    We have money and assets and don't mind paying our fair share of taxes. I have never once complained about it. It is the cost of living in our society. It becomes a problem when we let others with more $ and power avoid their fiscal responsibilities to our society as a whole.

    So in order to ensure everyone pays their fair share, we create laws and use government as the enforcer to collect from the willing and punish the unwilling. If everyone is following the law, who are you to decide that someone else's fair share is not enough, and how can you deny lusting for other people's money?

    The Repub's passed a law that allows some to rob society as a whole. Hopefully, the Dems will get control and right that injustice.

    So not giving enough to meet your wishes is robbery, and or injustice? How much of other peoples money would satisfy the Dems?

    We re all born with the capacity for empathy but how and if it develops and to what extent is another story. If it is fostered and noticed in childhood then most likely you will become a empathetic adult.

    I think you're using that word wrong. Empathy is to care about and wish well of others, just as charity is to willingly give to another. Both are noble traits. What you're protesting is different.

    Since the poster you quoted has declined to answer me, I'll ask you.

    Either you are choosing to not understand or don't actually. Not that it matters either way. Some want to live in a dog eat dog world.
