    I vote for paying the necessary taxes. I vote we return to a truly progressive tax system. If starting an asset tax at $100,000 is too low, then make it half a million or a million before it kicks in.

    Of course, this won't happen because the people who have worked their magic to vastly widen the income and wealth gap between rich and poor over the past 35 years won't stand for it. They've already looted leprechauns' pots while telling the rest of us that if we even attempt to adjust anything we're messing with destruction of the national rainbow.

    Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I'll tell you what you believe.
