There’s an important fact that is missed by the “tax the rich” folk– besides the fact that “taxation” is theft whether they like to admit it or not. (And they don’t; they HATE it. It makes them crazy.)
If you “tax” wealthy people you are stealing from me.
Even if you don’t “tax” me, directly.
Even if you give me some “benefits” from it. I don’t want a cut of the loot.
You are stealing money he might use to start a business that would benefit me. Or money she might use to buy something from me. Or money he might donate to me because he has so much excess and can’t figure out how to use it.
But even if none of that happens, you are funding antisocial political government to my detriment.
It’s just as bad as calling for Big Business to “pay more taxes”. It’s a lie. I can’t afford for you to “tax” anyone.
“Taxation” steals from me even if it never touches me otherwise. It steals money, opportunities, and liberty.
I will never support a plan to “tax” anyone, for any reason, ever.a>
