Its been going on for the last 150-200 years in this country.

So I will ask you again.
Tell me Chase, how tyrannical is Japan or the UK? Both have higher tax rates than the US. Are people today fleeing from the tyranny and oppression of either of those two governments?

Apple to an Orange. Regardless, maybe you can answer your question by looking at Americans the day after Thanksgiving and Japan the day after a earthquake/tsunami.

Why are you so obsessed with constitutional monarchies?

Both the UK and Japan have a higher maximum income tax rate.

Why do you feel the need to deflect a valid question posed to Chase. He is the one rambling about tyranny do to higher maximum income tax rates. Both Japan and the UK have higher maximum income tax rates than the US. So under Chase's statement, they must have tyranny and greater tyranny than he is alleging the US has. So I merely asked him where that tyranny is, how it manifests itself, and if these are even more tyrannical govt than the US where are the people trying to flee from this tyranny and oppression? (OK, I think he is full of excrement, but, lets play along...better to humor the poor lad after all)


Being obsessed with the great game of "proper" football does not equate to obsession with constitutional monarchies. Personally, I don't give a rats about the monarchy.

Why are you so obsessed with (what you erroneously perceive to be) other people's obsessions?

I'm not obsessed but rather merely curious about the decisions and obsessions of others and how and why they derive them.

Such a simplistic view. Terms like ROI would never exist if the world of business followed your logic.

I didn't know I needed to regurgitate my economics thesis to make a point on here.

Your graduate degree is in economics? Me too! I focused on how the more money we come across, the more problems we see.
