I figured a broader part of the board might like this. He's a representative running in Olathe.

Great entertainment at 11:51 p.m. but I'm not paying. Thanks though.

I'm not in his constituency, but I have to give the guy props. Absolutely brilliant, creative. If there was an award for best candidate website, he's earn it.

An end to regressive taxes?

Jeezus, half the country doesn't pay income taxes, the top 1% pays more than the bottom 90% and this guy wants to tilt the balance even further?

No thanks, I think I'll vote against socialism this time, cute little comic or no.

I think you'll find that as a total percentage of income, the top 1% pays less than those that earn less. Here's an article about Warren Buffett you may find of interest. (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/money/tax/article1996735.ece)

The good news is, for only $60, you get a nice "thank you" card. I'm sure it's worth it. Or not.
