You are really one sick twisted LEFTIST freedom-hater, bub. I don't even know where to begin since there's just so much WRONG with what you say. For example, "if this country needs a higher percentage of people paying taxes." What??? The idea is to have fewer and fewer people paying less and less in taxes so the government has less money or NO money at all in order to further restrict our liberty and freedom. You're a card-carrying Communist Party member, right??
