    why? that benefit did not come from the government

    and it didn't come from those who make stupid decisions that cause them to be impoverished

    you seem to think existing is a just claim on someone else's labor or wealth

    So the Gates foundation, which will receive $40 billion or so from Buffet should be taxed in your view?

    most of the planet Earth disagree with you.

    Income tax is the law of the land and will stay that way.

    I doubt you have done anything that has made me richer so you can forget about me giving you anything. but your hatred of the rich is both expected and a bit pathological

    that would prevent all the envious from slaking their hatred of the people more industrious than they are from voting for idiots who promise them to oppress the wealthy
    Wealth should be taxed rather than income or consumption. Then the wealthy can whine about their fair share.

    most of the planet is ignorant and far less educated than I am

    find an argument that makes rational sense

    mob rule might win but that doesn't make it right

    No, because charitable foundations donate their money based upon need, or merit, rather than DNA.

    yeah it only takes a few posts to get the envious to show their true colors.

    much wealth doesn't generate income but you would want say a widow living on a small pension to be taxed a ton on a valuable piece of land she lives on

    do you tell your employer this. If i had an employee spewing this nonsense he'd be 86'd in a heartbeat. Its time the rich start doing that to people who want to engage in class warfare

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
