Imagine if President Obama proposed taxing the blackest or whitest or gayest or straightest or most religious 2% of all citizens at a higher rate than the rest of the population. Would anyone stand for picking on a minority like that? Would anyone stand for singling people out like that?
Now replace blackest/whitest/gayest/straightest/most religious with something like “most talented” or “most successful” and no one has a problem with it.
So much for the concept of equal treatment under the law. So much for equality.
Freedom is endowed by our creator, every person’s right, and results in the most efficient system available. Increased government control limits your freedom and eventually it will limit it enough that you have none left and it will be too late to respond.
