Default I may become a Democrat

If the left continues to saddle the U.S. with taxes, it should break the backs of the average person.
Business people often tend to lean to the right when infact the left is their best friend. Taxes will never put a company out of business, especially when you have the employess being crushed by the government with health insurance bills, higher property taxes, gas tax, sin tax, registration tax, ect.
Businesses have the capibility to increase their prices to compensate for these additional taxes, however employees are at the mercy of the company, and can always be fired or replaced.
So it seems to me that the left is actually the ones trying to create a society of the rich and the poor.

I think it will be the poor, because the people that strive to be self employed will find a way to not pay to maintain the dead weight of society, so then the government will bail on taking care of them because thats what they do, and you will end up with the rich and the poor.

There is no correlation between prices and consumer ability to pay?

of course there is, it however depends in part on the price elasticity of the good or service that he provides.

I'm self employed and own my own business, so I get to adjust my pricing while I take away from my employees, that way I continue to be the rich and crush the employee.
So the more the left taxes on everbody the more I raise my prices and the less I pay my employees.

If they don't pay me they get no water, can't flush toilets, and will have no roads. So they will find money to pay me while forgoing other not so important items. Like new clothes, cars, entertainment.
