Leftist do you really think that it's fair to tax someone at a higher percentage just because they have more of it? I don't think it's fair as I believe we should all pay a equal percentage...Once we start taxing someone at a higher percentage, because they have more-- then you get into problems of fairness that can led to big problems that have occurred throughout history(USSR, Cuba, Kenya, China, ect). It is only right that everyone get taxed fairly for the things that we enjoy within our country---Defense, pavement for our roads, ect. It is about fairness. If things are fair then there is less hatred towards each other and more peace.
