The über-wealthy with their conservative media have done a great job on the gullible. They have convinced them that if the über-wealthy pay the same amount in taxes by percentage as a person on minimum wage, this would be communism or socialism.

We, the non-gullible, would just like the über-wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. The gullible, on the other hand, do not want to lose the freedom of paying more in taxes — making up for the revenue loss caused by the über-wealthy buying lobbyists and politicians so they can write a tax code putting more of the burden on freedom lovers like the super-gullible of the middle class.

The non-gullible would not mind the gullible being lackeys to the über-wealthy except that it cost us non-gullible tax payers so much more money because we have to make up for the revenue loss caused by the über-wealthy moochers that do not pay for their fair share on the tax burden.

This not standing up for communism, this is having common sense.
