That's a very DNC-supporting and -supported firm. Why isn't it paying its "fair share"? Oh, I guess I already answered that.

What no one, left or right, seems to grasp, is that socialism is far more rigged in favor of the super-rich than capitalism is.

'Rags to Riches' does not happen under socialism, but the richest are far more insulated under socialism than capitalism.

This is also why women vote for socialism (aside from the fact that money gets redistributed from men to THEM).... an oligarchy at the top makes it easy to figure out who to suck up to and who to get impregnated by. A capitalist system means the man who is at the top now may not be at the top 10 years from now. That makes a woman's reproductive decisions harder.
