    I can't believe so many people think liberty is a sin.
    Money =/= liberty.

    First of all, if it's dependent upon state of residence, possibly the State income taxes are too high.

    I do know that I basically scrape by from check to check, and I owe another $900 in taxes. Where I'll get that, I have no idea. Someone living paycheck to paycheck should not be paying that much in taxes. Maybe that's about spending levels, but if someone in a higher income bracket has to pay more so that those of us who struggle do not, I think that's OK.

    Also, my income is not in the top 53%. So if 47% of people aren't paying taxes, obviously some people with a much higher income than me are getting off easy. Because I am paying taxes, and my income definitely puts me in the lower half.

    you have nothing, but false info.

    you showed you do not know the Constitution by thinking the founders gave government the power to direct tax citizens.....that is complete misunderstanding of basic constitutional law.

    you fail in your arguments, ...and then resort to gibberish!

    There is no Appeal to Ignorance regarding our supreme law of the land. It really is that simple.

    From Article 1, Section 9
    No capitation, or other direct, tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.

    The Only ones full of fallacy, are those of the opposing view.

    There is no Appeal to Ignorance regarding our supreme law of the land. It really is that simple.

    From Article 1, Section 9
    No capitation, or other direct, tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.

    You've got it backwards. People in a society will (within reason) generally do what is legally allowed within that society. When a new law is passed, there will generally be some resistance to that law, but as time goes on, that law becomes accepted by the people, often regardless of what happens as a direct result of that law.

    The 2013 tax tables are below:

    Married Taxpayers Filing Jointly

    Head of Household

    Individual Taxpayers


    Married Taxpayers Filing Separate
    What's important to remember here is, that the more money you make, the higher the percentage you pay. That is why the rich are paying too much in taxes. Everyone should be paying an equal percentage.
