Are you my alter ego?
--Prudence (my real name)
Since I don't know your ego, I don't know whether I am your alter ego. Anyway, the world has more Prudences than it has prudence.
You probably will think this is from a Democratic nut, but it is a serious question. Why does a responsible political party have a goal of reducing taxes on the rich? It seems only logical that those with high incomes should pay more than those with lower incomes! A concern that most rational people should have is how to equitably distribute the great wealth of this country. Taxation of the wealthy and assistance to the less fortunate is one simple way. Also money is needed for many, many good purposes! What is the Republican Party's rebuttal to this?
Prudence cannot speak for the Republican Party (who can?), but she can give you some thoughts on the matter.
