OT: Millionaires ask for higher taxes

Page 5 of 5  


Just was replying to trader's comment of
"Another interesting angle to think about. The top 5% of income earners pay about 60% of the total income tax collected. While the bottom 50% of income earners pay only 2% of the income tax. If you want to start playing the class warfare game, seems to me a case could be made that the taxes should instead be raised on those making lower incomes."

Ben doesn't seem to undertand the basic process here. This is the second non-sequitor in a couple posts.

That's all I've seen from him. Typical of a leftist.

Exactly. There has always been an unequal distribution of wealth in the world. I'd like to see data that shows that in any of the socialist countries in western europe that it's significantly different. The only places that managed to get things close to equal for the vast majority of their citizens did it by forc reducing everyone to poverty through the elimination of most freedoms by force. A prime example being the former Soviet Union.

I agree, I'm not saying they should. I'm just saying the ones that say they don't pay enough have yet to step up and pay what they think is enough. I also believe that if you're getting gvmt assistance you should be required to take a drug test just like all the people that are paying for your assistance.

You mean, none of them put their money where their mouth is? Why am I not surprised? The voluntary tax fund has never been a secret. ^_^

Would it be illegal for those who are wealthy to voluntarily write a check for whatever amount of money over and above what is required by the tax laws to the government to use for whatever? If not, have at it! If you are wealthy and want to send every penny of your wealth to the government, please do, I have no problem with that but don't tell other people who might have a lot of money that they have to give all their wealth away. There is something I call The Liberal Mindset which causes those who are afflicted with it to bend over for a body cavity search by a government agent because they want to FEEL safe and they believe I should have an anal probe too and should not resist it. It's about freedom. ^_^
