You are equating the tax rate for WWII with today? I mean, you do realize that those tax rates reflected the cost of funding WWII don't you? You aren't one of those people who don't know about WWII are you?
Seriously, you are making a case for usurious taxation by comparing tax rates during WWII? Maybe you are a product of modern education. Have you ever heard of "World War II?" Maybe you fell asleep during history class for a few years. Anyway from 1941 through 1945 the US was fighting what is known as World War II.
It was a big deal.
For instance, at the end of the war the US Navy had almost 7,000 ships. There were 16,000,000 men in uniform. And yet you are using WW II tax rates as a comparison. Really?
