    the current tax system is based on taking from those based on an artificial ability to pay and distributing to those based on their voting numbers

    I want taxes to be more based on what a person uses. that is a common paradigm in history but it runs counter to the interests of people like those who see the purposes of the tax code as to give congress more power

    Complete and total nonsense that could only be spewed by someone with zero knowledge of history

    This may help explain his view of history:

Unskilled labor will always be plentiful and cheap, not to mention easily replaced in the near future with AI controlled robotics. If you choose to be poorly educated and not have a skill, well, I have not sympathy for you. Not only am I against a "living" wage for unskilled labor, I am against a minimum wage. Wages should be set by skill level and the abundance of people competing for employment at each skill level.
    Excellent argument for the reinstatement of slavery. Well done!

    Except that what he described isnt slavery. Expecting someone to base their own survival upon their own labor is the opposite of slavery, actually.
