    What is  a "fair share?" In the current political discourse the term "fair share" is used a lot.

    I hear  that the "rich" should pay their "fair share" but I have not heard a definition of what that is.Are others paying a fair share? It seems there should be a standard for what constitutes it.

    Presently, it is a nice fluffy word that just sounds soooooooooooo good to use.
    I mean, who can argue about the need for something that JUST SOUNDS ..... SO FAIR?
    Now when someone puts some roots on this balloon full of air, maybe we can get it to stand still long enough for a serious inspection and commentary.

      The real point was that one should not talk about fairness without first defining what that consist of. What I think is fair someone else will not.

    i learned that when you become an adult that the word Fair No longer has meaning. That there is no such thing as Fair. Its something that Children believe in.
    Whats fair in life? is it fair that your neighbor gets a new car and you can't afford one? You get what you work for. The word "fair' does not apply in life. Nothing can ever be "Fair" no mater what it is someone will complain. Its not Fair.

      I think fair has to be an agreed upon standard and it is misleading to talk about it without such an agreement.
