I'm looking for a word that I thought was "tenants to an argument", but when I search for the definition of "tenant" or "tenants arguments" I get links to landlords and disputes.
What is the correct word I'm looking for that describes the units of persuasion that consists of a counterpoint in a persuasive discussion?
Morally, intellectually, and economically, I want people who make less than $250,000 (+/- 100 thousand) to be taxed less than those who make more than $250K. Good for him for being taxed in whatever angle you slice it. Hillary didn't pay enough.
My rationale is based in macro economics and not arbitrary spite, misinformation, or not liking how someone wags their finger. USA is totally f***, due to the distribution of wealth and propaganda through consolidation of media. Democracy is over. Trickle down failed. We're an oligarchy of the rich. For better or worse, I believe Sanders is our last chance at reclaiming one person one vote. All arguments, and persuasions I have start from this tenant. If we can't find common ground w/each other on this issue, there is no reason to discuss further.
