    Oh, but they will...They will just move the bar as they do with everything they argue...Right now, their whole meme is about "taxing the wealthy" but when you dig down into their numbers they want to go after people, and couples making over $75K per year....Does $75K sound "wealthy"?

    Well, hypothetically, if all earners left then their would be no revenues and then no government. Kinda hard to move the bar under those circumstances.

    In history that is what happens....Government doesn't disappear, it just goes after those who can't afford to escape.
