Be Careful

Rambling, I definitely don’t see how I made your point. May I clarify?

If the Republicans refuse to select a candidate worthy of consideration (See John McCain and Bob Dole), what do you think the outcome would be? As for the $16 trillion in debt, this kind of debt has only recently happened and does not have 100 years of law as the Progressive Tax. In fact, the national debt as percentage of GDP usually goes above 40% in times of crisis (like this one). Please study the charts as they are available online. Your incessant rant about socialism does lose power when repeated over and over. Might I suggest instead of this constant Socialism mantra, you address each topic with well thought out research and logic as how come to your conclusions?

I do agree the issue is President Obama has almost doubled the national debt in 3 years. However, because the Republicans can’t pick a good candidate, maybe we should focus our energy on winning the Senate.
I never said a Progressive tax was good or right. However, the Federal Government has to raise money to operate. How much that is; is the rub. Why don’t we just have national lotteries or national sales tax? Or is no tax good to you? How would you fund the Federal government?

Further, a Progressive tax is not socialism. Even according to your own quote, “according to his means, to each according to his needs," a progressive tax has nothing to do with needs. The real issue with Obama and socialism is the cost and number of needs he trying to make “rights” like health insurance, etc.

Your statement, “we have strayed from the Constitution and simple fairness and morality,” appears to one man’s opinion devoid of logical argument or law. Please read the Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court Case which it was determined progressive tax was constitutional.

Further, why is a progressive tax not fair or immoral? I would suggest most people (no study, my opinion) is someone who makes $250k/year can afford paying a greater percentage. So, they don’t get that extra trip to Europe or they don’t get that third vacation home.

With that said, I am against the income tax all together. I would rather see no income tax and a Progressive sales tax or luxury tax. By having a progressive sales tax, the individual can decide if the additional cost is worth the extra tax. Does building a $1M home really add that much more value to society than a $100k house? So, if you are rich and you want it, pay for it. You want to drive a new BMW versus a Kia Rio, pay for it.

As for social policies, some are so engrained that it is too late and not worth argument. Social Security is one of them. It even has the word “Social” in it. We are stuck with it, like it or not. Let’s focus on those things we can fix.
