    Many millionaires and billionaires do feel they have an obligation to the world around them. That's why there are so many charitable foundations they support.

    Paying more taxes only supports the government.

    If you are sick, would you rather go to City of Hope, or the local governent hospital? If your chid has cancer would you take the kid to St. Jude Children's hospital or the county?

    Exactly. Government...the same that thinks all wealth belongs to government.

    Government has chosen to become philanthropists...when there isn't an utterence in the Constitution that allows it.

    The goal of the Statist is to wipe out the private sector...and thus the call from the labor Secratary for these people to 'pony up'.

    Life is as fair as you care to make it, and wealth isn't measured in dollars.
    Certainly not someone else's dollars.

    prima facie, "Blue-Collar" groups (e.g. veterans, minorities, women, unemployed) want Government Force, to take taxes, from "White-Collar" groups (e.g. millionaires & billionaires), to pay for "Blue-Collar social safety-nets" (e.g. education, health-care, welfare); employing Government Force, to take their money, is perceived as "fair" (cp. Robin Hood ?)

    how is "everybody playing by the same rules", when some are taxed ("White-Collar" millionaires), whilst others are paid ("Blue-Collar" workers) ?

    how is that "fair sharing" -- "hey, if you get that Dollar bill; then i get it too" ? I.e. "fair sharing" amounts to "time-shares on all Money", i.e. "you get that Dollar bill, on M/W/F; then i get it, on Tu/Th/Sa/Su" ?

    prima facie, the "dream" towards which "Leftists" have Aspired, is a "dream of 'Ends'" (easy utopian lifestyle); utterly un-caring about "the 'Means'" (tax whoever has the money), apparently "Justified" by the utopian "Ends"

    " 'the Ends Justifies the Means' is the Means, to Justify both those Means, and their (actual) Ends "
