Guywithaheart. I don't think you get it. It's called trickle down oppression by me. That's how I see it. Ya start with the very wealthy, taxing their income and wealth to the max, then move on to the next lower class of citizens as being perceived as having more than their "fair share", then do the same with each class of society. When all is said and done, and we're all "equal" in income and wealth. There will be none, except for the sycophants(butt kissers) of the elite who will rule us. Study history.
The income tax was sold to the citizens as being just for the very wealthy. it expanded rather quickly to include anyone who "earned" a paycheck. Oh yeah, and it was gonna be temporary. That didn't work out too well, did it? Research it.
