Trump’s $750 Payment to Society’s Enemy

Am I bothered that Donald Trump only “paid” $750 in taxes in some specific years?

That’s like asking if I’m bothered that some billionaire only donated $750 to ISIS, Antifa, or to the KKK.

Or, like asking whether I’m bothered that someone only gave a mugger $750 rather than the million$ the mugger would have preferred.

I’m more bothered that the bad guys got any money from him. I’d rather he’d “paid” them nothing.

Taxation is theft, and theft is wrong no matter who it victimizes. I don’t want Kamala Harris to “pay” any taxes. I don’t even want Hillary Clinton to “pay” any taxes.

Money kept out of the hands of The State– society’s enemy— is always better than money going to The State, even if it’s in the hands of someone I can’t stand who I believe will use it for evil. I know The State will use it to violate life, liberty, and property– that’s just a given because that’s what it has always done and what it always does.

I’m glad for anyone keeping their money from The State.

Nicely stated.

I think people are being ridiculous when they claim it is not “fair” that someone who has a high income pays less income tax than others who have a lower income. That is like someone complaining because a robber stole $200 from them but only stole $75 from someone else who is wealthier than they are. It like they believe that a robber should steal more from some people than others.
