    Which would you rather have?

    A) A $30,000 income with a $0.00 tax burden?

    or

    B) A $250,000 income with a $125,000 tax burden?

    Why do you think your answer is the most advantageous for you?

    I choose B because that would still leave me with $125,000 left over to spend. The first scenario only gives me $30,000 left to spend.

    I think it would be easier to live on $125,000 than it would be to live on $30,000.

    Option B) still leaves me with $125,000 left to play around with every year.

    Don't get me wrong. I'd really prefer to have a tax rate that was set at something less than 50% if at all possible. However, going by the mathematics alone, the question would seem to be a "no brainer."

    This has to have some deeper meaning, other than finding out if anybody is mathematically illiterate.

    It does. The op didn't pay income taxes this year, according to another thread that he started, so I suspect it's an attempt to be okay with it.

    I have read people claim that poor people have it made because of all of the government benefits that they receive.

    This thread proves that claim to be an extreme exaggeration.

    I thought Libertarians were against income taxes. Why didn't you vote for option A? It seems to be the obvious choice for people with your ideology.

    Paying income taxes sucks really bad. Right?

    Somethings go without saying. I know which one that you would prefer. Don't worry. I won't tell.

    No. It's that the poll was intentionally set up to justify your discomfort, from what I can tell. I'm not a sucker, I'm not stupid, and am not easily manipulated. If it were a honest poll, without intentional bias, it would be different, but that's not the case. Just go ahead and humor yourself.
