I am in fact advocating higher taxes on myself.
I don't give a **** about your "situation".
You're a radical liberal, with such limited knowledge that you believe a corrupt geriatric fossil like Biden is actually good for the country despite all the recent hardships he's inflicted on us over the past 2 years.

You're an imbecile, plain and simple.
And I'm sorry if I'm the first one to inform you of that fact.

Your assessment of me is completely incorrect. I didn't support Biden in the primaries I voted for him because he was a better choice than Trump.
I am a moderate.
And I provide references to back up virtually everything I assert.

You can delude yourself that you're a "moderate" all you want, but your actions belie your words.
NOBODY who EVER voted for an idiot like Biden could EVER be considered a moderate, even in your wildest hallucinogenic fantasies.  And the fact that after two years of Biden horrors you're STILL unwilling to admit how stupid a choice that was, you've confirmed that you are among the most radical of liberals, all who must be as senile as Biden himself.

EVERY liberal like you believes that they're a "moderate", when in truth they're all avowed leftists who have been proven by their continued support of Biden that they hate this country, hate the Constitution, embrace socialism, and are completely clueless about how the kind of economic policies have severely damaged this country.

THAT'S why I state unequivocally that you're an imbecile.

Maybe one day you'll encounter an actual leftist and you'll learn the difference.

Actually, my guess is that any time YOU meet that same leftist, you'll quickly become his BFF when you both realize you have so much in common.

It's just like I told you.  EVERY liberal thinks he's a moderate, just like you do!
And anytime you meet another avowed radical leftist, he'd claim to be a moderate just like you do!
Here's the test:

Do you hate Trump?  (worth 2 points)
Do you LOVE abortion? (worth 1 point)
Did you vote for Biden and still support him today?  (worth 1 point)
Is Biden innocent of stealing classified documents?  (worth 2 points)
Is Hunter's laptop really Russian disinformation?  (worth 1 point)
Do you think we need more gun laws?  (worth 2 points)
Are you deathly afraid that Trump will be re-elected next year?  (worth 5 points)

If you scored 4 points or more, YOU ARE NOT A MODERATE!
If you scored 8 points or more, YOU ARE A RADICAL LEFTIST!

I'm guessing you got 14 points, didn't you?

What you don't seem to realize is that there are actual leftists. Maybe one day you will encounter one and you'll realize the difference.

More likely, I'll greet him by saying, "Hi Slideman, nice to finally meet you, and all your leftist friends!"

So, you failed the test, didn't you?  :clap:

I do not hate anyone
I do not love abortion
I voted for Biden because Trump was the alternative I did not support him in the primaries and I am not happy with him now.
Biden's intentions are at this point unknown.
I have seen no evidence that hunters laptop is Russian disinformation.
I think we need stricter permitting for firearm used as exemplified by the fact that we have the highest murder rate of any industrialized Nation.
I would not say I'm deathly afraid I do not like the idea as he tried to end democracy in the United States the last time he was in office.
So how did I do

'Rotten' and 'grossly regressive' GOP tax proposals are a major 'gift' for Democrats: conservative

"Rep. Buddy Carter of Georgia has introduced a bill that calls for eliminating the national income tax and replacing it with a national sales tax of 23 percent, which, according to Carter’s critics, would really amount to 30 percent. President Joe Biden and other Democrats have been quick to attack Carter’s proposal, which has been dubbed the Fair Tax Act of 2023, and stress that it would be terrible for working-class Americans."

The Clearest Case for Taxing Billionaires Yet

Last year, the world’s wealthiest lost billions and didn’t suffer one bit. They wouldn’t suffer if they had to pay their fair share of taxes either.

It is silly because my paying more would not solve our fiscal problems. We need to tax the billionaires at a fair rate.

LOL.

In all, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined. The top 1 percent of taxpayers paid $723 billion in income taxes while the bottom 90 percent paid $450 billion.

NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TAX, IT WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH.
WE COULD GIVE YOU ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD, AND YOU WOULD SAY
"WE NEED MORE"
