well... see... the trick is... if you want the gold... you gotta kill that damn goose.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

This conversation is back-a$$wards.
Why do we tax? The Federal Government needs money by which to operate.
Upon what should the Federal Government operate? That which is constitutional.
What is constitutional? Besides the items to physically operate the Congress, the Executive, and the Judiciary, and a few other items found in the Constitution, those that are in Article I, section 8 are the constitutional powers of the Federal Government.
If that were done, the budget of the United States would be cut by around 75%.
Why not remove taxes from companies? Companies from around the world would flock to the U.S. to set up manufacturing and other facilities. Besides, the public pays the taxes anyway. It's like the gasoline or liquor tax. They are just hidden. Besides, with 75% or more of the government gone, taxes would decrease on individuals even if we did away with taxes on businesses.
If companies flock to the U.S., what would happen to unemployment? It would dramatically decrease.
If unemployment decreased, what would happen to wages? They would dramatically rise.
Naturally, we would need to minimize our regulations and only keep those that are absolutely necessary for the well-being of the country and its people. Instead of being jealous and greedy, we should look for ways to maximize the ability of everyone to succeed and not seek to punish those who actually do succeed. Again, that is back-a$$$wards.
