    Why Liberals Spread Poverty
    By Kevin McCullough

    EXCERPT

    Liberals would prefer more people to experience poverty. Their actions demonstrate their massive desire to see more people unemployed, and under paid. One of their chief political goals is to cripple the chance for the impoverished from improving their lot in life and thus become even more dependent upon entitlements that only they (liberals) will dole out. Thus the greatest con in elective politics begins again.

    It's called a "surcharge."

    SNIP

    Liberals see the economic pie as something that is static, does not grow, and must always be redistributed. Of course they fancy the idea that they know best how to redistribute it all - and in doing so they buy into the Marxian idea: "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need." An utterly immoral viewpoint!

    Conservatives see the economic pie as something that is somewhat unlimited and can be grown and that when it is grown - people will actually pay MORE in taxes - but will do so off of greater earnings.

    And the lesson of Kennedy, Reagan, and Bush confirm that it is true.

    It's called "self-preservation", and any animal is subject to the desire.

    To me this is why the best tax - none are really good - is one based on a fixed percentage of the exchange of tangible goods and services without regard to the property ownership or income level of the individual. This would force the government to do things that support - I won't say cause because only capitalism does that - the increased production of tangible goods and services. In the final analysis all taxes are paid by individuals. Taxes on corporations and complex property and income tax schemes employ lots of tax accountants, tax lawyers, and tax collectors.
