I'll say it; I'm opposed to progressive income taxes AND progressive personal property taxes. I don't use any more services from my local school district or fire department than my neighbor in the house down that street that is 500 sq. ft. smaller than mine.

Progressive taxation undermines the idea that we, as a nation, are all in this together. Instead, it parallels the slogan popularized by Karl Marx, "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs". It's B.S.

Too many rich people are causing a jobless “recovery.” Having too many rich people caused gas...
