Moving on, depending on the state in which this person lived, they may have paid 6 or 7% income tax. They would also have to pay social security and medicare tax which is an additional 5.65%.

This doesn't disagree with the overall tone of your post, but I would ask that next time before you try to 'explain' something that you have no first hand knowledge of, at least do some research first.

i work minimum wage, every week i calculate how much money i loose to taxes, i allow the goverment to take the standard amounts, my moms an accountant so i figure ill just have her help me at the end of the year when i do taxes, i dont claim myself on my own taxes so 100% of what i owe is take....and after all that all i loose is 18%, idk where the rest of you live but i live in Maryland which happens to be Democratic state, which means taxes tend to be high (now i dont know this for fact because ive never moved out of state so i dont worry about other states as of right now in my life) so idk what you are smoking but 18% is not anywhere close to 50%. also the people at my work that do claim themselves only pay about 10%.

I had to totally simplify the numbers because people on this site have the attention span of a goldfish. As a student working his way through college, his deductions basically counter any money he'd be paying in taxes. You get a refund on 100% of your first $1000 and 50% of the next $1000. When he writes off his tuition and school related items he would effectively be paying no taxes.

If we have the attention span of goldfish, i suggest that you leave us creatures of lower intelligence be and find a crowd more suited to your high intellectual standards. It offends me that you make the assumption that people cant understand simple taxation math. You believe that you are enlightened, but nay, you are quite the opposite. I do hope the you step down from your self implied pedestal of political understanding some day. TLDR; you are as bad as the first guy.

Not if he is claimed as a dependent by his parents. Also, he said he was making 'less than $15,000' so we can't really argue over what percentage he claimed to have paid.

What would have been a far more convincing argument on his part would be to reference capital gains tax. I know of an elderly widow who collects almost $100,000/year in dividends from stocks purchased by her father and husband. Because these dividends are considered eligible under the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act, this woman pays a whopping 0% on her earnings. Here is a woman who has not worked a day in her life, and she is able to live on dividends without paying a cent to the government.

I am a college student, claimed as a dependent by my parents, and I work a full time job (45 hrs/week) during the summer and winter. I have no problem paying my fair share of taxes, and I don't believe that my rate is too high. I do however feel quite cheated when certain people can be rich as hell and still leech off the system while folks like me bust their collective asses and pay fair taxes.

Certainly the rich aren't the only ones ripping off the rest of America (i.e. those who misuse welfare), but it is worth noting that there are changes to be made at every level. I wouldn't go as far as to say that Mr. Romney "cheated" the rest of America, since he did not attempt to evade any taxes illegally. However, the fact of the matter is that under the system, folks like Romney were able to get away with paying 10-15% on their massive incomes. Moving money to offshore bank accounts certainly doesn't do the American people any good either. So while Mr. Romney did not do anything illegal, he is just one of the people out there who have more money than they know what to do with, and still utilize loopholes and special rules in the tax code to pay less than they should. I cannot support someone with such little regard for the typical taxpayer, or such little confidence in America.

Goldfish actually have a pretty good memory(which means that their attention span isn't all that short).
