    Not all citizens are able to earn income. This makes it impossible for all citizens to pay income taxes.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    That may be true but why should someone else have to pay for them?

    So we should abolish all income tax because not everyone has income.

    You're on a roll.

    Because I bought lemonade from you, I have a right to what you did with the proceeds from that lemonade?

    Um....no. The people who bought those prodicts/services beneffited from those purchases; their full interest was served with said benefit.
    The person who made the lemonade should enjoy the proceeds from it, and the person who picked the lemons. Not some mafia guy who does nothing but take the proceedings.

    He does, because the guy that sold the lemonades bought the lemons.

    You mean the government? Yes, I agree.

    What about the guy who built the road to bring the lemons and sugar, and the guy who built the pipe to bring the water?

    That would be the government I suppose, I do support income tax(all surplus money that comes in, in some form or another).... I would like it to be flat tax of say 25% for everyone, no exceptions. 25 cent per dollar.

    I think we should "build the ways together"...

    I believe in socialism, as in cooperating, making and taking care of the necessary together...

    They were paid for their efforts, and their claim ends there.

    You'll have to be far more clear as to what you mean and how you think this applies here.
