    I already did debunk your argument with the words of the founding fathers in the Constitution of the United States. Their idea of a fair tax was done by the number of people living in each state and every person had to pay the exact same amount.

    For example, Congress passes a measure to raise money to pay for the Army and Navy that is 50 million dollars. There are one million people living in each of the fifty states, so every person's tax liability came to exactly $1. This is why there is a census every ten years.

    Taxes upon goods produced in any of the states in the Union is prohibited on the federal and state level when they are exported/imported into another state in the Union. Goods exported outside of the Union to foreign countries are subject to taxation as long as such taxation is spread across all goods exported. Goods imported into the Union from foreign countries are subject to taxation since the founding fathers' thinking was to foster the entrepreneurial spirit at home and to prevent dependence upon a foreign nation.

    I don't think that the constitutional architects has the L curve in mind when they wrote that. It would be interesting to see that they say unambiguously where poor should pay the same taxes as the ultra rich.

    The founders did not support income redistribution. Whine all you want, the founders were not interested in being forced by the government they created to have their wealth taken to pay for "the unfortunates"

    I am of the libertarian mind if you can't tax fairly the poor then there should be no taxes.

    Basically you complain about taxes on the wealthy but no worry about tax burden on the poor. Really quite hypocritical.

    Article I Section IX Clause IV

    No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.

    They said it and codified into the supreme law of the land. They believed in a meritocracy where those that deserved wealth would earn it and those that didn't work to better themselves would not. A lot of famous and rich people started with nothing to end up becoming billionaires and presidents. They advanced themselves based upon their merit alone.
