How Does Taxing the Rich Help You…Tax Makers v Tax Takers

The speaker in this 2.5 minute video asks some compelling questions

“Would someone please explain to me how increasing taxes on some rich guy  puts somebody  else back to work. Or how taxing a  small business  owner create small business jobs?”

Video 2.3 minutes Millions in Pennsylvania are watching this video and similar videos on the Internet. The Left, typified by VP Joe Biden, MSNBC, The View and so many others, despise the fiscal common sense voter, the productive Forgotten Tax Payer,  that it can only redirect the conversation with insulting and demonizing caricatures.

There are productive Tax Makers and unproductive Tax Takers; there are those who want something better and are willing to work for it and there are others who want “free stuff”.  If the later prevail, we all fail and our standard of living declines. It is happening in Europe and it can happen here.

There is a well known dynamic that can occur if “democracy” rather than Constitutional Limited Government prevails. The French  writer, Frederic Bastiat made many salient points in The Law  and some salient Bastiat Quotes

  “Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their government schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their regulations, their restrictions, their equalization by taxation, and their pious moralizations!

And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works.”
