Of Mice and Income Taxes

I hear many people say that they think the rich should pay more taxes, that the Bush administration just does "tax cuts for the rich" and blah blah blah.

I don't think the rich should have their income taxes raised. In fact, I think they should have their income tax rates cut to zero, along with everyone else, with one exception.

The only people I think should have to pay income taxes are those people who have such little regard for the property of their fellow man that they think other people should have to pay taxes, because "they can afford to pay higher taxes."

Those people need to realize that the only reason they have the income tax today is because politicians fed on that attitude a hundred years ago. Of course, the income tax would only be applied to the richest of the rich, the ones "who could afford to pay more" in taxes than the rest of us. Feh.
