    Re: 5% Additional Tax on Gross Income

    I think the intent of this poll was lost. The issue isn't about other people getting taxed or about who should be taxed or any of that nonsense.

    The question was how would an additional 5% tax on your gross income impact your life?

    Would you be forced into poverty? Would you be forced into starvation? Would it simply make you mad when you seen the dollar amount? or would your life remain relatively the same?

    The digging of holes and then covering them up was representative of a public service that you personally deem as wasteful. You could have filled in the blanks with your own wasteful project in order to make it realistic. I just wanted to make sure that it was universally viewed as wasteful so that I could retrieve purer data.

    If I said that it went to schools, for military, for libraries, for schools or something like that people may forget about the negative impact because they advocate the government project. These people would skew my data. Just imagine that the 5% is going to something that you firmly disagree with.

    I was actually answering your suggestion that Reagan started it.
