Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.


the rich were happy 100 years ago......as for the poor....they were the rule.....and they had it tough......they were the majority......

they rich are even happier today.

you know the saying, 'the buck stops here', by Harry S. Truman? His tax rate was 92% for the top bracket.......and we the people paid less in taxes into the early 1980s.....when Ronald Reagan said lets go back to the old America......and cut taxes on the wealthy......globally thinking that led to us paying more in taxes on the local, state, and national levels.....

I guess if you pine for a time when you were not born....you get what you deserve from the politicos.....
