Wonderful. You're going to be "life experience guy" in law school. Life experience guy is one of the worst people in law school and he often values his life experiences much more than the world does. If his life experiences were that great, he wouldn't be making a late career change.

Also find it funny when people misspell words like intelligent (though misspelling "grammer" is the all-time champ).

Don't we have some of the lowest tax rates across the board today ? How can people keep bringing up this whole socialistic BS with a straight face? If anything the Bush/Reagan years just showed us that lowering taxes saddles us with huge deficits and widening income disparity. Isn't the end result income inequality on scales that rival some African dictatorship nations ? Okkieee..

Oh and to answer your question Bartlebee, still deflecting (it is more fun)


But would you not agree that lower taxes and limited government would enlarge the pie, creating a better quality of life for all economic strata?


If everyone worked for the government, then the pie would be as big as it possibly could, thereby ensuring the best quality of life for all, not just for a few.

(hey, if you get to be a conservative now, I get to be Fidel!)


Good and we can all drive cars from the 1950s like the Cubans.

But a flat tax would reduce income inequality, because everyone would be taxed equally?

God I can't do this right wing BS with a straight face lol.

Ah, the spelling critique again. Yes I suck at spelling. Life experience trumps blind ideology all day. Spend less time minding my spelling and more time experiencing life.

I'd like to use individual states as an analogy.
http://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/regiona ... elease.htm

As you can see, the states with the lowest tax rates (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_income_tax) have experienced a greater degree of GDP growth by state. If we can expand this to the national level, you could make a reasonable extrapolation that our GDP would grow at more rapid pace, enabling us to become a wealthier nation and thereby ensure more private sector efforts to take care of the down-trodden.

Yes, the reason taxes help the rich now is because of loop holes and deduction schemes that they can pay to find. The tax code started out at 14 pages and is now 72,000. Flat tax + simple and fair. The only deductions should be for people below the poverty line

I'm less concerned with your spelling and more concerned with the fact that you didn't notice the squiggly red line below the misspelled word. Despite your remarkably insightful political sense, your lack of attention to detail will sink your middling legal career.

FWIW, your future classmates will hate you and will make jokes about you when you're not around.

I refuse to take the time to correct every miss typed word. I am not in class and this is supposed to be for enjoyment. As far as my classmates making jokes that is fine. I will spend my life trying to better myself and those I love and they can spend theirs by bashing people who are unlike them. Guess that whole liberal idea of acceptance is a missnomer.

Most law students are liberal (at least 60% or so, not overwhelming, but still more than half), and most law students are assholes, so you get some overlap that isn't representative.
