    Is this just a stupid argument used as a front to attack Libertarian ideology? Do you want 30K or 125K? I'll take 125K...OMG You're not a libertarian!!!!

    No, someone just can do math. Jesus Christ, it's a two choice hypothetical, that's it. Any intricacies of debating income tax are not offered for this discussion, it's a simple "do you like more money or less" question. So sorry some people understand math, but you're little "I gotcha!" moment here is nothing but absurdity and ignorance. Try a better argument.

    If everyone in the US would just pick B, the country would be so much better off.

    They weren't pretending to be a Libertarian. A true Libertarian would have voted Option A.
    Read my reply again. Your poll was rigged so I went with C. Since C wasnt available I didnt vote.

    That is correct. Read the comments below:

There were some Libertarians and Conservatives who didn't vote. I gave them an incomplete and will be explaining the make up assignment a little bit later.

    Option A implies that you live in a place where at least some people have a 0.00% tax rate.
    Option B implies that you live in a place where at least some people have a 50.00% tax rate.
    Option C is the real world and tax system that exists today.

    Which world sounds the best?

    Options A and B also implied that you can never rise above your initial income level. Per your own words. So given that I will that the real world anyday, and work to improve the overall tax systems.

    ...the premise is wrong, the poll is meaningless, and everything the thread accomplished is a mirage.
