So let’s say I worked REALLY hard. I invested my money well. I grew my sum of total assets steadily and wisely and I am now worth say $250 million dollars. Or, I wrote a novel which became a overnight success. Or, I won the multi-million lottery.
This is of course hypothetical.
Should I pay more taxes (percentage wise) than someone who makes $30K a year?
No, really. WHY?
Why should I be penalized for DOING THE RIGHT THING?
I use the SAME THINGS YOU DO.
The same roads.
The same power.
The same water and sewage.
WHY SHOULD I PAY MORE?
What logic dictates in the mind of a Liberal that says because I am successful I need to be punished?
America was not created to be the land of taxation. It was in fact created BECAUSE of taxation. The founding fathers were SICK of paying taxes.
