    It isn't taking other people's stuff in order to give it to others. It is collecting revenue to pay for our government.

    well you just claimed in another thread that Newt won because of the radical right. Now I sort of agreed with you but the fact remains, you and AdamT are among the farthest left on this board when it comes to tax issues though your calls for everyone paying some income tax softens that a fair bit

    that is the statist apology for income redistribution. Its actually taking from some to buy the votes of more. when we see people whining about the rich not paying their fair share its not about efficient revenue collection. Its about using the tax code to "get even" for the unfortunate or unproductive

    its the classic case of afflicting the comfortable based on the vote buying lie of comforting the afflicted

    I bet far more people are buying ammo than are welfare socialists but are you trying to divert things?

    You really need to get over your envy and martyr complex. People don't hate the rich. Most folks don't envy the rich. It's simply a question of funding the government, and when you have to raise substantial revenue it only makes sense to turn to those who have most of the money.

    Turtle - I know very few people on the far left who call for tax increases on people making dollar one. That sort of talk would not endear me to many on the left... let alone the far left.

    Oliver Wendell Holmes said it best

    Taxes are the price we pay for living in a civilized society.

    To couch taxation in right wing extremist terms like theft or confiscation is just extremist nonsense that fools nobody except those who already prostrate themselves before the extremist altar.

    Collecting revenue is taking people's stuff.
