Tax the rich?
November 14, 2019
To The Eagle:
First of all a person only becomes rich if he/she or someone in their family had a good idea or a needed product and went about developing it and marketing it. Which resulted in wealth from exchange for their products or services produced and delivered.
“Tax the Rich” is not a new idea. Even the Beatles had a song about it. “Tax the rich and feed the poor till there are no poor no more.” Nice idea, but…
Why should a person who has managed to gather some wealth be penalized by being required to support those who choose not to work to support themselves?
Even a person with disabilities can generally find some way to support themselves.
Why are there poor at all? My answer to that questions is: Because they choose to be poor and depend on others rather than make their own way, create their own future and supply their own needs.
Penalizing those who have been or are successful in life is not a solution that will last. Nor will it ensure the future of this country as a whole and all its members.
Come on Folks, think “Productive,” not parasitic. Produce some self generated resource, which results in: Pride, integrity and self respect. As well as a good living!
