    Obviously many of these affect one another.

    Bottom line = you want disparate tax rates based on financial wherewithall.

    It is indeed. Taxing a man's labor is immoral, IMO, regardless of how that revenue is used by the government. There's a reason income taxes were outlawed from the founding of the country until the Progressive took over.

    That some of those taxes get redistributed to other citizens makes it even worse. After all, how is forcing some people to labor on behalf other people not slavery?

    It is worth mentioning that if the federal government lived within the confines of the enumerated powers of the Constitution, there would be no need for an income tax. Worked beautifully for 137 years...until the central planners convinced us that they know what's best for everyone. $16 trillion of debt later, we now see just how wrong they were.

    The anti-taxation argument is the domain of teh stupid. They will never understand that taxes are not "redistributed" to the poor, they pay for everything from highways to their senators' wages, from war machines to yes, programs to keep Americans from starving.

    That they are completely unwilling to participate in making the United States of America country strong, educated, compassionate, modern, efficient, and effective makes me wonder if they'd be happier in some other country.

    Why did you leave honesty and integrity out of the menu?
