How is that argument different (morally) from the mobster going to the businessman and telling him: "You have a nice little business here. It would be a shame if something bad were to happen to it. It'll take two large a week to make sure it doesn't. Cash, in a plain brown envelope. Remember, you've got a lot to lose here. See you next week!"No what I say is the system of govt needs to provide a way for everyone to have a chance to a level of success that allows them to exsist on their own.
at sometime when the system of govt is broken all hell will break out, is that what you want. Your willing to risk all you have or all you can get because your not willing to make sure the system of govt we have survives.
Those who have nothing have little to lose, it's people who have much more than they need, however they got it that will lose the most.
Be greedy and be ready for the outcome.
Just like the days of old, the treatment of workers that led to Unions, is not far away from where the have nots are about to say enough. You do realize that if enough people say this is BS and vote to overthrow your right wing agenda you are history. The days of 35% tax may well come to be 75% or more if it is felt we need it. and your crying about giving a little will be a thing of the past.
Asking people who don't have enough now to give part of it away so you can feel good is plain stupid and greedy. The tax system you are asking for would cause much more than you believe to be paid in. Getting rid of all deductions would never happen, let along making all income the same.
The wealthy people will not let it happen.
8 years ago I said that the republicans were out to bankrupt the govt, so they could get rid of unions, and govt programs that go to help the average citizen and the poor.
I was right then and I am right now.
