    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.

    Ah, so you're one of THOSE types, lol.

    Well, my point still stands. If taxable income is clearly defined by the rule of law, be a doll and post it, then explain it, lol. There's about....300,000,000 inquiring minds I'm sure that would LOVE to have your understanding of the subject.

    How much income is enough, and how much is too much?

    I would be happy for them not to.

    That way, there'd be nobody to protect private property.

    No money that exists because government says it does.

    No cops to call when somebody bigger than you decides they want your ****.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    I want to know what laws reward Obama campaign contributors with sweetheart government loans.

    We are a nation of old laws that can be changed, and new laws not even passed yet.

    That's why these debates take place. It's a if we COULD, SHOULD we sorta thing. I don't think anyone here is considering becoming a tax protester.

    Re: Thieves teach OWS protestors about redistribution, the hard way

    Seriously, what is this thread about? The OP is trying to use street criminals to validate the practices of crashing a global economy.

    Evil Knievel couldn't make that leap.

    Can you stop using the word fallacy? I assure you, it doesn't make you sound more intelligent, you just sound like every other guy like you I've debated in libertarian groups. Sorry, I'm just sick of that word. And there are so many other great words you could us...so sad, so sad.
