fair is paying for what you use
that is the most sensible definition
fair was when we didn't have an income tax
why should you keep more of your next dollar than me? I already pay far more t han I use and I get nothing in return for paying more taxes

until then you will keep voting for people who promise you more and more government goodies paid for by others
but I'd be happy to pay for the war if you libs paid for all the idiotic entitlement nonsense that was foisted on us starting with FDR's new deal.
