    Wouldn’t it be better for everyone involved if the wealthy among us and big business paid their share of taxes? Unless those in control can figure out a way to stop those at the top from taking more than their share from companies and trying to hoard it away somewhere, and expecting those at the bottom to barely scrimp by, our country is headed down the tubes, then the dollar will be devalued and what good will all those dollars they are hoarding away be to them? Every legitimate religion (so far as I know) is based on the opposing forces of good and evil. This lack of concern for the less fortunate by the rich is just evil. Couldn’t we figure out a way that all Americans could have a reasonable standard of living? Something is wrong with our system when corporations such as Apple (and others) have more money than the federal government (when the federal government has so many people to be concerned about). And it is time those running the government lose their “whose side are we on mentality.” They no longer make wise decisions. They immediately take the position, “if the other side is for it, I’m against it.” They are acting like 5 year old kids. We have a lot of smart people and a lot of money in America. We could easily solve our problems if we took the civilized approach to problems and not the greedy, “what’s in for me” approach that we see each day we view the Washington political scene. United we’ll stand … divided we’ll fall.
