    On his income whatever the tax rate is. I am a proponent of higher marginal rates for higher incomes. On his stock wealth,depends on when if ever he sells.

Simple as pie. Since the last 40 years everything has gone to the top with massive increases of wealth going to the already wealthy and not one dime extra and in fact a loss for the American worker. So my proposal to be fair, is to turn it around totally for the next 40 years and all new wealth going to the people who actually work for a living , that include the working poor that get ****. These wealthy pigs don't earn it, deserve it or need it. And all you suckers that's real capitalism.
    No... just no. I'm not going to be part of mass theft, aside from some of the more outstanding standards for taxation that our country already has.

    Many of the people who have such money, have it because they are the ones who earned it. Either through the work that they placed into obtaining, or by taking on all of the risk in trying to accrue it.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    Better yet all the lazy drones that think the government should support them need to get off their collective asses and get a job. They can build their own wealth.

    plus rich people do work, pretty hard in most cases, unless they are just inheritors or trust fund babies.
    If you can put together a tax structure that puts every dime of new wealth of a country into the hands of the rich , tell me then why you can't do the opposite. There will be no revolution that I advocate. Jobs that are set up to make profit by paying non livable wages are simply wrong. It forces everyone else to pay for the workers subsistence with tax dollars and that is ridiculous . Why should tax money be the way for a company to have a profit. I mean talks about welfare.

    I'm Not advocating taking away anything, tell me when I said that. Changing tax structure is giving the benefit to those who deserve it. From those that don't need it, earn it or deserve it. They got there free ride for 40 years now it is the workers chance for the next 40 years , seems fair to me.

    all of this is nonsense. Lottery winners. Wages that you can't live on forcing me to have my tax money payed for the profit of some company is simply wrong. So you believe in no taxes. Tell me how that will work. Taxes do nothing except picks winners and losers and the way it is set up now, every new dollar in wealth goes to the top.

    I'm getting the impression many Right Wing types want to Pay NO taxes yet enjoy the benefits of others who have...Get rid of the off shore Tax dodges and Swiss Bank accounts and start from there
