Summed up it could read something like this:
Remember now, we're talking the California Edumacation system, where they tried to chop 10 more days off of the LAUSD School Year.

And where your basic Central LA HS student needs his SAT scores boosted so he can even get into college.

Compare the US educational system to a nation that has no taxes - like Somalia.

So you won't really answer the question but instead give a potted response mentioning things that could easily be argued as having nothing to do with tax collection, certainly not federal tax collection?

My question still stands, what do YOU think is an acceptible tax percentage people should pay?

Better yet, to a US state that has no income taxes, like Texas, with better property tax bills, and where CA students often are forced to drop back a year when transferring to here.

Why are liberals so fired up to compare the US to Somalia? Is that how they really see their own neighbors... just Somalia warlords in the making?

The clever posters here love to hear themselves bloviate - every increase in .gov = communism .... every decrease = Somalia.

what amazes is how some never tire from the same stupid hyperbole.

Because it's the one nation on this earth that meets all the conservative wet-dream check marks. No government, no taxes, no regulations, guns EVERYWHERE. Go hog wild!

"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer."

You've already demonstrated that you don't understand how marginal taxation works, so that pretty much ends any possibility for factual discussion.
