Bear with me, the info is from cnn.com, but i found what it had to say interesting...perhaps living nearly 100 years ago wasn't so bad?

http://money.cnn.com/2003/10/02/pf/taxes/irs_birthday/index.htm?cnn=yes

at this rate, in another 100 years the United States government will have the tax rate extremely high and most likely with less social services for the citizens who fund it that we have today...

There wouldn't be such a problem if there wasn't such a huge transfer of money from the poor to the rich, orchestrated by the government.

Gee, I would have said the exact opposite.

That's because you are usually wrong. Swallowing right-wing lies doesn't make you a better right-winger, Russ...it just makes you wrong. :frown:

Outrageous taxes that are caused by spending that simply didn't exist 90 years ago. People rode buggys on dirt roads, remember?

OOPS! And I thought it had something to do with the fact that it took 5 administrators to oversee the installation of a lightbulb in a government facility! Darn! Wrong again?!
