Besides, just because it's your favorite argument doesn't necessarily mean that you agree with it. It might be your favorite for comedic purposes or because of it's scholarship. It doesn't mean you agree.
I don't believe there is nearly as much hate in the hearts of the American people as you like to pretend there is.
The concept of a flat tax has always been a pipe dream of wealthy people.
It'll never happen.

It's not what you say, its how you say it....or so I"ve been told. Phrasing poll questions is key to getting the responses that support a theory, or cause, or issue, or whatever. Objectivity is like a muscle that needs to be exercised or it atrophies....use it or lose it. It's not easy to be consistently objective....so I give you credit for trying.

Of course, not all taxes carry the same "negative moral charge". Sales taxes leave more room for freedom of choice than income tax, and gasoline tax can be viewed as a user fee. Perhaps showing the way for the reforms leading toward "moral improvement".
All the reasons are valid, hard to pick the favorite. The question is, of course, how to balance the necessity of substantial revenues with the moral and practical imperative to push toward lower and less offensive taxes. Especially in the era when ballooning national debt poses an existential threat.
