Response to TBF (Reply #1)

3. TBF we ain't that far apart at all :)

I am actually 100% with you on this, It annoys me to no end that major companies can do business in the US without paying their share of taxes. If they did, this country would not be in the downward skid it is at all. Infrastructure would not be left to crumble and high paying union jobs would lift us all, keeping wages and salaries up.

I think too many in the world I travel in believe the falsehood that higher taxes and government spending on programs that benefit all of us = a poor economy. Historically, when unions are strong and taxes were at pre-Reagan levels and prior to the high spend on guns we were an insanely strong and prosperous nation.

I really appreciate your answer though, I think you have me going down the right track when I talk to them again.
