Absolutely true, and I'll the perfect example...

There are people in this very country that believe that it's perfectly reasonable to force others to work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for the government, and ONLY Thursday and Friday for themselves...

[QUOTE=pjohns;994207]Some people appear to think that rich people have a duty--a moral duty, at least--to pay just as much as possible in income taxes.

But why should a different principle apply to them than applies to the rest of us, just because they much wealthier?

I believe that those people who believe this would really be much more comfortable with socialism than with capitalism...[/QUOTE]

I believe your right. The left will never be happy until we are all making close to the same amount of money. Unfortunately it would not bring UP salaries, it would just lower all salaries to the lowest common denominator. I'm sure many lefties would be happy if ALL people made minimum wage. They would call that "Fair".

It's funny how the left is always happy when their politicians talk about raising taxes on the wealthy. As if they are going to benefit somehow.

No the political elites and ultra wealthy would continue to be richly rewarded. Joe Biden lives well beyond the means of a 50 year public office holder but no questions are allowed. The Obama's complain about systemic racism from their $13 million home. The tech oligarchs are willing to practice about any form of repression to keep friendly Democrat socialists in charge. Socialism is not for the socialists it's for the rest of us.
