    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.

    Great wealth is not something they need, its something they want.
    It's none of your business what other people think they need, if it's gotten legally.

    So we are to be a country of needs, now? The american dream is to become simply...the ability to procure one's needs to sustain life?

    You might want to try a different debate tactic (such as developing a strong premise in which to defend). Equivocation is a fallacy.

    No I'm not. You're justifying one man with a gun to my face, while invalidating another, based on what's legal or not legal.

    Meaning, when theft is enforced by law, you no longer consider it theft, but a "societal obligation".

    Can you make a reply without the use of a fallacy?
