    Ok maybe add is the more appropriate word over change. But, sure. Here's the OP:

    or
    B) A $250,000 income with a $125,000 tax burden?
    Why do you think your answer is the most advantageous for you?
    No details. Then you throw in this little tidbit on page 8:

    or
    B) $250,000 income with $125,000 tax burden and be pissed about it.
    So modifications begins. On page 9 you throw in a lot more detail:

    The first job is great. The second job sucks.
    Page 10 brings us:

    Your tax rate is 0.00% in scenario A. Your tax rate is 50.00% in scenario B. That was pretty clear.
    So there you go. You have been constantly altering/adding as we go along in this thread.

    I would choose option B because it would leave me with $1,000,000 left over to use on anything that I wanted to buy. With option A, I would only have $30,000 left to use on anything that I wanted to buy.

    You are free to take that into consideration when voting in this poll.

    Just remember a simple 2nd grade math reality. $30,000 is less than $125,000. This reality is more important than all the gobble de guck that you are complaining about. Are you going to vote in this poll? If not, you are getting an F in this class.

    I don't think that tax burden is much of a worry to people, so long as they end up with more money after it all.

    What people dislike is additional paperwork involved, and perhaps especially, having to work harder.

    But you can never control the actions of others. You have to do what is in your best interest. There is no reason to sabotage yourself because others are being unfair. Take the $125,000 and run. Laugh really hard at Grand Mal for only getting $30,000. You have $95,000 more than he does. If he needs your help you might want to give him a few bucks but that depends on how big of a scum bag you are. If you are a scum bag just let him starve while you spit on him for choosing to make a lower amount of money.

    If you are a good person just give him a few dollars. You probably won't miss it.

    If you look at the results from this poll it looks like you are probably right.

    There is no reality in this poll. Hence why I will not be making a vote. I would not take any job where I don't have a chance of increasing my income or moving up.

    It isn't supposed to represent reality. The poll was designed to find out if there is any such thing as a person who despises graduated income taxes on principle alone. There isn't.

    It just proves that people who complain about the graduated income tax are just liars who like money so much that they want more just because.

    It isn't the fact that they hate the graduated income tax. It's just the fact that they want more money. They advocate lower taxes because they want more money not because they want our country to survive or they want our country stronger.

    Would you hate a**holes who preached with such fiery hyprocracy as that?

    There is absolutely no such thing as a human being who hates the graduated income tax. There just isn't.

    SO you wouldn't mind 3/4 of your labor and time doing that labor going to someone who didn't earn it?
    "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
