    How is taking more from one group than another moral behavior anyway?

    For that matter, how is taxation moral behavior?

    any tax system that causes Tom Brady to have to pay some of your citizenship dues is really immoral. Rich people subsidizing the benefits of slackers, the untalented or even the unlucky is hardly moral

    You are only forced when you do not pay.

    No one forces me to pay my taxes. I agreed and accepted the payment as a condition of my work career. I understood I would be paying taxes since before my very first job.

    No one from the federal government ever came and strong armed me into anything.

    You must be a lawyer because that's a big heaping pile of word play right there.

    Well, that's good for you, but for me, I never agreed to pay taxes.

    You support services provided, which require some communal contribution. Taxation is a common term for such contributions.

    Brady is a god amongst men, to me. If I had the money, I'd pay it for him.

    But I have rent I gotta pay next month.

    Taxation is obligatory in some form in order to ensure (at a minimum) the security of a nation. That's neither moral or immoral.

    Demanding that citizens give equally requires many to give beyond their means. Requiring someone to be obligated beyond capacity is immoral.

    I'm of the belief that the income disparity that Tom Brady earns compared to the rest of the population is immoral.

    Once we've balanced that discrepancy, more equal citizenship dues can certainly be discussed.

    I think the free market-while not perfect-is far better in deciding compensation levels than people who may be operating under the influence of envy

    I'll let this speak for me..

    On the note of equal taxation though, if your prior claim about taxes is correct and taxes are indeed to pay for those services provided to us, then it is only reasonable that people are charged equally for those services.
