    Should ALL citizens pay income taxes?

    What do you think? Should all [working] people who want to live in our country be required to pay income tax?

    I voted Other, Income should not be taxed.

    Since income is taxed then everyone should be taxed.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why the hell can we not tax everyone 10% of their income? Just a percentage which stays the same, across the board.

    I used to think so but I've thought of something a bit more constructive.

    I think that those who want full citizenship privileges should have to pay taxes and/or do something positive for the community yearly.
    Now that doesn't mean you lose your rights to free speech, assembly etc.
    With my idea you do lose other things like voting, the ability to carry a concealed weapon and some other things I haven't thought of.

    I think full citizenship should be earned not given.
    You can tell that difference between born citizens and naturalized citizens of the U.S.

    Born citizens seem to take everything we have for granted.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    In theory, not a bad idea.

    But how much? And what is defined as income?

    Because 10% off of a poor person means the difference between them being able to eat and being able to pay their heating bill while 10% off a rich person means they buy one fewer vacation home.
