Tax The Rich Till There Are Rich No More - Page 2
At the end of the day, you raise taxes on a rich guy. What or how does that change my circumstances? No one iota. I am screwed either way inheriting a bigger portion of the national debt. I do not get envious over more successful people. I applaud them. Mind you not the crooks but the honest hardworking people who have been elevated by a product or service worthy of demand by the masses. Leave them and us alone.
So in sum, all those advocating tax hikes are for the most part liberal. And truth be told more liberals are wealthy than republicans. But it doesn't really matter to those who want to "soak the rich". Their minds are being polluted by drivel from carnival barkers disguised as statesmen. And believe me, I apologize to all the honest carnival barkers out there.
There is clearly only one solution. As we are all equal in the eyes of justice, we should be equal at tax time as well. I propose no income tax and love the idea of a national sales tax in its stead. Talk about an ensuing economic boom. That is exactly what one will see. But we are told it is "regressive to the poor". So is the cigarette tax hike Obama implemented his first week in office. Or the high gas taxes. These tend to hit the poor far more but I do not hear a peep from the compassionate set. Of course a tax credit can be issued for lower wage earners even with the national tax. But alas we are not soon to see such common sense and good for all policies out of the vipers in D.C. But one can hope. Merry Christmas.
