If you use this poll as a guide, it seems that money does incentivize people to work harder.

    your feeble attempts to justify people who work harder than you paying more taxes fails on me

    Are you going to vote in this poll or just continue to make excuses for why your not voting in this poll?

    I already know which answer you would choose but I was hoping that you would surprise me.

    Why do you think your answer is the most advantageous for you?
    The answer is neither.
    I would not be happy living on 30,000 a year so I would be out busting my ass like I have most of my life creating more wealth. After busting my ass for the money I would not be happy with being forced to pay half of my earnings in taxes. Got it?

    This is a public poll. I will be able to see your vote later. I already know which one that you prefer but I'll still keep checking to see which way you vote in this poll.

    I don't know. I might take the first one if he is sitting around all day while the other guy is say doing mercenary work behind north Korean lines

    Statisticallly speaking the first guy is making about $10 an hour and working about 51.8 hours per week. The second guy is probably a doctor, business executive, a farmer, a bureacrat, a successful lawyer or something like that. He's probably working around 80-100 hours per week. Come on. You have a brain. You have enough information to make an educated guess. You are a smart guy. I think you will make a good decision.

    I would rather have the 250000 with 125000 burden bevause youre still making more than choice A. Well...it all really depends on what the taxes are being used for at that time. If theyre being used for something stupid, then id rather have the 30000 with no tax, because the tax collectors dont deserve the 125000 from my account to build something nobody wants or needs.

    Finally! An opposing view with a valid justification for his position. Thanks Jackson1050.

    Re: Which would you rather have?

    A) $250,000 income with 0 compulsory tax burden, but instead a voluntary actions tax like the founders created.
    B) $250,000 income with $125,000 government compulsory income tax burden.

    this would have been the better poll question.

    i vote A
