No, only those who make over the "living wage"
No, only those in the top 10%
Yes, every working person should have to pay.
50x GDP per capita inheritance maximum, should be enough to secure them at least a decent living condition the rest of their life, but it would also encourage them to make an effort. They deserve that much if their parents made such a good effort to get rich, and they deserve that little, to socially manipulate them into being constructive citizens.

Because I bought lemonade from you, I have a right to what you did with the proceeds from that lemonade?Doesnt the society buy those products and the worker make that possible?
Um....no. The people who bought those prodicts/services beneffited from those purchases; their full interest was served with said benefit.
If I am a farmer and it costs me 1 dollar a bushel to raise corn and I sell it to people at arms length transactions for 1.50 a bushel and I raise one million bushels I make a "profit" of 500K upon which I will pay say 150K of taxes. Now how someone who has nothing to do with me raising that corn claims he is entitled to that 350K is beyond me since I have already paid taxes on it. What is even more disgusting is the claim that if I decide to save that money and invest it rather than blow it on expensive dinners, booze, or vacations, I should be prevented from giving what is accumulated to whom or what I want when I die.
Even if the people I did business with are part of the parasite hordes, the fact is they have no just claim on my profit. They agreed that a bushel of corn was worth 1.50 to them and paid that to me and in return they got a dollar fifty worth of corn. They are no more entitled to part of my fifty cent profit than I am to come to their home and eat some of that corn
No, only ones with income. Typical republicans, put half the people out of work, then complain because half the people don't pay income taxes.Should ALL citizens pay income taxes?
