The Right likes to claim there is a "high" corporate tax rate in the US but of the forthy industrialized countries, the United States collects the least corporate taxes and in fact 2/3 of corporations operating in the US pay zero taxes. The corporations' share of Federal tax collections have gone from 45% in the fifties to down around 6% today.
Many corporations also gain windfalls from various levels of government for "creating" jobs [...] or they get money for things like oil "depletion" (where we pay them for having used up our resources) and that makes corporations negative tax payers, but don't call this "welfare," that's what the poor people get.

Really? What new taxes are you referring to? If you make less than $250, 000, you received a tax cut.
When Obama was campaigning, he promised "CHANGE"...that is the only promise he made that wasn't a lie. Those of us who are in the "middle class" income range are getting squeezed to death financially and have a new tax imposed almost daily it seems.
First, I don't believe you make less than $250,000 and pay 50% of your income. Second, the rest of your paragraph is sorely ill-informed. But hey, if you don't want to pay taxes, don't use the roads you use to get to your place of work. Don't drive a car that meets US safety standards - hell, don't drive a car at all, since the auto-industry is heavily subsidized by the government. Don't drink any water since it's been purified with tax-money. No parks for you. Don't ever call 9-11. Don't go to a public hospital (you can't get there anyway because you won't be driving).
About 50% of my income is now paid to the government to fund their social agenda. I worked hard to obtain an education and a good career, and I feel like I would come out ahead at this point if I were to get a job flipping burgers at a local greasy spoon cafe....after all, then I could have my income subsidized by everybody else's money just as thousands here in this country already choose to do....or, maybe with the new Healthcare Reform bill, I will be in the unemployment line along with tens of thousands of other people who are FORCED to have their lives funded by the government now.
Hmmm, this is probably what they want....then, they have us under their total control right?
In fact, you probably won't be able to do much of anything. What the hell are you doing on the socialist internet? That's funded by government and created with tax-payer money through DARPA. Get off now, or you'll be called a socialist!
America, love it or leave it.
