Government Force "should" protect-and-serve markets, guarding economies against thievery (e.g. via en-Force-ing contracts). Ergo, every economic market-place transaction "should" be guarded by Government, and "should" be sales-Taxed to cover costs ("paying the security guards"). If Government were economically neutral, then Government would apply a single flat-rate sales-Tax (e.g. 10%), on every dollar spent, in the market-place, on every commodity bought-and-sold (e.g. income, the "sale" of Labor). However, business profits are "what's left over after the trading-day is done"; business profits do not reflect economic trans-activity, but the after-effects of the same. Ergo, Taxes on business profits are not "paying the guards in the market-place"; are "paying the guards back at home whilst counting money". Ipso facto, Taxes on profits economically resemble "muggings", of merchants, "on their ways back home", after-hours. if business pay Taxes on profits (Revenues - Expenses); then people should pay Taxes on their net-incomes ("how much you got in your account?"); if people recognize the latter as a Taxation-after-Taxes ("double jeopardy"), then they should recognize the former, as precisely the same ("Taxed for standing around with money in your wallet").
