One strong reason to vote against Kerry

Both John Kerry and John Edwards, despite being among the wealthiest fraction of Americans, made specific, conscious efforts to not pay a higher tax, even though they could afford it.

Massachusetts lowered its state income tax, but left a line on the tax form where a taxpayer could voluntarily pay the higher older tax rate. Despite being one of the "winners of life's lottery," John Kerry did not pay the higher tax rate.

John Edwards did something even worse, setting himself up as an S-class corporation, with him the sole member. Although the dividend he paid himself was taxed at exactly the same rate as it would have as normal income, he avoided paying Medicare taxes on millions of dollars.

One of the things I hate most is hypocrisy and double standards. The Wonder Twins of the left sure have it in surfeit.
