    EVERYONE should pay.

    Since the poor consume the most services, they should be paying the most.

    Because politicians gain power by selling favors.

    One huge favor politicians sell is the definition of who gets taxed what and when. They're not going to give that up.

    Why not just charge everyone directly for the services they get? Send the poor a bill for welfare! You get $1,000 a month in assistance? You get a bill for $1,000 a month.

    Makes perfect sense!

    Woks for me.

    But, since there are SOOO many "charitable" socialists in this country, beyond a doubt if the governemnt ended it's unconstitutional practice of subsidizing poverty the socialists would step right up to help the poor using their own money.

    So there shouldn't be any problem at all.

    You care for the poor? Fine. Use your money to show it, not mine.

    A person should recieve personally tangible value for money taxed from him.

    Right. Charity will handle it. So you can pay whatever you pay in taxes now to charity instead.

    No, I'm from the local charity, please give me YOUR money so I can use it to care for the poor.

    I'm not stupid enough to equate taxation with charity.

    Some people are.

    I'm not one of those.

    Sorry, you'll have to find some FLOB socialist who said someone should do something to help the poor, then point out they're someone and you've come to collect.

    I'm one of the someones who are honest enough to admit that if I had a rat's ass I wouldn't give it to the poor.

    So are we all on board for charging everyone what they take from the government? Let's take that plan to Congress.

    Libs claim that their concept of fairness is the only one that counts. I believe that there are several concepts of fairness including

    1) the more you use the more you pay

    2) it is not fair to make someone else pay for your existence unless they caused your existence (ie parents)

    3) if you have to pay more you should get more government privileges-like votes

    that is the problem with a progressive income tax--the parasite class can outvote the net tax Producers
    in the long run, the parasites lose though
