  • Every time we cut regulations, business goes crazy. What do we get in return? Depressions & recessions. We, the taxpayer, must bail them out. Since their MBAs obviously aren't attached to sound ethics, regulations ARE a must!

  • Really? compared to other countries, we SURE AS HELL are not. Many European countries pay MUCH higher taxes. (it's how Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and Norway are able to have free college tuition. Us Americans need to quit thinking that we are soooooo oppressed by our government.

  • More like not enough.

Comrade, please inform me specific reasons on why we are not being taxed/regulated. How it isn't restricting job growth and business. I know you are big on socialism, but put that view aside. And provide me with your facts.

You may not know this. But i run my own farmers market. I'm also a high school student. In between 2 jobs, ROTC,Trap shooting, and my studies. I spend all my free time jumping through tiny loops that if i overlook i could be in big trouble. They have such a strangling grip on me. I thought about shutting down, but with my community's help, ive found the strength to hold all this weight. Im trying to grow smaller business in my small-ish town of 3000 people, i helped start the small business movement. I wanted a vinyl sign for my market. To get that sign in a location, i had to set up a meeting with The Department of Transportation. I had to pay a sign license of 20$. I had to pay just over 100$ on Permits itself. I have to follow the county health regulations. Im sorry, but i thought capitalism was made up of a Free-Enterprise Economy. Not rules, fines and regulations, its stunting the small business growth.

No rules? Corporations would smash small business completely.

I agree completely, but TOO MUCH rules are very detrimental to all business, many bigger business's get away from those rules from under the table payments, smaller business's are left to just scrounge by. Regulations are good, too much regulations are bad.

The cost of living in those countries that you listed, SweetTea is outrageously high and the income isn't proportional to the taxes.
