Nationalism and fascism are considered right-wing ideologies.

I call myself a woman.

But lo and behold my penis is still there. Calling yourself something does not make you that something. They championed NATIONAL socialism. A decidedly fascist ideology.

And you saying they weren't socialists doesn't mean they weren't socialists retard.

... But they literally did not do anything socialist. They destroyed unions, opposed any "marxist" ideas, and denied any form of internal class conflict. They were an ultranationalist party.

Capital gains are fine, my problem is with Wall Street. If you make a billion dollars by the sweat on your ass, good for you, but there's a difference between what should be and what is.

Funny how people are calling me literallysatanthatrapesbabies because I'm advocating for less government influence in all senses but one.

You do realize that the money Wall Street makes ARE CAPITAL GAINS, right? I've tried to give you the benefit of the doubt, but now I can see that you are just a dumbass.

I thought you meant ideologically.

Billionaires don't pay less in absolute numbers, but they do pay a small percentage because how they accrue and hold wealth doesn't work the same as, say, a successful regional business owner that simply puts a chunk of the profit in the bank. At that level of income, most of your wealth is in the form of assets that can be liquidated or reinvested, as well as connections to the businesses you own and associate with. Stock trading, business expenditures, these aren't treated the same as plain income, which is why CEOs often even have microscopic salaries so they can avoid it outright.

I'm all for a simplification of the tax code. Personally, I think we should throw tax deductions out the window. You make X, you pay Y percent. That's it. No funny business.
But a big factor in how the ultra rich pay lower rates is the capital gains tax. That is a tax on money you make with your money. The capital gains tax rate is low, but it's on income that you earned with your past income, which was already taxed. So yes, the rate is low, but you have to remember that they already earned the source of that income and already paid taxes on it.

Explain how you think that people who make billions pay less taxes than those who make millions. Or continue to dance around the issue, indicating you don't want a serious discussion of the flaws in the tax system.
