The poor should be banned from voting
The richest 10% should be banned from voting
The top 1% should be banned from voting
Only the middle class should be allowed to vote
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
No one wants to pay more than they have to.A lot of dishonest people are for tax increases that they themselves would not be paying for.Why would a smoker want to pay more for a packet of fags?
And that is how it should be. You would not want someone going an expensive restaurant and then making you pay the bill against your will.If you give people the choice 8 times out of 10 they will choose to pay less.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

But that is not what we are discussing here, we pay taxes to improve the country not to front someone elses bill.
